"Nioh" is known as Vajradhara in Sanskrit--the guardians of Buddhism and temple buildings. These mystical entities are deeply rooted in Japanese culture and loved as trusted talismans against evil. People believe that if they pray to Nioh, they will maintain good health and strong legs. Combined with Pilot's anniversary number of "88" (a number signifying increasing prosperity and well-being), the Nioh is a writer bearing good luck for your writing. Urushi lacquer and gold form the dazzling presentation of the 88th Anniversary Nioh, and an exceptional 18k gold nib delivers the celebratory ink.
