Pilot Vanishing Point Fountain Pen - Black Matte, Medium is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pen, so super cool. I know that VP's are favorites of many folks. I knew I wanted one someday. When I first saw the Matte Black on a web site, I knew this was the one. When Goulet Pens started carrying Pilot, I decided now was the time. The packaging is so cool. I find the weight and feel perfect for my hand. There are the obvious benefits of just clicking the button instead of having to deal with a cap. I chose the fine nib, which is delightful. I want to get a medium for it at some time in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great...but finish is weak This is one of the best nib i have...very smooth...great writer. This is the pen i carry to job every day. But the problem is the finish. It wears very easily so I can see some brass under the ''paint'' finish - i have just seen it after 2 months of use - but it stays in my front or jacket pocket alone . I have also the black and silver and the pushing knob developed wear lines on it - something inside is scratching. This is the reason why I don't give 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pen Since I own 4 Pilot Fermo Vanishing Points, I was hesitant to purchase this pen, but finally did and I must admit that I like the ease and fastness of the 'click point'. When I want to grab a pen and be fast for a note, etc. this one is the go to pen. It feels great in the hand, so not too have and has great balance; add to it the interchangeable nibs from Pilot and it is a winner. The black matte also feels great to hold and write with. Definitely glad I bought this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I bought the Stealth VP for function over form (I think the VPs are less than pretty) but to my surprise I love using it. My fine nib writes as smooth as glass, the matte black is nicely subdued and feels great in the hand. The clip is almost unnoticed when writing. I'm so pleased by it, I'm going to order a second body and tuck it away, just to have as a backup in case something happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Writes at the Speed of Thought Bought this pen about 6 months ago; and I have not been disappointed. My work requires me to take copious notes, and this pen keeps up. Have not found an ink yet that will cause this pen to stutter, sputter or clog. While not having a window on the cartridge to see the ink level is a disadvantage, I cannot rate the pen lower because of its reliability

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very pleased I'm thrilled with my Pilot Vanishing Point. The workmanship of the pen is in keeping with it's price point, while the retractable nib design is very well executed. The quality of the pen and of the writing experience is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen This is my first real fountain pen, and I just love the way it feels and writes. I would recommend it for beginners for sure. It will make you want to buy more and have more respect for fountain pens.
