Pilot Matte Black Vanishing Point
Once I began exploring water feature pens the Pilot Vanishing aim emerged repeatedly. There were tonnes of reviews all singing the praises for this fountain pen. However there clearly was always one thing that bugged me personally about any of it water feature pen and that had been the position of the clip. To me it looked like it will be in how and I also cannot know the way i'd produce with-it in that position. So for a long period this place me off. But the Vanishing Point kept haunting me, there were even more reviews, and mentions on the Pen Addict podcast thus I caved and snapped one-up from Pen Chalet.
It took me many years to select a color. We flitted involving the tangerine, blue, green and grey but I finally chosen the Matte Black (ends up this isn't a color for post pictures). It had been a little different to the first options but I was thinking i'd try using a thing that looks subtle.
The Vanishing aim is actually slightly different when it comes to set up given that nib is retractable. The below photo shows the establish (excuse the inky nib). The set-up is extremely dissimilar to any other water fountain pen I possess. Whenever I very first inked the pen up I became shocked in the size of the nib. This really is tiny and incredibly very slim. The ink is filled through a piston filler and is held into the silver portion of the pen. I've been making use of my Vanishing aim day-after-day for a couple days so far my ink has actually lasted really.
