Pilot Vanishing Point in Gunmetal and Matte Black
I'm a nurse, so using a tradition fountain pen with a cap is impractical. I have two Platinum Curidases, but they have design flaws that have made them a poor choice for day in and day out clicking and un-clicking. I finally bit the bullet and spent the money on the Pilot Vanishing Point (M nib), and now I'm wondering why I spent $160 on two basically useless pens when I could have spent roughly the same amount on the Pilot!
This pen is a DREAM to write with. I've had it for less than a day and I'm already in love with it. Oddly enough, it's not as happy writing on my usual Rhodia Dot Pad paper as it is on copy paper, but this is actually a plu, since it's highly unlikely my doctor's office will invest in high-quality paper for copying and printing! It's inked up with the Sailor Studio 027 I ordered specifically for this pen (see review on the ink's page for a rave review), and it's writing so smoothly I could cry.
The weight and overall construction of this pen is stellar. This is no surprise since Pilot is known for consistency and reliability. I will likely buy a second Vanishing Point due to the high volume of clicking I do over the course of a day/week/month. This is the perfect pen for someone in the medical field, or really any profession where a lot of writing is done and a pen with a cap is impractical. I highly recommend this pen!
