Iroshizuku , meaning drop ( shizuku) of color ( iro ) in Japanese, is the name given to Pilot brand inks that celebrate Japan's beautiful natural landscape. These sublimely colored inks are found in blown glass bottles whose bottom is ingeniously angled to allow you to use up the last drop.

Murasaki shikibu is the Japanese name given to the very pretty autumn shrub Callicarpa japonica. Interesting fact: Murasaki Shikibu is also the nickname of a writer and lady-in-waiting at the imperial court during the Heian period.

In 1915, Ryōsuke Namiki, a mechanical engineer and professor at the University of Marine Science and Technology in Tokyo, quit his job and, together with his colleague Masao Wada, founded a small factory to manufacture gold nibs for fountain pens, which they named Namiki Manufacturing Company. Three years later, Pilot was born.

With its wide range of writing instruments, Pilot has quickly become one of the best and most popular pen companies on the market.
