Help Identifying Pilot Vanishing Point

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone :) I just bought this pilot vanishing point (almost brand new) and I have some doubts about the model. Is that a regular (the thicker one) or the decimo? The tag on the pen says decimo, but the pen looks fatter than the other ones I saw online :/

Sure looks like a regular VP to me!

I think the tag was attached wrongly. The capless decimo should comes with silver trim. This is Pilot normal capless with gold trim which is retailed at 15000 yen in Japan.

Look at the two metal rings in the middle of the pen, where the two halves fit together. You will notice that those two are subtly different on the Decimo than on the "full sized" model. Another way to be sure is to weight the pen; the regular version weighs around 30g while the decimo is around 20g.

I got it my hands and it is indeed a normal VP. It has the nice metal weight I was hoping for :) Aparently, the seller got it from a pen repairman who put it in a wrong box. By the way, that nib is excelent. Writes better than more expensive pens. If that is a common thing for pilot I will certainly get more.

FYI you can always tell a VP and Decimo apart by the clip. The VP clip is rounded and pinched close to one end, the Decimo clip is straight.
