Pilot Capless Decimo Fountain Pen - Red
The Capless Decimo (10th in Spanish) is the 10th model since the release of the Capless fountain pen in 1963. It is a lighter and slimmer pen than the regular Capless, featuring a selection of soft metallic colours with a 18K gold nib.
Pilot's Capless is the world's first retractable fountain pen, and has been a long selling pen since its creation in 1963. It has gone through several redesigns to evolve into the Vanishing Point today.
The 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.
Each pen comes with a complimentary cartridge and a converter, nicely presented in a gift box. It is compatible with Pilot's IC-50 and IC-100 cartridges, as well as the CON-40 converter.
I got the extra fine nib, which is definitely extra fine with just enough flex I can get some line weight in my sketching. It's also pretty smooth for such a thin nib, the clicky noise it makes and the feel of the nib movement is great! makes me want to just play with it.
As for Inkypaw themselves they shipped this really quickly(expectantly give Covid stuff), the pen and ink I got came in perfect shape. Only negative I can think of is they used packing peanuts instead of something more environmentally friendly which may not be a problem for everyone and is not stopping me from ordering from them again should I need even more pens.
