Carbon fiber is one of the toughest materials
of the space age. We have not tried this, but suspect this pen
would withstand being run over by a truck. It is definitely
a stub nib right away for this pen. The medium point
makes a medium to fine stub that seems completely appropriate.
See the writing sample below.
This stub tip is smoother than
an italic, while still showing some variation between
the horizontal and vertical strokes. The italic
is crisper, with thinner cross lines. It sacrifices
some smoothness, though, for more line width variation.
Any of these pens is available with a extra fine, fine, medium or broad nib. These nibs can be customized to stub, italic or oblique styles
for $55 extra. The retail price for a Pilot Vanishing Point
pen is $175. Our price: $140.00
We feel these pens are perfect candidates for a Left Oblique
modification but work equally well as Stubs or cursive italics.
