The patented design of the Pilot Vanishing Point brilliantly allows the nib to retract completely into the barrel after use, protecting the nib and preventing leaks. Included with the Vanishing Point is a firm, rhodium-plated, 18K gold nib for superior performance.
Now available it gunmetal with matte black trim; a look that will capture attention with its understated style. The world’s most popular retractable fountain pen is a product rich in both history and outstanding performance. Its brilliant design and ingenious technology make it a pen you’ll want to use every chance you get!
The fountain pen comes in a unique presentation box that suspends it between clear plastic panels for a ‘floating’ effect – an outstanding display piece! The Vanishing Point utilizes the cartridge/converter filling system and includes the CON-50 style twist converter. The gunmetal and black Vanishing Point will be available in October for a retail price of $175.
|The VP is the second pen I recommend to people with a budget over $100. It’s a fantastic fountain pen that scored a 8.3 in our Awesome Review. I like this color combo and will add it to my collection, eventually. What I’m more excited about is that this is Pilot’s first VP with black trim, something that we may hopefully start to see more of.||Pilot proves again that they are not satisfied by simply producing the world’s most convenient fountain pen. They’ll not rest until they’ve created iterations enough to entice each and every one of us. This is a great looking Vanishing Point. Luckily, I’ve convinced myself to wait… hoping they’ll remove the black trim and make an All Gunmetal version. With my name on it, of course.||I generally like gunmetal grey, and the Vanishing Point is a great pen. However, I think the gunmetal grey and black make this pen look like a bread toaster. I’ll pass on this finish.|
