Pilot Vanishing Point Fountain Pen - Black/Rhodium, Extra-Fine is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious. I got the extra-fine nib and it is indeed extra-fine. Despite this, it is quite smooth. Most impressive of all, the ink flow (using cartridges) is perfectly consistent and reliable. It has never skipped on me, not even once. That being said, I do not recommend the extra-fine nib unless you have a light hand and enjoy very fine lines. So, functionally it is a great pen. That being said, this pen combines function and aesthetics very nicely. The clip looks good and doesn't get in your when whilst writing. The trim is finished very nicely and the attention to detail is quite impressive for a relatively inexpensive pen. Overall this pen is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pilot retractable nib fountain pen Have been thinking about one of these pens for some time, and the price was right (or I was finally ready to make a decision). In any case, I purchased the brown with rhodium trim and with a gold Fine nib. Superb is the only comment. The service from Goulet in getting my pen was excellent (as always), and the pen writes with a very smooth, fine line on almost any paper. The nib is quite stiff, so don't expect any flexibile writing with it. Am thinking about one of the wider nibs as well -- price is certainly right. Highly recommend the pen and of course Goulet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more durable than the Matte Black I got this as a replacement for my matte black, and the finish on this is MUCH better and durable. Still like the look of the matte black more though =P

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fountain pen I've wanted a retractable fountain pen (for the convenience of such) since High School but did not know these existed until about a month ago, in spite of the fact that they have been made for the last 50+ years. I bought the extra fine, and extra fine it is. Writes wonderfully, if a little scratchy but you'd expect that from an extra fine nib. I have been using the cartridges and love the ink. It starts instantly every time I click and put pen to paper. It puts out a very consistent amount of ink, whether I am writing slowly and deliberately or zipping off a rushed note for later. I don't seem to be able to move the pen fast enough to starve the tip of ink, yet it is never wet. Very comfortable to write with, in spite of the clip being 'right there'. Took me all of 5 minutes to get used to that. Truly a great fountain pen with the added convenience of retractability...a win-win for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vanishing point fountain pen I have had a number of vanishing point fountain pens and like the conveinance of having a capless fountain pen. previously, i was limited to a fine point. Now available in extra fine. I get the nice feel of the fountain I've always enjoyed with the finer line I like. Great pen, highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pen and a cool design The build quality and the look is fantastic. It takes a little while to get used to the clip being on the same end that you're gripping, but don't let that stop you. The delivery was quick and the personal touch made a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On Line Purchase Delivered on time and in perfect order by USPS within 10 days. Probably the most practical pen for the tropical environment. Now that it has bedded in, it writes just the way I want it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ability to use with one hand - taking notes on the go is so easy!! I have replaced my usual Cross ballpoint pen with the Vanishing point and use it everyday. It doesn't leak and I love the feedback from the extra fine nib. Completely versatile, tactile and a joy to use.
