Monday Matchup #42: Pilot Vanishing Point Yellow with Rhodium Accents in Fine with De Atramentis Mahatma Gandhi


Anyone who truly believes that the pen is mightier is on the same page as Mahatma Gandhi. As the leader of India's independence movement, Gandhi championed non-violent civil disobedience to pry his nation away from British rule. 

Gandhi used a number of tools to wage peaceful protests, from fasting to marches; his 241-mile trek to sea in 1930 drew a line in the sand with the British salt tax and remains one of the most indelible images in world history. 

Surprisingly, the Great Soul -- the translation of the honorific title "Mahatma" -- wasn't bestowed with the Noble Peace Prize, neither in life nor posthumously. But Fulfillment Team Manager Adam couldn't deny him the honor of Monday Matchup #42. Impeccably illustrated here with a Pilot Vanishing Point Yellow with Rhodium Trim in Fine and -- what else -- De Atramentis Mahatma Gandhi ink, Gandhi is accompanied by some of his deepest philosophical snippets. 

The Vanishing Point is a large, metal pen featuring rhodium accents and a matching rhodium-plated 18k gold nib. Gandhi's namesake ink is a fitting match -- enough to spark fresh takes and conversation about a timeless leader.

The Pilot Vanishing Point Yellow with Rhodium Trim is available at GouletPens.com for $140. De Atramentis Mahatma Gandhi ink is available in a 35ml bottle for $12.95 and as a 2ml ink sample for $1.25.

  1. OMG! This is phenomenal. Unbelievable. I wish I could buy this and frame it. One of my heroes, and so well done. I've never really paid any attention to this ink, assuming it was just another orangey-yellow ink that wouldn't show up well. I was wrong. This is a beautiful, complex ink, with great shading. The pen is perfect as well. I may have to splurge and add another VP to my collection.


    Every week y'all come up with the best match ups. It is a real treat to enjoy these. To all of the artists at Team Goulet, my appreciation, congratulations, and maybe just a twinge of envy about your incredible talents! Thank you for sharing!!!

  8. Can you purchase the artwork? I would be interested in purchasing either that one or a reproduction of it in another ink. It would be an amazing addition to my office.
