Pilot Parallel Pens User Guide

What is a Pilot Parallel Pen?

The Pilot Parallel Pen is a unique calligraphy pen that offers a smooth and effortless writing experience. It is designed with a parallel plate structure, allowing for consistent ink flow and precise lines. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced calligrapher, the Pilot Parallel Pen is a versatile tool that can enhance your writing and artistic skills.

How to Assemble the Pilot Parallel Pen

Assembling the Pilot Parallel Pen is a simple process. Start by unscrewing the pen barrel and removing the cap. Take the ink cartridge and insert it into the pen barrel, making sure it is securely in place. Then, screw the pen barrel back onto the pen body. Finally, replace the cap and you are ready to start writing!

Choosing the Right Nib Size

The Pilot Parallel Pen comes in four different nib sizes: 1.5mm, 2.4mm, 3.8mm, and 6.0mm. The nib size determines the width of the lines you can create. If you prefer smaller, more delicate lines, the 1.5mm nib is ideal. For bolder, more expressive lines, the 6.0mm nib is a great choice. Experiment with different nib sizes to find the one that suits your style and project.

Using the Pilot Parallel Pen

When using the Pilot Parallel Pen, it is important to hold the pen at a consistent angle. The pen should be held at a 45-degree angle to the paper, allowing the nib to make full contact with the surface. This ensures smooth ink flow and optimal line quality. Practice maintaining a consistent angle to achieve the best results.

Tips for Care and Maintenance

To prolong the life of your Pilot Parallel Pen, it is important to clean it regularly. After each use, rinse the nib with water to remove any excess ink. Gently wipe the nib with a soft cloth or paper towel to ensure it is clean and free from any residue. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they can damage the pen. With proper care, your Pilot Parallel Pen will provide you with many hours of creative enjoyment.

Exploring Creative Possibilities

The Pilot Parallel Pen opens up a world of creative possibilities. Experiment with different ink colors to add vibrancy to your artwork. Try blending colors together for unique effects. The pen can be used for a variety of projects, including calligraphy, lettering, illustrations, and more. Let your imagination run wild and explore the endless creative opportunities that the Pilot Parallel Pen offers.


The Pilot Parallel Pen is a versatile and reliable tool for calligraphy enthusiasts and artists alike. With its parallel plate structure, easy assembly, and range of nib sizes, it provides a smooth and enjoyable writing experience. By following the user guide and practicing regularly, you can unlock your creativity and achieve beautiful, professional-looking results.

A remarkable calligraphy fountain pen, the Pilot Parallel Pen is the perfect tool to discover this ancestral art and perfect your skills. Equipped with a stainless steel calligraphy nib composed of two rectangular blades, it allows you to easily create elegant letters, magnificent ornaments and incredible upstrokes and downstrokes. With a very soft nib that glides across the paper, this Pilot fountain pen is perfectly irrigated thanks to the Pilot ink regulator which offers perfect ink flow for a constant line, no matter what your writing speed.

This calligraphy kit contains a fine-tip Parallel Pen, two IC-P3 fountain pen ink cartridges (black and red), a pipette to clean the inside of the pen in between changing colours, and a very thin plastic sheet that can remove any paper fibres stuck in the calligraphy nib's double blade.

Pilot’s Parallel Pen is available in six different nib sizes, easily recognisable by the cap colours: red - 1.5 mm nib width (0.5 mm - 1.3 mm line); orange - 2.4 mm nib width (0.5 mm - 2.2 mm line); pink - 3.0 mm nib width (0.5 mm - 2.8 mm line); green - 3.8 mm nib width (0.5 mm - 3.6 mm line); turquoise - 4.5 mm nib width (0.5 mm - 4.3 mm line); blue 6.0 mm nib width (0.5 mm - 5.7 mm line).

The breakthrough in calligraphy pen technology: the PARALLEL PEN!

Unique stainless steel double-blade nib comes in four different widths and can be used at angles to create lines of varying thickness.

You can also transfer ink from the nib of one PARALLEL PEN to another, and create attractive graduated lettering.

The parallel pen comes with black and red ink and is refillable with twelve different ink colours (black, blue, red. Green, yellow, brown, orange, violet, pink, light blue, light green, blue/black) using IC-P3 Cartridges.

Available in 6 tip sizes - 1.5/ 2.4 / 3.0 / 3.8 / 4.5 / 6.0 mm
