Contemporary black matte finish is the perfect combination of luxury and technology. 18-carat gold rhodium-plated nib, brass barrel and body. Engrave the barrel for a perfect gift. Refillable with Iroshizuku bottled inks and Converter 20/50 or disposable IC-50 cartridges. If you are not familiar with the Vanishing Point (known sometimes as the Capless), it is unlike other fountain pens, in that the pen has no cap.This is surprisingly comfortable and allows you to orient the pen very quickly. The lack of a cap and the clicky top allow you to start the pen one-handed. I have been using these pens for years and found that they are better than most fountain pens at keeping the ink wet with only intermittent usage. This matte black version is a very cool-looking pen.
With the nib retracted,'even the white bits are black'. Pilot's advice notwithstanding, you can fill it with any fountain pen ink you like.
And you can fill empty cartridges with your own ink if you prefer, as they hold more than the converter. As the pictures show, the Converter and the metal converter sleeve are included in the box. You can use other Pilot ink cartridges in this pen, except for the Pilot Parallel Pen ones, which have special ink.Don't know what yet, something interesting. The nib is solid 18 carat gold with Rhodium plating. I have a number of these pens and without exception, they write butter smooth. This one has a Fine nib. The box does not contain a booklet or instruction sheet from Pilot and I don't think it ever did. My recollection from my other pens is that when there was one, it wasn't that good.
Fortunately, there are many online videos about using this pen and I will also provide a few notes with the box.
