Pilot Limited Edition Fountain Pen Roka
This is an unusual Pilot Limited Edition Fountain Pen which we find it unusual in that the pen clip is engraved with a key symbol and the 18kt gold pen nib is engraved with a pair of Maple leaf motif.
The cap is made of wood while the barrel is made of resin and enhanced with gold plated trimmings. It is probably made for commemorative issue as it has a 132nd number engraved on the pen nib. Pen fills ink using either cartridge or knob filling converter.
