In the late 19th century, an American tanner needed a better way to mark his leather hides and fashioned a crude ball-tipped pen filled with writer's ink. Unfortunately, the first ballpoint pen needed a coarser surface than paper to work properly and regular ink proved to be too thin. Five decades later, thousands of anxious customers waited outside the doors of Gimbels Department Store in New York to purchase the first commercially-produced ballpoint pen filled with a thicker, faster drying ink similar to that used for printing newspapers. The biggest challenge facing today's consumer comes in selecting the best pen to enhance their unique writing style. Whether you're shopping for a click action retractable pen or classic double twist grip, Pilot has the perfect line of writing instrument to match the task at hand.
Pilot is a global Japanese brand known for innovation and quality writing instruments. In Australia, Pilot is the brand of choice amongst consumers looking for a smooth writing experience combined with quality and reliability. The Pilot range is extensive, covering premium gold nib fountain pens to everyday ballpoint pens and markers. Most pens are manufactured in Japan, with some also made in France and the US.
Innovation is a key to Pilot’s global success. In 2005 Pilot created ‘FriXion’, Australia’s best selling erasable pen. FriXion uses a unique thermo-sensitive gel ink. The friction caused by rubbing the paper generates heat which causes the ink to become invisible. With no damage to the paper, you can erase and instantly re-write over your mistakes.
