The Pilot Vanishing Point is one our favorite and most recommended fountain pens, regardless of price range. It scored a whopping 8.3 in our Awesome Review and comes in an almost ridiculous number of colors. A new one this year, that’s not a special edition, is White Carbonesque.
The Carbonesque finish gives the pen a carbon-fiber like appearance and adds some character to what would otherwise be a dull monotone finish. To be honest, I’ve never actually thought about a White Carbonesque finish, but now that I’ve seen it, I really like it.
Unfortunately, it will not be available in the US. Pilot USA’s official response to my inquiry was:
Pilot USA will not be bringing in this design of the Vanishing Point.
Bummer, right? Of course, there’s always engeika.com. We’ll let you know when it becomes available.
