New Pilot (Namiki) Vanishing Point (Capless) Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Filed under: Pens — Rob @ 5:31 pm

It’s “Ice Blue” in color, comes with an 18k gold medium nib (only) and has just been released for sale. Only 2,000 are available worldwide.

They retail for $200 but I’ve seen them for $150. In 2-3 years they’ll go for $400-$500. Yeah, I know I don’t need one but I really want one. Sort of.

  1. I guess it was ineveitable. I got one for myself for Christmas. So that makes five Vanishing Points in which to keep the ink flowing, which, as it turns out, is a hard thing to do. Most writing at work gets done with a cheap (but excellent) plastic Pilot G2 07 gel-type ballpoint pen. So it’s not unusual to whip out a VP only to find the pen’s ink feed dried up. It then takes a bit of shaking and gentle ink-less scribbling to get the flow going again. So, more fountain pens can equal a bit more frustration.

    You’d think I’d know by now that less is more.
