Pilot Vanishing Point Fountain Pen - Black Matte, Fine is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect every day carry The first thing you'll notice about this pen is the build quality. It has an exceptional fit an finish that isn't often mentioned in the reviews I have read. In terms of the hand position and the clip, I don't find it to be disruptive. It will depend on your individual writing styles. It's really the perfect fountain pen to take to work or school. It doesn't leak and you don't have to deal with unscrewing and rescrewing the cap to use. It has the perfect blend of ballpoint practicality with a fountain pen writing experience. The nib is great right out of the box, and to me didn't need any tinkering. The fine is probably comparable to the pilot metropolitan medium to my eyes at least. I have attached a picture so you can get a size reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pen and great customer service I'd been looking at this one for awhile and after waffling between the F and EF nib, posted a general query on the Goulet Pen website. Heard back right away from Jeremy with great info and insight, so I went with the F Nib. Could not have made a better decision. The pen looks awesome and it writes better than any other I've tried. And the customer service was top notch. Received the order very quickly, and you could tell from the packing how seriously they take their customer care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse note-jotting pen The fine-tipped Vanishing Point is the best pen I've ever used for jotting frantically on cheap recycled printer paper. You'll get some feedback from the nib, but I usually prefer a bit of drag to a glassy-smooth nib. It's not a problem. The ink capacity is a bit small, but easily gets me through a full 12 hours of constant quick notes. The clip doesn't get in the way of my grip at all, but it could be an issue, depending on how you hold it. The Goulet Pen Co. is fantastic, and the pen and box arrived in pristine condition, dressed to the nines in bubble wrap and clingy plastic-wrap. The package could have withstood multiple natural disasters. I'm very pleased with my decision to buy this pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite writer ever I am an enormous pen fanatic and have developed quite a collection. Out of deep love for Pilot pens and a curiosity about the Vanishing Point (VP) design, I chose to buy this pen. The medium nibs are just a little too broad for my taste (especially for an ultimately practical writer like this one), so I went with a fine. I chose the black matte finish because it provides a bit more grip than the other VP finishes. I LOVE this pen! I cannot say that boldly enough. It is without a doubt the best writer I have ever used. The nib felt a little toothy when I started writing with it, but the nib quickly relaxed and adjusted to my hand. The quality is amazing - a smooth, fine line with perfect consistency of flow. The nib is of absolutely perfect quality - not stiff by any means, but not really soft either. Noodler's Bad Black Moccasin has been my primary ink for my VP, and it is a pretty amazing combo. I was initially turned off by the clip, but that's actually turned into one of my favorite features of the pen. I know I am always holding the pen at the right angle, with a sturdy grip. It also makes for a slightly more ergonomic grip. This is a solid writer with enormous practical appeal and an incredible gold nib for a very low price. In my mind, there's no question - this is a must-have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First fountain pen - I LOVE it! I was drawn to this pen due to the matte black, very stealth look and I couldn't be happier. I purchased the fine nib and it writes so smooth with Noodler's Black in it. Weight is great in hand, feels very balanced and the clip does not interrupt when writing (which I was concerned about prior to getting). Very happy customer here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Daily Use Pen I have been to a week long seminar with this pen and I really do appreciate the quality of this pen. The ability to very quickly expose the point is especially appreciated. The only problem I see is the small ink capacity. I had to fill her up more than once a day. That alone will not keep me from carrying it every day.
