The Raden Vanishing Point is a spectacular example of Japanese Maki-e artistry, displaying the beauty of multi-colored abalone shells in a rich, hand lacquered urushi finish. Each piece of abalone shell is hand-cut and hand-laid into the pen. This fountain pen comes with a retractable rhodium-plated 18k gold nib – just click to expose or retract the nib. A hidden trap door helps keep the nib from drying out when not in use. A Pilot CON-40 converter is included with this pen, as well as a Pilot ink cartridge.
The Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen is a product rich in both history and performance. Its brilliant design and ingenious technology make it a pen for the new age. A larger size, durable metal body and attractive appointments make the Vanishing Point unmistakably unique.
