I’m curious about these new Pilot Stargazer fountain pens. I have had good experiences with Pilot fountain pens and for some reason, I really like the name Stargazer. (Maybe because it makes me think of Starwalker…)
The new Pilot Stargazer fountain pens come in four colors – red, blue, white, and the classic black. They are on the smaller side, but are still solid with brass caps and barrels. The finishes are pearl in each color, accented with rhodium trim. These fill by cartridge/converter.
From the forum, AltecGreen informs us that this pen appears to be a US market version of the Legance 89, which had a marbled resin body and a more ornate cap band, but they both have similar prices.
The Stargazer is available with a 14K solid gold rhodium-plated nib in fine or medium grade only. At an MSRP of $190, but expected to sell around $152, you get a pretty nice package.
