I don't have anything new to add that hasn't been said: it looks just a little odd, and works like a dream. Some have a hard time with the clip being down at their fingertips, but for me it is a perfect fit. The clip falls exactly between my fingers and it is almost like a stabilizer when I'm writing. This looks to be my primary workhorse. I got both the fine and the medium nibs so it handles a lot of my needs. I have a fine point Faber-Castell which is somewhere between the two Pilot nibs and between the three it takes care of most of what I write. I love this pen.

My first mid-range pen and, for a student, it is wonderful. The click lets me avoid twisting a cap on and off throughout lectures. The blue-carbonesque is lovely too.

This is the perfect pen to carry in a shirt pocket and use throughout the work day. A fine nib works well on copy paper, and you don't have to keep up with a cap.

I ordered the Stormtrooper color On a Medium nib, and unfortunately didn’t have a good experience. The pen hard started and skipped like crazy and had to be sent back. When the pen wrote, it was phenomenal, but I decided to just return it and go for something else. A pen over $100 shouldn’t have QC issues. The Pilot Metro is consistently wonderful for 1/10th the price. I wish there were more options for retractable nib FP’s out there.

Love the matte finish. The nib writes smoothly. It feels balanced in my hand. The clicking sound is very satisfying.

My only issue is the location of the clip. I find it gets in the way when I am writing. It takes getting used to.

I bought a Black Carbonesque VP (F) because I wanted to try a gold nib pen for a change, and it was an affordable option; and the retractable nib mechanism fascinated me enough (no caps to bother with!) that I was willing to risk of the clip being uncomfortable. Well, guess what? It's not uncomfortable! The way I hold my pen, my thumb barely touches one edge of the clip; but even if one is the sort to position one's finger and thumb together, the top of the clip is quite flat and shouldn't get in the way too much. And it writes beautifully - so smooth you can barely feel the nib. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

I should perhaps mention that the pen is somewhat chubbier and heavier than I'd expected from the stock photo, but not so much that it detracts from the writing experience.

At first I didn't see a reason for this style pen but, after walking around the mall with a purchase in my hand and wanting to write down a note, i realized there is a role to be played with this type of fountain pen. The vanishing point fills that role nicely. It turns officer workers heads when you use it giving an opportunity to show fountain pens are still relevant and provide personality in writing. And it is convenient for those times when you just need a quick signature on a receipt.

Handy work-horse. Most everything about it is fantastic. Only nit-pick, is that ink sweats inside of the pen and can be a bit messy to clean. Not enough to keep me from using however.

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.

Pilot Vanishing Point Collection Video



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!
