The Pilot Explorer is one of our favorites for everyone from fountain pen beginners to those who just want a reliable, yet inexpensive everyday writer. Explorer's aluminum construction assures you of durability while being lightweight. The ergonomic grip section makes everything from doodling to note taking easy. Available in fine and medium nib sizes, the pen comes nicely presented in a black gift box with view window and includes one ink cartridge. For those who love cartridge ink use, we have good news: Pilot's are the most economical.
For those who prefer bottled ink use, the long barrel design of the Explorer allows for use of Pilot's CON 70 plunger-style ink converter which is not only incredibly easy to use, it also has an extremely generous ink capacity! A Pilot Explorer combined with the CON 70 converter is an "inkredible" team!
