Hi this is my first post. I've been looking at pens for a while and interested but unsatisfied with what's out there so I decided to design my own.
Interested to hear what you think.
Inspiration:
Pilot vanishing point (capless) Black enamel with matte chrome
Faber-Castell Ondoro
Conid standard piston filler demonstrator with titanium nib

A self-filling retractable demonstrator...a very ambitious concept.

Do you have any manufacturing/prototyping capabilities? Or is this just a dream?

Yes just a dreamer.
I guess I would have to request permissions from pilot to use the proprietary mechanisms.

Love it! Why not write to Pilot? You never know what you might have started... They'll probably write back asking you whether you can expand the project to include urushi :-)
