With a simple push button device, the nib withdraws into the body of the pen, closing an air-tight seal behind it to stop it from drying out.
With an 18 carat gold nib and rhodium plated trim, this pen is weighted beautifully so it feels comfortable in the hand. This is not only a stylish design to look at, it is also an innovative design to use. Comes in a gorgeous gift box with an ink cartridge and a converter.

- A great writing experience Review by Cameron
The Pilot Capless / Vanishing Point is one of my favourite modern fountain pens. The retractable nib makes it great for when you need to jot down a quick note - I love that clicking noise - and the writing experience is smooth. The placement of the clip at the top of the pen, as their is no cap to remove, gets in the way for some depending on their grip; I've never had a problem nor do most others
NOTE: Japanese nibs (Inc. Pilot) tend to be finer than Western nibs - eg. a medium is closer to a fine, a fine to an extra-fine. (Posted on 13/11/2015)
