The first Pilot pens were launched in Japan in 1918. At this time, the country was opening up to Western influences and was importing European techniques. Over the years, Pilot has developed into one of the leading fountain pen brands. By listening to their customers, Pilot’s research has enabled them to create new standards in terms of comfort and innovative products.
