Calligraphy Pens Categories
Thousands of years ago, the Egyptians first used reeds fashioned from bamboo-like plants to scratch messages in mud or stone. Although calligraphy pens evolved over time, the same artful expression of the scripted word is still capable of assigning subtle meanings not available when using typeface letters. In fact, calligraphy preceded the alphabet and was likely the catalyst for the creation of a fixed set of ornate but assigned letters. With the passing of generations, other materials such as hair from animals and quills from feathers were used by different cultures to communicate written expressions. Even today's modern metal-nib calligraphy pens and fountain pens can be traced to less modern times when metal tipped writing instruments were used to engrave letters in thin sheets of wax. Notwithstanding, many of those who appreciate hand lettering of architectural sketches, technical drawings, artistic works, and even expressive doodling believe the calligraphy pen can achieve a much higher level of detail.
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.
