Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point Fountain Pen

The Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point fountain pen is a retractable nib fountain pen, the model that all other retractable nib fountain pens are compared to. It is a capless pen with the nib retraction the means by which the ink doesn’t dry out.

Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point Fountain Pen

This is a sleek looking fountain pen with a classical shape. Some might find it to be a little on the short side because there is no cap to post but the balance is very good.

The button at the end of the pen requires a firm push to engage the nib which ensures that it is unlikely to be accidentally pushed. The solid click as it works the nib mechanism is reassuring and leaves you in no doubt that it has been worked.

An immediately noticeable thing that is unusual about this pen is that it appears to write upside down because the clip is located at the nib end of the pen. Some may believe that this would make it awkward to hold and to write with but this is not the case. If you grip the pen with a standard grip you will barely even notice the clip and should find it a comfortable spot for the index finger.

The pen is available in a range of colors and finishes including matte black, black, blue, dark red, green, silver and gold/yellow. Look for versions with rhodium silver or gold trims. The matte black pens are distinct from the others with no highlighted accents.

You can expect the pen to write immediately every time you engage the nib. It is comfortable in the hand and the type of pen that should quickly become the everyday writer in your arsenal.

The convenience of quickly clicking the pen to prepare it for use is a great bonus and the pen can be operated single-handedly. The nibs can easily be changed to suit your preferences without having to worry about degrading the performance of any of the moving parts.
