Retractable Fountain Pen—With a Twist

For anyone who loves the convenience of a retractable nib but wants an alternative to Pilot’s original Vanishing Point, the Fermo model has a lot to offer. This design trades its sibling’s click mechanism for a smooth, silent twist action. No need to unscrew or post a cap—simply twist the end cap in one direction, and the nib is ready for use. Twist it in the other direction, and the writing point retracts behind a trap door inside the barrel to keep your ink from drying out. The Fermo Vanishing Point also has a slightly slimmer silhouette, and may be more comfortable to use for those with smaller hands.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice between the Silver finish with a Medium nib, the Black finish with a Medium nib, and the Black finish with a Fine nib. Quantities for these options are limited to 75 pens, 25 pens, and 4 pens, respectively (104 pens total). This model is discontinued, and may not be available again in the future.

Handy Pocket Clip, 18-Karat Gold Nib

The pocket clip sits on the same side of the pen as the nib, and is positioned in such a way that it won’t interfere with most grips. This unorthodox design permits quick, seamless use of the pen and allows it to be stored upright in a pocket to prevent leakage. Hidden inside the sleek brass barrel is a soft 18-karat gold nib, plated in rhodium. The nib offers a bit more line variation than most stainless steel nibs, and can feed ink either from disposable Pilot cartridges or from a CON-20 or CON-50 converter and your favorite bottled ink.
