Capless Pilot Fountain Pen
Or the vanishing point as it is known here in the US. One click and the nib draws in and is protected, another click and it pops out ready for action. I still mostly just use this at my desk. I know it's meant to be carried around, but I like it safe and secure right here. Fine point and a perfect pen. Good pen.
Pilot is the 3rd largest pen manufacturer in the US. *If* I were to categorize all of my pens by age, color, tip size, roller, felt, fountain and ink color, I bet that I would have mostly Pilots in my collection. (by 17%) (I am kidding...or am I?)
When we were renovating our kitchen my wife ordered custom tiles that would "pull all the colors together" being a man, I nodded and went back to sports talk. When the custom tiles came in they were "all wrong" and "disastrous." I nodded and we decided to reorder new tiles. The key word I missed was "custom." Long story short, I have 4 boxes of very nice green subway tiles that I have to do something with. Here two are being used for expensive props and we went with a white tile. Lovely.
