Pilot Vanishing Point White Carbonesque fountain pen
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.

    Must. Have. ASAP.


    Looks like vanilla ice cream. Yummy pen. I do wish Pilot would stop doing that, though – keeping finishes seemingly at random, like only importing limited quantities of Smoke and Clear Custom 823s… it isn’t like black isn’t popular. You’ll bring 2 $640 raden pens to the U.S. but not this pen? :

    White is one if the natural colours you’d imagine Pilot will launch. Especially since black and blue carbonesque look so nice!
