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 bought this VP as a gift for my husband. He likes the masculine look of the matte finish that I purchased. As with every VP we own (6?), it is great quality and writes like a dream.

First...I have had my eye on a Vanishing Point for sometime since I started into fountain pens. The idea of a retractable nib was an awesome thought. Not having to worry about my nib being bumped, drying out, or sitting on the page and have the ink sucked right out of my pen onto the page, if I didn't recap immediately. I'm not lazy but the recapping of pens is not what seems intuitive. Having to retrieve the cap as it rolls right off the desk and out of sight, then needing to climb on the floor and search for it, is not what is enjoyable. Having been born into the era where a click pen was the norm, the Vanishing Point was a great thought.

Second...I also am not the fancy type so the matte black had me from first sight. I really like my fountain pens, but again I do not seek the lime-light when out and about and using my pens. The matte black just seems so unassuming, which I like. For me it just blends in.

Third...When I finally decided to go for this one, I of course hunted around for a deal. I'm a bit on the frugal side. I hunted and found a deal at of all places Target Online. I thought about it and figured to give a try to Pen Chalet because during my search they had a banner that said they would price match. Target is an okay store, but I really don't think they handle many fountain pens and I didn't think they would be able to handle any fountain pen related issues or questions that may arise from my purchasing from the Target store. So I contacted Pen Chalet and to my surprise they really came through and handled the whole transaction with flying colors. Pleasant, kind, and when I spoke to a young lady about the purchase from Pen Chalet, she was very knowledgeable and kind. She even had her own experiences with a Vanishing Point and that reassured me that my decision to purchase from Pen Chalet was the right option. I have used other fountain pen online retailers and would have used them, but Pen Chalet boldly displayed their price matching banner and that was what appealed to me.

Follow-up...I have been using my Matte Black Vanishing Point with an extra fine nib using Noodler's Blue, daily for about a month now and I am very delighted I made the purchase. Smooth writer, plenty of ink flow, not at all uncomfortable as one would expect with the clip in such a position. The ease of just extending my thumb slightly upward over the retractable button, is easier than I thought. It reacts just like the click pens we've all used. Smooth action and the nib exiting and retracting back into that barrel is easy. I also like that the form of the pen keeps the nib off of my paper if I lay it down without retracting it. So no ink loss from the paper wicking it out of my pen. Also laying the pen down I can rest assured that it will not roll off the desk, the clip does the trick.

Bottom line... Pen Chalet handled my price match with no problem, my transaction with no problem, they were professional, kind, and pleasant. The Vanishing Point is proving to be one of my daily go to pens, I had been using a Lamy 2000 daily. So as you can see I am very satisfied in my new go to pen!

Received my stormtrooper VP the other day, and honestly every time I see it, I *have* to pick it up and click it. Its positively addicting. The medium nib is smooth, even on rough paper that my fines/extra fines are a bit scratchy on. The ink flow is just a bit bit wet, which makes it a little bit bolder of a line than I was expecting, but its quickly becoming a favorite in my modest collection!

Think I have finally found my favorite daily carry. I purchased the Black Matte Vanishing Point in a fine gold nib. This is my second Pilot Vanishing Point, the first has a medium nib which writes quite wet and wide. I find the fine writes like a wet somewhat narrow medium in any other pen. It’s perfect. The mechanism is flawless, the nib is butter smooth on paper and easy to use. I prefer it to my Platinum 3776 for everyday writing, although that too is a wonderful pen. The one I have gives a bit more scratchy feedback on paper compared to the Vanishing Point. The fullness of the Black Matte barrel adds comfort for my hand. I purchased both Vanishing Points on sale at Pen Chalet and am very grateful and pleased. Excellent service and terrific pens.

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.
