The year 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of Pilot's revolutionary Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen. The company marked the anniversary by making a limited run pen of Japanese Itaya maple. Both section and barrel are made of this material, and all of the hardware is gold. The body of the pen is lightly finished, and will undoubtedly gain character over time. Pilot also excels at presentation for their limited presentations, and this release is no exception. It comes in a maple box, luxurously lined in a soft fabric, with a maple plaque noting the provenance of the pen. As always with Pilot's fountain pens, a box of proprietary cartridges is included, but the final special touch here is that cartridges are also contained in a maple box that closes with two tiny magnets. It's altogether a lovely presentation of Japanese craftsmanship.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
