Pre-Owned Pens: 2298: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point
Namiki...eventually, Pilot...Vanishing Point "click" fountain pens have taken the world by storm. They are among the most popular selling pens year after year. This is a very early Namiki Vanishing Point fountain pen. Twelve-sided and light weight, these early models are in high demand. It has no cracks or deep scars, but it has a fair degree of shallow surface wear. Nobody will see it at regular writing distance, but if you hold it close under a light, you'll see it. It comes with an original squeeze bar convert that still works well. However, it can use modern Pilot converters and cartridges. Its 14k gold nib is a rare one marked "B" for broad...although it writes a nice, smooth European medium line. 13.6cm.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2321: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point
In our humble opinion, one of the coolest fountain pen innovations in recent decades was the clickable Namiki/Pilot Vanishing Point. Click it like a ballpoint to reveal the nib, which is internally capped to keep it from drying out easily. It uses proprietary cartridges and converters. This black Carbonesque Pilot Vanishing point comes complete with its converter and cartridge cap, box and papers. This one was heavily used in rotation, but you wouldn't notice to look at it. Only light wear around where the nib comes out of the pen. The 14k gold nib is marked as fine, but it is a Japanese fine that is closer to extra-fine. To us, most fine and extra-fine nibs feel just a little scratchy, and this is no different. 14cm.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1984: Namiki Pilot: Super 80
Nobody knows extra-fine nibs like the Pilot brand! This rare Pilot Super 80 has an extra-fine nib that will satisfy your most razor-sharp writing jones. Under the heading of NOBODY'S PERFECT: The filling mechanism on this pen seems to be needing some help. It has one of this odd little flip fillers Pilot used for a couple years, and it isn't filling. We aren't Pilot experts and aren't sure how to fix it without damaging it. The cap is nearly perfect with only a couple tiny scratches and no dents. The barrel shows a little more wear, but it isn't bad. Strong imprint. 13.2cm capped.
