    Sailor Or Pilot?

    So I arrived to the last pen to my collection. Well, I think is going to be the last pen hehehehe.... It is going to be a Japanese branded pen, and I am between the Sailor Professional Gear 21kt Broad nib in black with rhodium trim. Or the Pilot Vanishing Point 18kt Broad nib in gun metal. The Sailor is priced at $170, and the Pilot at $115. But I cant decide between the two, what are your recomendations and opinions.....thanks!
  2. So if you know me, I have been iching for a new pen, but instead of getting a cheap pen, I want to save for the higher end pens from Pilot. There are so many from Pilot. Can anyone give me an idea of what pen I should get, and the pros and cons of them. Thanks!!!!!
  3. I posted a few days ago that I bought my first Pilot VP on Ebay. Well, I actually bought TWO Pilot VPs… both fine nibs. One blue with rhodium accents, one red with rhodium accents. I inked up the blue one right away and have been using it non-stop. It's an absolute dream. I haven't used another pen since I inked it. Well, today I thought "I'm going to ink up my new red VP" with a sample of Noodler's Antietam that I got from Goulet a while back. I inked it up, started writing, and immediately thought "Oh, that's not quite right." The nib is very smooth when moving down, or to the left, but when
  4. Are the differences between the Pilot Vaishing Point and the Pilot Capless Decimo enough to justify the extra $100 for the Decimo?
  5. It's official, the Pilot Capless 2013 limited edition fountain pen will be available from November! All Capless limited editions are special, but what makes the 2013 version even more so, is that it's also the 50th anniversary of the Capless fountain pen in Japan! Made from Maple wood and gold trim, the 2013 Capless also comes stylishly packaged in a luxurious matching wooden box. The 2013 Capless will certainly live up to its limited edition title, as only 900 of these pens will be available worldwide, but don't worry you can pre-order yours from us today. The higher cost involved with pro
  6. Celebrating 50 years of the Pilot Capless, the 2013 Jubilee Limited Edition Maple Wood Capless Fountain Pen is now in stock.

  8. Howdy folks! So I (finally!) found my beloved Pilot Vanishing Point (after about 5 years!) which got me rather excited... and then very disappointed as it seems to have dried up permanently and won't write anymore! I'm using standard Pilot ink cartridges and have tried everything to get the ink to flow again, but to no avail. Is this a common problem VP? Is there a way to get it writing again? Would appreciate some tips and tricks please!
  9. My friend John is a photographer and asked me if he could borrow a few fountain pens to shoot for his portfolio. I think he did a great job. http://static.squarespace.com/static/51c300c1e4b034c963afc8b8/t/51c48c43e4b0c5a944a39daa/1371835461423/20%20-%20Pennor0564.jpg Pilot Capless, TWSBI Diamond 540, Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo ink, Pilot Custom, Pilot MYU BS-500. http://static.squarespace.com/static/51c300c1e4b034c963afc8b8/t/51c48c2ce4b09ee48eb671cd/1371835437733/20%20-%20Pennor0531.jpg Montblanc Meisterstück 149, Waterman Carène, custom Nakaya, Iroshizuku Chiku-rin and Tsutsuji ink.

  10. Okay, so I was outbid on the Sheaffer I was going to get (damn ) and started looking around, and I noticed that a lot of the time, hooded nibs are recommended as an alternative to inlaid/inset nibs. With brings me to my actual question: which is better for me, a Sheaffer Imperial Triumph or a Vanishing Point? The criteria I have: The pen would be used for taking lecture notes, and I can refill every day if necessary. I usually carry my pens clipped to the folder I'm using, or tucked inside if the clip doesn't allow it (looking at you, Parker Vector) The pen needs to be blue (I know, thi

    Storing A Pilot Vp

    Hello, a Pilot Vanishing Point (Capless) is on the way to my mailbox and I was thinking about this: I am storing all my capped pens with the nib upwards, both when I'm carrying them in my bag and when they're resting in a glass on my desk. I can see the VP placed nicely in a shirt pocket, however, I don't know what would I do if I wanted to put it in a case, or just store it on my desk. Wouldn't I wear the clicking mechanism if I placed it with the nib upwards; or wouldn't the ink leak from the nib if I did it the opposite way? Since many of you have VPs, how do you carry and store them? Tha

    Vanishing Point Stops Writing...

    Hi FPN, I've encountered a rather unexpected problem with my Medium VP (modern) over the last few days. Sometimes, over the course of a page, the ink flow will dwindle until the pen stops writing. After retracting the nib and lightly shaking the pen a few times, it (quite literally) gushes back to life. I have Noodler's Black in the cartridge, and haven't yet heard of this ink being problematic to the VPs. I've flushed the pen in tap water for 12 hours, and filled it with MB ink, but I'm going to be needing a darker black (MB's is purplish) tomorrow onards. Any suggestions? Thanks! Pen&
