Pilot Vanishing Point Collection Video Script

This is the Pilot Vanishing Point Collection Fountain Pen. We've got it shown here in the box which it comes in. It's a blue leather box which most of the Pilot pens come in. It's got a hinge on the back so you can tilt that open to display or show the pen if you like to. The particular model we've have here is the yellow color and it comes in a wide selection of colors. It comes in red, blue, and black. Each of them come with either the gold or silver accent trim. This is the chrome trim here with the gold.

This is a unique pen and the thing that makes it really unique is the way the nib retracts into the pen and hides the nib. With most fountain pens you'll have to take the cap off or it has a cap to protect the nib, but this one actually retracts into the pen, similar to a ballpoint pen. This particular pen is either a cartridge or a converter style. It comes with both. The converter is inside the pen and you have to unscrew this top housing and then you can pull the whole section out, which you can replace that converter with a cartridge. This converter is a screw type converter. You have to be real careful putting it back in it that you put the nib the right direction so it doesn't damage the nib putting it back in. That screws right back onto the pen.

Underneath the false bottom of this box you have the extra cartridge if you would rather use that and it also has the user and care guide.

This is a great pen. It is really unique. You have got to have one of these. Get yours today at PenChalet.com!

I especially like the Carbonesque VP because it’s a bit heftier than the Decimo while still affording the VP option. The new stub nib is the frosting on the cake! This black Carbonesque joins four others that I own and will become one of my everyday pens! Pen Chalet was a pleasure to deal with! Highly recommend both the pen and the vendor!

I love the matte black version. This is one of several vanishing points which is a great pen and super convenient for quick notes. The extra fine is extremely fine so you have to have a need for something this fine. I also own the fin which is a smoother writing nib with much less feedback.

This was a birthday present for my wife. The stub nib was very harsh and scratchy out of the box, but I tuned it with some polishing pads. 9 months later, this is the only pen she wants to use and has stopped using the other 3 FPs she has.

perfect pen. pen chalet gave me an option to change the nip to 1mm stub, which serves me in every aspect to my full satisfaction.
solid high build quality, very smooth nip

ink sucking hole is about an inch above from the tip of the nip, therefore, snorkel would be required to fill it up from bottled ink.

I'm partial to softer springy and bouncy nibs (such as platinum 3776) - this nib fits the bill, and the retractable form makes it so convenient. I have the matte black: really enjoying its stealthy look and the texture of the matte surface. The weight and girth are ideal for my larger hands (I'm a tall woman) and well balanced. A smaller person might prefer the Decimo. In future I look forward to buying a second one in a different nib width, perhaps a limited edition body, and being able to swap bodies around will be great fun.

I love everything about this pen except filling it. It is a good weight, the ease of retracting the nib means the pen doesn't dry out from being left uncapped, and I love going clickity-clack with the button as I ponder. I do find that it doesn't hold as much as ink as I would like, and that it, like other PIlots I have, is messier to fill than my other pens. Good nib, beautiful pattern. Pen Chalet has awesome customer service, too!

I ordered the VP in Red/Gold, fine nib - I struggled with ordering this pen because of the cost and I wasn't sure about the clip location, the variance in nib sizes, or whether I needed this one or the smaller Decimo VP. I was pliantly surprised with everything about this pen! I absolutely love it and it was worth the leap of faith! The clip actually assists you in gripping the pen correctly to ensure the appropriate nib contact when writing and it does not at all bother my writing process. The red/gold colors are elegant and beautiful, and the pen fits my medium sized hand perfectly. I have many fountain pens, but this one was the most expensive I have purchased and I never realized the difference in a "more expensive" pens - very worth it!

FAQs about the Pilot Vanishing Point Collection

Q:
Is this pen appropriate for engraving?
Asked on Oct 4 2018 by Nancy
A:
The Pilot Vanishing Point is a great looking pen and will look wonderful with engraving.
Q:
(I can see that other people have asked about the colour of the nib matching the trim of the pen, so I'm sorry to bother you with essentially the same question, but I just want to be sure) Does the Black Carbonesque come with a rhodium plated and coloured nib, even though it looks gold in the photo? Thanks very much
Asked on Dec 4 2016 by Grace
A:
Yes the Black Carbonesque color of the Pilot Vanishing Point does match and the nib is the rhodium color.
Q:
Does the Black Rhodium pen come with a rhodium stub nib? Or is it gold color?
Asked on Nov 25 2016 by Jennie
A:
Each of the nibs on the Pilot Vanishing Point pens come with a matching nib to the color of the pen. The Black Rhodium would have a rhodium color nib to match the rest of the pen.
Q:
Does the Raden comes with a 18K gold , also in gold colour nib?
Asked on Sep 4 2016 by Queenie
A:
Yes the Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen in the raden comes with a rhodium coated 18k gold nib that is silver in color. The photo is not correct.
Q:
Do the Raden version come with a rhodium-plated nib now? (I believe Pilot is shipping them out with rhodium-plated nibs now, but I want to know what I'd get if I order from you!) Thanks!
Asked on Mar 22 2016 by Luciana
A:
Thank you for your question! Yes, the Raden version does have a rhodium-plated nib.
Q:
Does this come with a CON-20 or a CON-50?
Asked on Dec 28 2015 by Henry
A:
The Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen comes with a Pilot Con-20 converter.
Q:
I don't know a lot about VPs. Do these come with the converter unit, or does that have to be purchased separately? And is it easy/possible to swap out the nib units? Also, how likely are these to dry out if they're left open (especially with finer nibs)?
Asked on Jan 23 2015 by Ruth
A:
The Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen comes with both one ink cartridge as well as an ink converter. There is no need to purchase one separately.

When you change the ink on the pen you pull the entire nib and feed unit from the pen. The nib itself is not easily removed from the feed but you could easily swap entire nib and feed units from one vanishing point to another.

One of the features of the vanishing point is the retractable nib. This serves the same purpose as a cap on a standard fountain pen so the nib is not left in the open air to dry out. As long as you retract the pen when not in use it should not dry out with regular frequent use.
Q:
Are any of these the rhodium plated or black plated gold nibs that pilot offers or just the original solid gold style?
Asked on Aug 1 2014 by Michael Brown
A:
The Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen in the matte black will come with a black colored nib that matches the pen. The nib is a glossy black. It looks like a very dark grey actually.
