FP67. Pilot Parallel Pen.
Extremely smooth writing from this pen, offering crisp edges and sharp hairlines. Nib point consists of two parallel metal plates and allows for lettering in two sizes. Use the 0.5mm edge for sharp, monoline writing or use the broad edge for calligraphic writing. You can also produce color-blended letters by touching ink from one pen to a second pen loaded with another color. Available in six sizes, includes one red and one black cartridge and a cleaning bladder.
Specify size: 1.5mm, 2.4mm, 3.0mm, 3.8mm, 4.5mm, 6.0mm
Just purchased the 1.5mm nib Pilot Pen and enjoy lettering with it. This nib size expands my range for dashing off a quick lettered postcard or for slower, more serious work. I've started using the Pilot Pens more frequently as they are inked and ready to go, which takes away the barrier of preparing a workspace with all the cleaning supplies. I'm actually doodling more and playing with shapes as I can just pick it up and put it down (with the cap on!) Thanks, John Neal!
I loved learning French Roundhand and how to use a broad edged pen for calligraphy. I bought the Pilot Parallel Pen 3.8 to be able to do calligraphy outside my home and just really enjoy the pens! I use the pens for French Roundhand, Uncial and am now learning Fraktur with the pens. They are different than dip pens, so they take a little getting used to but & really enjoy being able to take them with me to write!
These are great tools! I also got the book about Pilot pens and found some new info.
