Customer Reviews

Only Scratches if You're Careless It's amazing. Writes under its own weight. A lot of people are giving bad reviews because it is easily scratched, but just because it has the convenience of a cheap retractable ballpoint doesn't mean you can treat it like one. It's not advertised as scratch resistant so there's no reason for anyone in their right mind to expect that the finish won't get scratched by harder things. It is still a fine writing instrument and must be treated as such. That means being mindful enough to put it in a dedicated pocket or case so it won't get scratched by your keys. If you want a pen you can throw around and not worry about scratches, spend 5 on a BIc, don't spend $150 on this. 5Upside Down Design is no problem I have used inexpensive Pilot fountain pens for years. They are sturdy, easy to hold, and write well. I have never had one fail; but I do tend to leave them behind at restaurants or forget to retrieve them from people who have borrowed them "just for a second."When I saw a listing for this product I thought it was unique enough to give it a try. I'm very happy I did. The design of the pen is upside down; that is when in my shirt pocket the nib (nestled within the body of the pen) faces up. Once I got the hang of that, it was an issue holding the pen (I'm left-handed) so that the nib was facing the page while the clip was out of the way.The reality is: The designers thought of this and, while I don't know how it works for righties; for lefties it is just fine.The additional cost is well worth it. The tiny nib writes far more easily than the budget Pilot, the mechanism hiding the nib works smoothly, and it didn't suffer from going with me on an airplane.If I didn't own this pen, I would order one today. 5The Most Sophisticated Guy in the Army There is a part in the Army uniform on the left arm that allows you to put pens in. While people will debate that you can only pens of certain clip color, once they see me pull this beauty, the conversation instantly changes entirely."Wow, that's quite a fancy pen," "you're one high speed guy," and "are you writing the next great novel?" are just some of the responses you might hear while carrying and using this pen in the military.The device itself writes absolutely brilliantly.Even in fine, you have smooth wet lines (I used Pilot Iroshizuku ink) that express lines with enough give to make you write for hours. Remember this is a fountain pen and has the same shortcomings such as taking a little bit of time to dry for example. The great design of the pen however allows you to have the convenience of conventional retractable pens.The pen is priced at a steal as I would price this pen based on its qualities much higher. If you have never owned a fountain pen, this is a great place to start as your first. If you have more than 7 fountain pens, the unique design and convenience that this pen offers you at the price point makes me wonder why you haven't already bought it. 5Great retractable fountain, though the matte black scratches. Overall, I really like this pen and after committing to using quality paper, it is my every day writer. I've had mine for almost three years and am looking to purchase another one. Wear issues/scratches with the matte black barrel is the only con.Pros:-The stock nibs are excellent (I've used the extra fine and medium and have settled on the medium).-The balance and size (for my hand) is great.-The convenience of no cap makes this versatile for intermittent use (taking notes for example).-Griping around the clip does not bother me and actually serves as a tactile indication of orientation. (I'm often annoyed by the lack of this indication in most capped fountain pens as there typically is axial symmetry in the grip area, though the nib requires a particular orientation.) I concede that this is a matter of how you grip your pen and address a writing surface, so if you're unsure you should really try one.-I have not had issues with the pen drying out, nor have I had any issues with filling/cleaning.-I have not had leak nor ink on the hands issues. (I should note that the "trap door" does rub on the nib and this seems to smear some ink around the nib itself and the "door". These parts are recessed within end of the pen so any "mess" is contained and not touched with normal handling (excluding of course the nib, but you'd expect that to have ink on it right?). If you're bothered just knowing there's a "mess" in there, then you might not want this pen; but then again there's a little vile of ink sloshing around in all fountains so fountain pens might just not be your thing.)Con:-I suggest avoiding the matte black barrel option. Though I really like the low key look of the matte black, I've had wear issues. The finish appears to be very "soft" and scratches easily. (See photo.) Admittedly, the photo shows wear after three years of regular carry and use, but it is not as though I leave the pen in my pocket with my keys. Thus the -1 star and my perusing for the next most subtle color option that has a gloss finish. (I'm guessing that the gloss finish will wear better.) 