Nib: Interchangeable Flex & Hard EF DILOT Iridium Nib. Size: 122.6 mm (From the Cap). History of Japanese-Made Pre-War Fountain Pen. Other than the big three (Sailor, Pilot, and Platinum) there were many Japanese fountain pen manufacturers that exist before in the 1930s and possessed as much history and tradition as the famous Japanese stationery company today. During the 1920s and 1930s, the popularity of fountain pens in Japan grew rapidly, with many people using them for both personal and professional purposes.Hence many independent small fountain pen brand began to emerge and compete with each other but at the same time, to supply one another with pen parts (Because at that time, all fountain pen was standardized and used traditional material such as ebonite and celluloid) Fountain pen manufacturers began to experiment with new materials and technologies, such as the introduction of piston fillers and vacuum fillers. However, the outbreak of World War II in 1941 had a significant impact on the Japanese fountain pen industry.
Production of luxury goods such as fountain pens was restricted during the war, and many manufacturers were forced to shift their focus to producing military equipment instead. Despite these challenges, few Japanese fountain pen companies survived & continued to operate after the war. The industry began to slowly recover, with now remaining manufacturers once again focusing on creating high-quality writing instruments for the domestic and international markets. After more than 84 years, We were able to acquire some of the remaining New Old Stock that was available during a pre-war era that was in the depository.This pen carries the history and legacy of Fountain Pen Company for more than 100 years. This pen is truly a piece of fountain pen history that was once forgotten and now retold to you. DILOT SUPER QUALITY: Interchangeable Semi-Flex Nib. The Japanese Vintage Fountain Pen employs a variety of Semi-Flex nib configurations. These nibs are designed to offer writers the ability to create broader strokes both within and between each stroke by applying pressure to the nib. This unique feature provides writers with the flexibility to engage in calligraphy. However, it's important to note that flex nibs are not universally favored. Non-Kanji writers and those who do not engage in calligraphy often prefer stable and rigid nibs. This preference arises from the fact that many individuals tend to apply significant pressure while writing. The nib itself is a marvel, distinct from anything I've encountered before, and it's quite rare to find such a nib in today's market.
This nib comes with a special outer case that serves as a tool to prevent bending or flexing. This case securely holds both sides of the nib, ensuring that even when pressure is applied, the nib remains unbent while writing. As a result, this unique construction leads to a distinct line quality and an altogether different writing experience.
