This pen has never been inked; its in perfect, unused condition. Five things that make this pen amazing. Japanese Maki-e and Raden Artistry. Literally it means sprinkled picture, and takes years of training. Raden is a technical style of lacquerware that uses inlaid material. This pen uses maki-e in which a black lacquer is applied to sparkling pieces of inlaid abalone. Pilot invented capless fountain pens in 1964. Theres no cap to lose or fumble with, and your pen wont dry out. A mechanism brings in the nib and closes the opening behind it when not in use. The only complaint people had about this pen? For some, the clipbeing at the front of the peninterfered with holding and writing. Now its perfect to hold. The only Raden model now available at Pilots USA site? On Amazon theres one dealer who has one. Pilot has ended production of the Galaxy. Never Used, Never Inked, Plus Accessories. This pen is in pristine condition.
