其實收藏短鋼以來,筆者一直都沒有入手Elite 95S。畢竟它至今仍持續生產,不算是罕有筆款,黑色與酒紅色桿也不是特別得我心。不過作為短鋼愛好者,不收一枝好像說不過去。終於,在日前,筆者遇到了一枝收藏價值與美麗兼備的Elite 95S——藍色株主限定版(株主優待品 エリート)!

As you may be aware, I am an absolute pocket pen lover. But, to be honest, I was not so interested in picking up the Pilot Elite 95S pocket fountain pen. It is because I am not particularly like the black and burgundy version and they are not rare. But how could a pocket pen lover doesn’t own an Elite 95S? Finally, I met an Elite 95S that is ravishing and highly collectable – blue corporate edition (株主優待品エリート)!

 

Elite短鋼筆系列起源於1968年面世的初代Elite S短鋼。2013年,百樂藉九十五週年之名復刻1974年的第二代Elite S短鋼,並命名為Elite 95S(外國別稱E95S)。黑色與酒紅色版本的Elite 95S於2013年6月25日在日本正式發售,標價10000円。百樂首年的銷售目標為八千枝。或因銷情理想,Elite 95S持續銷售至今。

The first Elite pocket pen, Elite S, was introduced in 1968. In 2013, Pilot reproduced the second generation of Elite S pocket pen released in 1974 and named it as Elite 95S (also known as E95S) to celebrate their 95th anniversary. Black and burgundy Elite 95S were launched in Japan in 25th June 2013 for JPY 10000. Pilot targeted to sell 8000 of them in the first year and they should have achieved it as they are still selling them today.

至於藍色的Elite 95S,則是專屬於百樂股東的限定版本。百樂設有股東福利制度。每年百樂都會向持有一定股票數的股東派發限定產品,內容物每年都不一樣。2014年12月,持有100至499股的股東獲贈了一套實用書寫工具套裝;擁有500股或以上的股東則獲贈高級書寫工具,即Elite 95S禮盒——內含一枝藍色Elite 95S及一枝15mL的色彩雫「月夜」墨水。

And here comes the main dish of today – blue Elite 95S. It is a corporate edition just for Pilot’s shareholders. Every year, Pilot gift their shareholder different special produce as a welfare. In December of 2014, shareholders who owned 100 to 499 shares of Pilot got a “practical writing instrument set”; And those who had more than 500 shares were gifted an “advanced writing instrument”, which is the Elite 95S pen set with one blue Elite 95S and 15mL of Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo ink.

2015年6月30日,百樂實施股票分割,股東手上的股票每股被分成兩股,股東福利制度亦隨之變動。獲得實用書寫工具套裝的要求更改為100至999股。而想要獲得股東限定的高級及實用書寫工具套裝,則需要持有1000股或以上。以2018年10月而言,這需要六百五十萬日元以上的資金⋯⋯

In 30th June 2015, Pilot split its stock 2-for-1. Each share held by a shareholder were split into two. Now you need shares between 100 and 999 to get a “practical writing instrument” and need more than 1000 shares for an “advanced writing instrument”. It, in October 2018, would cost you more than 6.5 million JPY (Nearly 60,000 USD I think…).

 

作為2014年股東限定禮品的藍色Elite 95S,存世數量應該相當稀少。根據百樂官網2018年6月的記錄顯示,現今的股東人數不過四千五百人而已。2014年尚未實施股票分割,股東的數目應該更少,而作為當年股東禮品的藍色限定版,生產數量之少可想而知。

I believe that just a few numbers of blue Elite 95S were produced. According to the record on the Pilot’s website on June 2018, there were just 4,500 shareholders of the company. The number of shareholders should be lesser back in 2014, since Pilot hadn’t split its stock yet. Therefore, Pilot should had made a very few of blue Elite 95S.

在機緣巧合之下,筆者收得了一套Elite 95S股東限定版。以下為簡略的開箱:

I was so lucky to get a set of blue Elite 95S corporate edition. The following are a brief display of it.

禮盒外觀。盒子和色彩雫15mL迷你版墨水套裝所用的盒子完全相同。

鋼筆使用說明書,上面標明「株主優待品」,即股東限定品,應是百樂特別印製的。

The instructions of the pen. “株主優待品”, which mean “special produce for shareholders”, was printed on it.

筆尖特寫。出廠日期刻印為「1114」,代表2014年11月出廠。

附贈的Con-20吸墨器早已就被裝填在內,隨時可以使用或拔除。

在網上搜集資料期間,看到有不少筆友對藍色的Elite 95S有興趣。筆者亦相信若果百樂公開發售藍色版本,銷路應該相當不錯。但是藍色版本既為「株主限定」(有筆友戲稱之「株主藍」,相當有趣且貼切),可能性可謂微乎其微。不過既然百樂都推出了藍色的Elite 95S,未來會否開發更多顏色或款式呢?作為一個短鋼愛好者,自是拭目以待。而筆者現在入手了藍色版本,又有點心癢癢想要入手黑色和紅色,組成一套。若真實行,屆時再分享「全家福」給大家看吧。

When I was searching the information of this blue Elite 95S on the Internet, I saw lots of people are interested in buying it. I also believe that if Pilot sold it on the market, it would become a hot-seller. However, that is not quite possible since Pilot had made it as a gift specifically for their shareholder. But may Pilot launch out more Elite 95S in different colors in the future? I, as a super pocket pen lover, really look forward to it. Now, after I bought this blue Elite 95S, I have an impulse to buy both black and burgundy Elite 95S. You may see the photo of the whole collection of Elite 95S in this website someday in the future. XD

    Thank you for traslation.
    Not a big fan of blue pens but thats cool that Pilot give pens to their shareholders each year I didn’t know that, though buying shares for 40-60k usd to get a pen each year isn’t a best way to do it 😀 i guess it’s more like a gift and for memory for them. Wonder if Platinum or Sailor have same practice to share pens.

      Thank you for your support, Lomarion!
      I also didn’t know that until I looked for the information of this pen. I believe that buying those pens in the second hand market would be a better way for us, whose are not a super-rich people, to get those pens.😂

      I didn’t discover any information about giving pen to shareholder as a welfare at the official website of Platinum and Sailor. Maybe Pilot is the only company to do that?

The Peak Tram - the oldest public transport in Hong Kong. It started operating from 1888. From 23 April 2019, it will temporarily suspend service for upgrading for 2-3 months. Can it maintain its own style after the upgrade project? 山頂纜車 - 香港歷史最悠久的公共交通工具,始於1888年。 聽說今月23號開始便要進行維持翻新,暫停2-3個月,昨天特意拾級登太平山去留影。 翻新以後,能否仍保住原有的味道呢?⋯我的感覺就如第一張相片。 2019.04.12 #fujifilm #fuji #fujifilmxt2 #fujixt2 #thepeak #peaktram #thepeaktram #peaktramhongkong #peaktramhk
