There was nothing to indicate the fact but the white hand of the tiny gauge on the board before him.
Packaging The VP arrived in a black leather box with silver trim. The top is printed with "Namiki" and it is simple overall. The inside has Namiki in gold screen on the top lid, with a satiny cream material.
The pen is held by a strap on to the removable plastic tray. Underneath is a user and care guide, as well as a warranty card. There is also an ink cartridge in there - that I only just discovered! The case is decent and sturdy, and will certainly protect the pen should I ever relinquish it from my pencil case for storage.
Although I really would have preferred the wicked packaging that the matte black VP comes in Why did I just get a box? But very gorgeous pen. The Pen The Vanishing Point fountain pen has a modern design that differs from the classic capped fountain pens in that it is retractable.
The body is torpedo shaped on both ends with the clip at the nib end, which is unusual for a fountain pen! The body is very durable and has held up just fine to normal use. The pen is not very small, but is by no means a monster like the Pelikan M I reviewed awhile ago.
The raden has rhodium accents and a black body. The gorgeous color that speckles the darkness is bits of abalone shell fragments that are placed by hand. The pen is then hand-lacquered, resulting in a seductive finish.
It seduced me, okay?. Lower exposure to higher. You can see the varying bits of shell changing! Roly poly pretty penny.
As mentioned, the nib end also has the clip attached to it. The clip works very well! It is smooth to slip on to a stack of paper, and it holds very snugly. I am very attracted to shiny things well I found it on sale at Isellpens and then I really had no other option but to get it.
As noted by another reviewerthe pen is not cool to the touch. The VP has a skinny mini little 18K gold nib and is available in fine, medium, and broad. Being a Japanese pen, the medium nib I got is in fact a little smaller than the Pelikan M fine nib.
The nib actually makes up the entire inside of the pen - including the twist converter. This pen can also take cartridges. The nib is slightly springy because of the gold, making it a lot of fun to write with, and giving a very smooth writing experience. The nice thing is you can get replacement nib sectionsso you can have different nib sizes without having to buy another pen - although this is somewhat of a shame, what with so many colors available The first fill was with J.
At first, it wrote very well with lots of lovely shading and I was really excited. Why is this stupid pen not working!
Well, either the ink was drying up, or it was just too dry to flow in general. I refilled the pen with Mont Blanc Lavender Purple ink and it wrote quite wonderfully for a line or two I could write a line or two and it would run dry, as though there was no ink in it at all.
Last pick of ink: It wrote wonderfully for a full paragraph before it started feeling a little more dry. It skipped a few times, but not terribly. Note how the ink changes based on going from wet to dry writing.
This might irritate some people if they have to keep refilling. Once I got it going, the pen was a pleasure to write with.Home > Crane & Co. Stationery > Letter Writing Stationery Default sorting Sort by popularity Sort by newness Sort by price: low to high Sort by price: high to low Add to cart.

The Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen is a product rich in both history and performance. The Cold Equations appeared in the August issue of Astounding Science Fiction. I can do no better than John Campbell’s original preface to this story: “The Frontier is a strange place – and a frontier is not always easy to recognize.
It may lie on the other side of a simple door marked ‘No admittance’ – but it is always deadly dangerous.” — ed, N.E. Lilly. Featuring smooth 14k gold nibs and retractable click mechanisms, Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pens offer a unique combination of luxury and convenience.
