About the Pilot Vanishing Point Collection

The Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen has a unique retractable nib instead of a cap. With the click of a button the nib extends or retracts inside the body of the pen.

Each Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen comes with an 18k gold nib in either gold, rhodium-plated or ruthenium-plated to match the color of the trim.

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 read online reviews that said the stub nib was scratchy, so I called Pen Chalet ahead of time to ask if this was the case. They told me that it was like a hot knife through butter, so I went ahead and purchased the Vanishing Point with the stub nib. When I received it I tried it a few times by just dipping the nib in the ink, as they advised; and I thought it was a pretty far cry from a hot knife through butter, but that it would be okay. But as you know it's often hard to get a real feel for a nib without writing with it for a good while. After a few weeks, the scratchy feel of the nib, though slight, is bothering me more and more. I suppose I will have to purchase a loop, some brass shims, some micromesh, etc., etc., to get the nib to feel truly smooth. This annoys the hell out of me because I think it is a reasonable expectation for a premium pen to perform well right out of the box, the way my other fountain pens do. Also, for a premium pen I expected the finish and design to be a little finer. When you look at where the colored barrel meets the metal at either end of the pen, they are not flush. They do not connect smoothly; there is a bump from the metal to the colored barrel because the latter is abruply fatter or bigger in diameter. I am sticking with it because I don't see alternatives in a retractable fountain pen that appeal to me.

Lovely, very smooth nib. The click is very satisfying, but I'm careful not to click the mechanism unnecessarily, because ink comes out of the breather hole if the pen is clicked too aggressively or rapidly.

This Vanishing Point is now my best pen. The overall quality, fit, finish, and the cool factor are everything I expected and read about before I bought it. The gold on red color scheme was the right choice, too. It's gorgeous. Amazing how long this product has been on the market. And of course - the nib and the writing experience are sublime! I love pens, and this is a truly enjoyable experience, just owning it, and most definitely writing with it.

Beautiful pen to look at and to write with. Quickly becoming one of my favorites to use everyday. The pen sits beautifully in your hand and the nib and ink just glide across the page.

Solid, beautiful mechanism. I bought the Stub, which is the preferred width. Turned out it is scratchy, everyone seems to know this. Will need to get a custom grind to smooth it. I Still love the VP, the feel, the weight. Don't know why they made the Stub scratchy, but I still love it. Some say it has factory oils, but I think it needs a grind

I definitely wouldn't want to buy this pen from anywhere other than Pen Chalet. I had a lot of issues with the nib units but their 100% satisfaction guarantee really exists and customer service is great. The clicking mechanism makes this pen easy to use as an EDC. The pen design makes it very functional but the writing experience just isn't as nice as some similarly priced pens (like the Lamy 2000).

Love my Vanishing Point. It right smooth and beautiful I have no problem with the inflow the weight of the pan tells how well-made it is it’s not heavy and it’s not light it’s in between but it’s strong and beautiful. I purchased the blue matte and I have received so many compliments from it. I carry it on my travelers notebook which is my wallet as well ,I’ drop it in my purse and I go. I need it to work with me and I don’t baby it. And it has held up.

This was my first gold nib and I waited years to try it out. It was my most expensive pen purchase to date and finally, on almost a whim I pulled the trigger. I'm so glad I did! It's an excellent pen and one of my favorite's to write with. Once you get yourself over the hurdle of crossing that price point, I feel you'll be pleasantly surprised; I know I was.

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.
