    Pilot Vanishing Nib Question

    I have a Pilot Vanishing Nib and need to replace the innards to correct a broken nib. Yet, the inner workings of my pen look nothing like what I see online for other vanishing nibs such as press bar refill mechanism. See attached pictures below for reference. Can anyone help me find the correct replacement parts? Thank you very much! Pilot Picture.pdf
  2. Hello all. I'm pretty new to FPN, and I'm wondering if you can help me with a question about the authenticity of my Pilot Vanishing Point Decimo. I received the pen today, and when I opened it up to put in some ink I noticed that the nib is unlike any other Pilot VP nib I have ever seen. I have been looking online for hours, but I can't find a single image of a Pilot VP nib that looks like what I have in front of me. I'm thinking that I might have received a counterfeit. Has anybody ever seen or even heard of a Pilot VP nib that looks like this one does? Image Link (because the site is being slow for me and I can't post the images here): https://imgur.com/a/1dceyCa Short Description: The nib has these sort of cut outs in the base, where the nib and feed join with the metal tube. The "wings" that wrap around the bottom of the feed and hold the nib and feed together are also different.

    Pilot Vanishing Point - Loose Clip!

    Dear all, I've got a small problem with my Pilot VP; the clip has developed several degrees of side to side play? I don't actually use the clip to, well, clip the pen to anything so I'm not too worried about that aspect of it, but because of the design of the pen you end up holding the clip and it's a little disconcerting if it wiggles whilst writing! Edit - I should add, I've had the pen for approximately 8 months from new Here's some pictures to illustrate the problem; one to the left... http://i.imgur.com/xbWeowj.jpg?1 ... and one to the right! http://i.imgur.com/pmzJ2Fq.jpg?2 The pen has never been abused or manhandled, so it's annoying that this has happened. There appears to be either a hairline crack or a moulding fault in the plastic (?) tip of the pen which may have something to do with the situation. I've dropped Pilot UK an email directly via their contact form, with no reply as of yet, and the retailer only suggested to get in touch with them directly as they don't handle repairs. So, (hopefully!) pending a reply from Pilot, I'd love to know if anyone has any suggestions as to how to tighten the clips a little, or at least stop the problem from getting any worse? I've taken the pen out of my rotation for the time being but would love to have it back in action soon. Also, if anyone has any experience of dealing with Pilot UK for repairs, I'd love to hear! Thanks in advance for your help, Alex
