Does Anyone Have A White Vanishing Point - Does It Stain?



Recommended Posts

I just wanted to throw it out there and ask -- does anyone have a white Pilot Vanishing Point? And if so, do you find that the barrel stains easily? I like this color but I'm worried about it getting messy.

 

Thanks!

Probably no more than any other light colored models. You plan on leaving ink on the outside of it after filling without wiping it?

 

Unless you mean staining from hand, and again, probably no more than any other lighter color.

I have a white M205 and I haven't had any staining. Just wipe it down right away when ink gets on it and you should be all set.

Great! I just wanted to make sure nothing crazy was going on with them. For some reason I have the idea that lighter colors stain easier, like they do with clothes and upholstery, but obviously pens aren't made of fabric :)

 

Thanks for the input!

Well they'll probably show dirt easier, but not sure how often you get dirt and grime on your pens and just leaving it there. And yea if it were fabric or had a lot of grooves and such for dust or ink to get trapped in, then maybe it would be an issue (but from the look of the VP there's not a lot of places for stuff to get trapped in being mostly smooth).

I've had a white VP for a few years now, and it does not stain any more (or less) than others in my collection. Of course, I SEE the ink much more too, so I am quicker to wipe anything off that I see. Still, after a few years of being in and out of rotation, I don't see any permanent staining or finish wear on it.

I used to own a white VP, and did not stain even with "nonsafe" inks like Noodler's. Of course, I didn't leave it dipped in the ink for ages. :P

Then again, I also had the ivory-colored Pilot Prera, and that one did stain, so I had to always wipe it with a wet napkin to get it off, so I think you've got nothing to worry about.

Of course, the neat feature of the VP is that the nib assembly is just removed from the barrel for filling, which also helps to virtually eliminate ink getting on the barrel....

Safe Pelikan, MB, Herbin inks....don't know which Japanese inks are safe.

 

No BSB....and I'd be wary of any supersaturated inks.

I don't have a white pen, and will not buy one.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

I've had a write vp one for a few months with no issues after using it with 3 different inks. White suits the vp styling well...

I've kept mine clipped to the pocket of my jeans for a couple years. The indigo has slightly stained it.

      @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.
