Pilot Vanishing Point Fountain Pen - Black Barrel with Gold Trim
The Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen features an unconventional mechanism that is more commonly found in ballpoint pens. With a retractable nib unit that is well hidden and sealed in the metal barrel, the nib will not dry out and you will never have to worry about losing a cap.
The pen has a larger body that is nice to hold on to for extensive period of writing. There is a clip that allows you to securely store the pen in your front pocket with the nib pointing upwards.
It is available in several barrel/trim colour combinations, all featuring an 18K gold nib that has a matching colour with the trim, i.e. gold trim will come with a gold colour nib, rhodium trim will come with a silver colour nib.
Each pen comes with a cartridge and a converter, nicely presented in a gift box. It is compatible with the Pilot IC-50 and IC-100 cartridges.
This pen, with medium nib, has a very good flow, without skipping. If it's not used for a few days and kept upright, it takes a few tries to get the flow started. Dealing with the vendor Inky Paw Stationery regarding delivery was a very pleasant experience.
