FP132. Radius-cut Parallel Pen (Modified)
FP132. Radius-cut Parallel Pen
(Pilot does not make this pen.)

This pen begins life as a 6.0 mm Pilot Parallel Pen...once our penmaker has worked his magic the pen is cut to a radius (curved) shape. This allows the pressure on the stroke to effect the ink flow. Great for experimenting and gestural work. The pen works better on paper with a bit of tooth. (Pilot does not warrant this midified pen.)
