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!

Very happy with this. It writes great. Smooth and rich flow. The blue with gold trim very good looking. I thought I might have a problem writing with the
Clip but no issue at all. Great price on a
Gold nib.

I ordered a Vanishing Point in Blue Carbonesque with F nib (I guess I would prefer M nib more, F is a bit too fine for me). The customised engraving is gorgeous.

Nib was a bit scratchy out of box. Flushed several times and switched inks and it got better. Pen Chalet customer service (via email) is amazing.

I'm a big Pilot fan, and the Vanishing Point has only reinforced my appreciation for them. Mine is the Blue/Rhodium model with a medium nib. The quality is what I expect from Pilot - the pen feels very solid in the hand, and the 18k gold nib is...well, I've never used a nib quite like this one. This is a wet medium that, to my eye, leans a bit more toward the Western than the Japanese width. The astonishing thing about it is its absurd smoothness. Write with minimal pressure and a wet ink, and this thing will float across the page. Feedback is extremely minimal. (In fact, my nib is so smooth it "sings.") Combine the glassy-smooth nib with the VP's famous nib-retracting mechanism, and what you get is an absolute note-taking machine.

Beyond the practical, there's the aesthetic. The blue is more navy than I expected, but it's still sharp and classy, especially with the silver trim and rhodium-plated nib. The body is solid brass, and this is a fairly heavy pen, but if you're using it mostly for occasional notes, that shouldn't cause any strain. The clip looks good, works well, and gives me no problems while writing.

As to value, this is a premium pen whose premium price actually makes some degree of sense. It's a practical, serious, professional pen that's easy to use and has an excellent nib to boot.

(In all fairness, one small downside to it is the difficulty of filling it with a CON-40. I recommend using Pilot cartridges or refilling those same cartridges if you want more than a small fill. I'm fine with frequent fills and color changes, though, so the CON-40 works fine for me.)

A great mid-level fountain pen. Gold nib is smooth with a little bit of bounce, no flex. Great mechanisms for a fountain pen with the convenience of a ballpoint. Vanishing point/cap less for someone that likes a larger diameter pen. For people with smaller hands try the Pilot Decimo. Same functionality with a smaller diameter barrel. The carbonesque finish is my favorite of the affordable ones. Very collectible.

VPs are always great additions to a collection. The gold nib is soft enough to provide a smooth writing experience but stiff enough to not bend under the pressure. They keep up with my speed-notes and the different colors make it easy to keep notes organized.

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.
