Bottom Shelf: This pen has been gently used, but is otherwise in great shape. While every effort to clean these pens is made, as they are not brand new, you might see residual ink or water. All Bottom Shelf sales are final.

The 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 18k gold nib effortlessly for a truly luxurious fountain pen writing experience.

The black matte barrel has elegant matte black accents and a striking red stripe, reminiscent of classical race cars, which accentuates the twist mechanism.

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. To extend the nib, push the knob in or gently twist the knob counter-clockwise. To retract the nib back into the pen barrel, gently push/twist the knob in a clockwise direction.

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. Vanishing Point LS uses the same replacement nib unit as the other Vanishing Point models.
