Vanishing Point is the world’s first and favorite family of luxury retractable fountain pens. The Vanishing Point LS features a completely innovative and advanced design technology with a seamless “Click & Twist” mechanism that retracts the 18kt gold nib effortlessly for a truly luxurious fountain pen writing experience. The black barrel with rhodium accents has a stylized middle ring featuring a stunning diagonal turbine pattern, which is a distinctive, new feature exclusively for the Vanishing Point LS.
The fountain pen nib retracts seamlessly and smoothly with either the push of the top button or with a gentle twist on the top of the pen to the right. Pilot's patented design allows the nib to retract fully into the barrel when not in use, making this marvel of a fountain pen engineering a smooth writing, luxury fountain pen easily portable to take with you wherever you go.
Each Vanishing Point LS fountain pen is beautifully merchandised in an elegant gift box. A Pilot CON-40 converter is included with this pen, as well as a blue Pilot ink cartridge. A metal cartridge cap is also included for use with the ink cartridge. The Vanishing Point LS uses the same replacement nib unit as the other Vanishing Point models.
