    Just got this in the mail today. Solid brass. Very well made, and it takes refills from multiple brands such as the G2 gel refill. Only $20 on Amazon. Love this thing.

    Found this at a street arts festival. A bit over-the-top, but that's why I bought it. Actually, handles and writes well.

    Is that one of the two-toned zirconium pens that Will sent an e-mail out about?

    Yes, sir! This is one of those 2 tone zirconium sliders that Will had for a brief sale!

    It took all I could do not to pull the trigger on one of those, but I knew that my ADD would never be happy with that two-toned look.

    I have a titanium Slider that's light, and a brass Slider that's heavy. How's the weight on the zirconium?

    My current carry is my Pilot Vanishing Point with the Black Carbonesque finish. Love this pen, been kind of on a tear this year buying sub $150 fountain pens but this is it, my end game. (for now) Have had this pen since Christmas and haven't had that urge. Well I might be getting another VP in a different finish. Such a great pen.

    I've had the Pilot Vanishing Point pen in my Amazon wish list for a long time. Seeing this post really makes me think of getting it now. This forum makes me spend a lot of money. Ha!

    I have four of the Pilot Vanishing Point pens, including a blue carbonesque; two with fine points and two with medium. These are great pens; never seem to have the nibs go dry as long there is ink in the reservoir (usually I use a converter; sometimes cartridges). Smooth as silk on most paper. But that seems to describe Pilot fountain pens overall; I also have a 'pocket size' M90 as well as a Metropolitan. The Metropolitan was only a $10 pen when I bought it new; writes just as well as the VP's and the M90, all of which were obviously more costly!

    For anyone who does not sit at a desk but wants a fountain pen (e.g., doctors, sales people) the VP is great!

    L'chaim!

    Really is a great pen, only knock on it is the ink capacity. But I love changing inks, so I get by about a week with one fill. Nib is so smooth.
