Revolutionary in its origin, unmatched even today, the Vanishing Point fountain pen by Pilot was the first retractable fountain pen on the market. Originally created in 1963, the Vanishing Point has been reimagined over the years with both twist and click retracting mechanisms and a variety of barrel and nib sizes and finishes.
Innovation in design sets the Vanishing Point in a class of its own. It's expertly fashioned with numerous individual parts, most of which are assembled by hand. Crafted with solution-based features such as a special trap door to prevent the nip from drying out, the Vanishing Point is carefully constructed for lasting dependability and superior writing performance.
Vanishing Point pens are offered in an array of sophisticated finishes and nib sizes. Choose your ideal barrel look from solid colors and subtle patterns to luxurious embellishments including inlaid Raden (mother-of-pearl) accents and traditional Maki-e hand-painted designs. In addition, every year a limited edition barrel color is introduced. To commemorate special company anniversaries, highly collectable limited editions are released.
The Vanishing Point fountain pen can be filled either with the included pre-filled blue ink cartridge or using the included converter with your favorite fountain pen ink. Pilot recommends using Namiki ink cartridges or Iroshizuku Bottled Fountain Pen ink with your Vanishing Point pen for an exceptional writing experience.
