View Full Version : Pilot Vanishing Point Italic/Stub by Mike Masuyama - Blue Carbon, in Box!

March 12th, 2014, 11:33 PM

Excellent condition. Has mostly been a drawer filler and occasional list-maker. Only about 3 months old, using about 3x per week maximum. Never carried in pocket or as a commuter and stored in box consistently. Has lived in the same desk and box since purchase.

As I have matured in this hobby I have moved away from Italic and stub nibs and into fines and extra fines. I must let this one go to make room for the newcomers. This pen is a true delight and very unique pairing of a great body and a rare italic/stub nib. When the nib is held between at 11-12o'clock it writes like silk. There is some occasional feedback sound, but not due to resistance/scratchiness, just feedback - in my experience.

It comes in original box with a Blue Pilot Cartridge, metal cartridge cap, converter, receipt from Mike-It-Work (Michael Masuyama) for regrind from M to Stub verification, and will be cleaned and ready to go! Mike does wonderful work, look him up.

I am new to this forum and hobby but I have a business with 100% reviews on Yelp (out of 28+ reviews) that I will provide you the link for your verification via PM. I also have 100% rating on eBay that I will provide to you as well through PM. For what its worth, I am a professional and conduct myself in accordance with the reputation you will receive reference to.

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Price: $140. (MSRP = $140 + $45 regrind value included free)

Willing to Trade for Lamy 2000 Extra Fine in like new condition with all original materials.

Nice pen. I'd be interested, but why is it lower priced here (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pilot-Vanishing-Point-Blue-Carbon-Medium-Stub-Italic-Nib-in-Box-SHIPS-FREE-/161247999096?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item258b213478)?
