The Pilot Parallel Pen is a remarkable and durable tool that offers crisp edges, sharp hairlines and a totally reliable, smooth flow of ink for beginners and seasoned lettering artists.
In a typical dip or cartridge pen, ink travels through one or more slits in the nib and feeds across the writing edge. Skipping (non-delivery of the ink) can occur, particularly in larger pens. The parallel pen has a totally different construction. Ink flows between two layers of metal lying on top of each other, delivering ink to the entire writing edge without fail.
Each pen comes with one black ink cartridge, one red ink cartridge, one pen cleaner pipette, one nib cleaner, and an instruction booklet.
The 1.0mm, 2.0mm, and Slant pens have been cut down to a custom size. Since we have modified these products from their original factory condition, all original factory packaging is included but may not apply specifically to these products. This also accounts for their raised price.