4Just the tip... There's really no doubt that this is a wonderful pen. It's weighty and smooth, and that disappearing feature is fantastic! I don't have to worry about the cap popping off in my pocket!At least, that's what I thought. Apparently the tip to which the clip is attached is in fact detachable. I didn't know this and I don't think it's actually supposed to come off. But it did. While it was clipped in my pocket. And the tip fell somewhere without my noticing and is now gone forever!Without the tip the pen still writes, but it's very awkward and looks odd. Unfortunately this happened only last week, after I'd owned the pen for two months and it is now too late to return it. And I bought it brand new from Amazon, so while I don't think this is a manufacturing defect I know it's not the result of overuse.Those of you interested in buying the Vanishing Point, I'd still recommend the pen as it's really wonderful to use. But keep your eye on that end-piece! Losing it kind of ruins the whole look and feel of the pen. 3Overall this pen is easy on the eyes This review is for the Pilot Vanishing Point (Medium) Matte Black I ordered in January 2018 - product description:Pilot Vanishing Point Collection Retractable Fountain Pen, Matte Black Barrel, Blue Ink, Medium Nib (60581). Overall this pen is easy on the eyes. It's a sexy, sleek and modern. It has turned out to be one of my smoothest writers, right out of the box, and as many have said before me, quite practical for general writing purposes. Because of that, I automatically reach for this pen first now.One thing that I will note, and maybe my eyes are just playing tricks on me is that the nib appears to be coated to be dark and match the overall look of the pen. The pictures associated with the black matte pen seem to show a regular (non coated) nib. I might have to order one of the ones that that specifically say: 18-karat gold nib with black-ion coating coordinates with pen accents to compare. The description for the matte black one just says: 18-karat gold rhodium-plated nib. Mine actually appears 'dark' and not like the picture which is 'light'.See pictures. 5Absolute must have for fountain pen lovers If I could give it more stars I would. I had avoided Pilot pens because of their proprietary refills. But the vanishing point is worth the extra hassle. This has become my chief fountain pen and not only does it functionally work fantastic as a "clicker", it writes fabulous and the inverted position insures no ink spills. I'd double up the stars on it if I could. 5Great pen for fountain pen enthusiasts or those looking to get into fountain pens. The convenience of this pen is nothing I'd have ever imagined from a fountain pen. As an owner of several high-end fountain pens that cost hundreds of dollars more than this pen, I'd have to say this pen is approaching the status of "favorite" among my collection. As a writer, I often jot down personal notes even as I'm at my computer. This pen eliminates the steps that I've been taking in the past to unscrew the cap, place the cap, position the pen, etc. The clip, though right in the middle of the tripod of fingers for writing, acts as a guide for finger placement as to where the point of the nib will be. There's no more need to rotate the pen in your hand to get the correct writing angle as the clip helps to remind and position your hand for you. I'd actually say that this would be a great starter pen for anyone interested in the art of writing with a fountain pen.Typically when using a fountain pen, I grip the pen closer to the nib than maybe I'd ought to leaving the tell-tale signs of writing stained on my fingers. With this pen, there's no chance of ink stain because the nib is shielded from any grip mishaps. Though the ink sac is small, I find that it is enough to take several pages of notes over the course of about two-three days. Part of owning a fountain pen is the small joy of refilling it. I haven't tried using the cartridge that came with it as I prefer to draw my ink from a bottle.The quality of the pen seems to be pretty nice. Though the barrel doesn't exactly feel high-end, it is definitely sturdy and well made. The nib is firm but with enough flex. Some reviews that I've read about this pen made it seem that if you've got a firm hand when writing this pen might not be for you. I don't think that I accurate. Granted I don't try to poke holes in the pages when I write, I do find that this pen is firm enough for just about any type of handwriting style. I have not had any slips or dry spots on the page either even when writing softer or more firmly than I normally would.I would buy this pen again. 5SO close! I really love everything about this pen. Great nib. Flow is perfect. Slightest flex. Awesome action. Practical. Good balance. The matte black looks good, BUT here's where the fifth star goes! In a relatively short period of daily use (18 hrs/day in person) the finish us shot. Disappointing? Not REALLY 'cause I'm not easy on it, but for the money, I thought it would have survived better.I have $20 black Cross pens for years showing less wear.Rest is awesome. I'd buy another one w/out hesitation. 4unexpected feedback I really appreciate the unique one-handed retractable click design of this Pilot VP pen for on-the-go note taking. This pen is well made with substantial weight and balance. The clip placement is easily adaptable and acts as a subtle guide for proper nib alignment w/o having to look. The SU (stub) 18k nib, however, writes like a nail on Rhodia 80g paper (less one star). There is a considerable amount of feedback that I wasn't expecting in a gold nib. I have since purchased an extra nib unit in FINE that I also find somewhat toothy. I may use a 12000 grit micro-mesh sheet to smooth out the nibs if they don't work themselves out with further use. All in all, a very convenient design and a definite keeper in my meager collection.Note: the newer CON-40 converter was included :D 4
