Type  Capless fountain pen -- the nib retracts like a ballpoint.

Product Name  Vanishing Point.

Manufacturer and Year  Namiki (Pilot), Japan -- 1998, these Namiki branded VPs were made between 1994-9. This nib has a A1198 date code, so the pen was made in 1998.

Length  5-3/8"

Filling System  Pilot cartridge or converter. A good CON-20 squeeze converter is installed. There is a cartridge cover that we recommend using if you want to use a cartridge. It lets the clicker mechanism work better but we do not include one. 

Color  Faceted dark green with gunmetal colored trim.

Nib  MEDIUM 14k nib is smooth and somewhat firm with lovely tipping material. Marked M. As a note, the Namiki vanishing point nib units are a bit shorter than the later Pilot ones.

Condition  Superior condition. No cracks, chips, dents, or major scratches. The finish on the trim just looks a little less shiny than it would have brand new. Ships in Namiki box with paperwork.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

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 of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

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.
