In one year I was successfulled to find all those capless :

From left to right :

Dark grey

Black

Dark blue

Light blue

Pink champagne

Yellow - Gold

White

Red

 

And all of them are inked with differents colors. They are so many colors to try that I don't have enough pens.

I really love to read the inks review

 

 

If you have colors that I don't have in M nib, and you want to get rid of them, I can give them a new home ;)

I have the Capless yellow mustard in broad in double so if someone wants to give it a new home, leave a MP.

Nice collection. I've a few of them myself and enjoy every aspect, from the design to nib performance. Great idea and a good pen.

Thank you all.

 

I forgot to show you my first japenese pen : the capless raden.

Being my first japense, I place it in a safe place and I forgot to take a photo of it with the other.

The mother of pearl is beautiful. The look is different with every light.

Wow! Gorgeous stuff. I was considering getting one from Richard Binder, with a custom cursive italic nib. Then I got distracted by Pelikans... but now, damn. Maybe I will get a VP!

Wow, those are all really lovely. I'm definitely interested in trying out a VP (I love Pilots and the capless functionality seems so useful), and these pictures give me a good idea of what colors I'm interested in. Thank you for posting!

Beautiful collection. My first real fountain pen after my starter pen was a yellow vp that I still have and use. Don't think that I'll ever get rid of that one.

That particular meeting was held in Tokyo on Sept 7, 2008. Once in a while, two renowned Capless (and Vanishing Point) collectors in Japan show their collections at meetings of WAGNER (a fountain pen association in Japan) in Tokyo and some other locations in Japan.

Now, *that* is a collection rather than an accumulation. Lovely! And it's so nice to see how much fun you very obviously have with them.

 

As an accumulator rather than a collector, I only have one VP (a Raden) - I do love the thing, though. I really enjoyed seeing all of yours together. Thank you!

I was hoping it was closer to the location in your profile. I'll have to schedule a trip there when they are having a meeting.

@ Nausica You have a great collection!!! ...

 

In case you want to see the types and how they started.... http://carmenriverapens.com/Vanishing_Point_images/index.htm

 

 

@ko6 Did you notice at first picture first row (down) third and fourth capless? I think these are the holly grail.... Don't you agree Nikolaos? (I know you are somewhere here....)

Still missing the "White Stripe" MYU and black brother MYU with transparent section!

 

(Has somebody a "Murex" with a working clock?

 

(Thanks to Steve I found the "Black Stripe Capless" and the "White Stripe Capless")

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
