Pilot Iroshizuku Bishamonten is from the 100th Anniversary collection. Bishamonten is made in Japan and is a muted red with some medium shading and medium gold sheen. It dries in 20 seconds in a medium nib on Rhodia and has a wet flow.

Bishamonten's(毘沙門天) origins can be traced back to Hinduism, but he has been adopted by the Japanese culture. He comes from the Hindu god Kubera and is also known by the name "Vaisravana" from Hindu culture.

He is the god of fortune in war and battles, also associated with authority and dignity. He is the protector of those who follow the rules and behave appropriately. As the patron of fighters, he is represented dressed in armour and a helmet, carrying a pagoda in his left hand. He also acts as the protector of holy sites and important places and holds a spear in his right hand to fight against the evil spirits. He is usually depicted in illustrations with a hoop of fire.
