The first PILOT fountain pens began to be produced in Japan in 1918. Ryosuke NAMIKI, a mechanical engineer and professor at the Tokyo Merchant Marine Collage, was captivated by the ingenuity of these fountain pens that his contemporaries called “10,000 year brushes” because of the uninterrupted flow of ink. Using his industrial engineering skills, he created a high-quality prototype. After forming a partnership with one of his colleagues, Masao WADA, he established NAMIKI MANUFACTURING COMPANY and began manufacturing fountain pens. As a tribute to their other shared passion, the sea, the couple used the brand name PILOT, referring to the flagship of the fleet. In 1938 the company became PILOT PEN Co Ltd.
