Pilot Vanishing Point Raden Stripe

The Pilot Vanishing Point Raden Stripe is a vision of simplicity and beauty. The rich hand-lacquered finish makes the particles of abalone sparkle. Because the abalone is used sparingly and deliberately, the design of the colorful stripes is particularly eye-catching against the black body, like a single cluster of stars against a clear night sky.

Take a close-up look at the array of colors that emanates from the raden.

One of the most innovative writing instruments to be produced, the Vanishing Point is a one-handed fountain pen. The nib is extended and retracted through a ballpoint-type mechanism. This makes it a perfect pen for doctors, lawyers, students, or just anyone who wants the style and writing quality of a fountain pen at a moment's notice.
The Pilot Vanishing Point is a cartridge-converter pen - it can be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use Pilot-Namiki brand ink cartridges.

The rhodium trim acts as a horizon line. The raden rectangles, stacked one on top of the other, mirror, top and bottom, the way calm water reflects what is above. Adding to this effect, the refractions from the raden intensifies the effect, changing color as the pen is rotated. This pen has to be held in the hand to be fully experienced. Notice how the raden in the lower right of this image seems to disappear. It comes alive with color when the pen is turned a few degrees.

The Pilot Vanishing Point Raden Stripe fountain pen is available with your choice of rhodium-plated 18k nib unit. Extra nib units with converters are available and easily interchangeable in this beautiful and functional pen. Vanishing Point nib units are well-suited to customizations including Cursive Italic or Left Oblique - see our nib customizations page for more information.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
