Introduced in 1964 Pilot's innovative Vanishing Point fountain pen has become a writing instrument icon. Originally marketed as the "Capless," with a twist-retractable nib action, it was followed by a "knock-on" model in 1965. The Vanishing Point mimics this model and features a click-style retractable nib. This writing instrument comes with a Pilot converter and a Pilot cartridge. Its nib is 18 carat gold.
