Pilot has come out with a new Vanishing Point color, Gun Metal with Black Matte Accents. It’s basically a Gun Metal Gray VP body with Black Matte trim instead of rhodium. It’s a simple merge of the two pens, but WOW does it look sweet!
It was originally rumored to have the same shadow box as the black matte VP, but that’s not the case (pun!). It comes with the standard Pilot hard case that all of the other VP’s do. It’s available now, and is the same price as other VP’s, $156 at GouletPens.com.
I have a couple of other videos on the Pilot Vanishing Points, too. Here’s an overview of the Vanishing Point line, as well as a video on how to properly fill a Vanishing Point. I also show how these VP nibs write in my Pilot Vanishing Point Fermo review.
What do you think? Do you like the new color, or do you prefer the black matte version better?
