These are two of my sisters fountain pens. The front pen is her new Pilot Legno 89s fountain pen in deep red, and features a rhodium-plated 14K nib. It is an open-grain (as opposed to sealed/varnished) “wood” finish – which is actually a resin-impregnated compressed laminated wood product. Both barrel and cap are lathe-turned from this solid yet light-weight material. One website stated the body was made from “Kabanoki” is Cherry tree called the “Queen of broad leaf tree” in Japan. Kabanoki Wood is used to make furniture, so the grain pattern is relatively bold and tough. Believe what you want.
The white pen is a Pilot Stella 90s in pearl/white. It has a pearly painted lacquered brass body and is heavier than the Legno. It also features the rhodium-plated 14K nib. This pen, appropriately named Stella, is one of her favorite pens. Both pens look and feel similar to the Pilot Prera pens.
