Pilot Vanishing Point Fountain Pen - Black Matte, Broad is rated 4.7742 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pilot Vanishing Point Pen -Black Matte I had been following your video demonstrations and the assorted customer reviews regarding the Pilot Vanishing Point -Black Matte for some time before finally pulling the trigger myself but now my only regret is that it took me this long to purchase this item. The wonderfully practical concept of a retractable nib unit paired with a well designed high quality form, add a matte black finish that is both pleasing to the eye and touch and you have a hands down winner every time. As always , a great customer experience from the Goulet's and all their employees make it a pleasure that will bring back my business time and again. Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like it (and I'm picky) My profession requires attention to detail. Every detail of this pen has been meticulously considered. Feels hefty, well balanced. Understatedly elegant. I appreciate being able to trade out nib sizes (sold separately by Goulet Pens), giving this pen great flexibility and multiplied value. Packaging was super, you can tell these people approach every aspect of their business with passion and care. For example the invoice paper is high quality, which costs more but lets you immediately try out your purchase- plus highlights the personal note written with some nice ink you will now want to buy. Customer service and marketing from the shipping department, I like it! And I'm picky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scratches easily, but EXCELLENT writer. Unfortunately, the black matte finish scratches easily. My pen came with scratches on it, but fortunately Goulet has probably one of the best customer service ever. Sent me a replacement housing right away. Right now, this pen has become my daily writer, love how fine the nib is, but also how smooth it is, despite the fine line it writes. Easily my favorite pen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wonderfully writing pen but i have one dissapointm This pen writes wonderfully and is a joy to use, but the finish has stated to rub off after about a month of use. The finish has all sorts of scuff marks that will not rub away. I have babied this pen and it has spent all it's time in pencil slot in my book bag. Normally it wouldn't be a problem, but it is simply unacceptable for a pen of this price to be so poorly finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ex-Fine Nib... This is the ex-fine nib I've been looking for. Super fine It's perfect for technical notes and small hand writing. I wasn't sure if I was going to dig the clip placement near the nib, but it works for me; provides a nice, tactile area for hand position so I don't even have to look at the pen to get nib orientation correct. If I still used my moleskine notebook, I might be a bit bummed because the ex-fine nib feels scratchy on less-than-smooth paper. However, I'm using a less expensive Clairefontaine clothbound notebook and it's wonderful. Wonderful with Rhodia dotpad too. Oh yea, and the click mechanism is super handy. Regarding the Goulet buying experience: I can't stop purchasing stuff from this website. Everything I've ordered arrives pristine in a few days, packed in a way that the items would survive a bomb blast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A thing of beauty When you love fountain pens, just to hold them, admire the design, write with them, then you know the thrill of holding a new one in your hands. This Black Matte Pilot Capless Fountain Pen is such a thing of beauty. It's my third Pilot and this one writes as phenomenal as the other two. The black mate finish however makes it quite a different pen. This 'stealth' version is so different. Many times I have already been asked about the pen; about its appearance and of course the 'vanishing' of its nib. If you haven't got one already: buy one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VP Matte Black A great little fountain pen. What it doesn't hold in capacity it makes up for with quirk. However, does take a while to get used to the shape, and it is definitely better suited to short periods of writing. I wouldn't write my memoirs with this pen, but I'd use it for the foot notes:D The finish is what sold the pen. That and Brian and Rachel Goulet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good unusual fountain pen This pen significantly differ from other fountain pens - because it is reatracctable. This helps very much while travelling or trying to make some notes on the go. Also I like the matte black "stealth" coloring very much. The nib of this pen is soft and springy. Very good. Thanks for a good product
