In conversation with Pilot pen doctor Atsushi Takizawa

Mr Takizawa is primarily a fountain pen user, not a collector. His favourite pen is a vintage Pilot Capless FCN500R in black from 1984, when he first joined the company. He also enjoys using Pelikan’s M400 and M600 size Souverän fountain pens and sometimes makes slight adjustments to them. In his free time, Mr Takizawa enjoys cycling.
