Filling a Pilot Vanishing Point Fountain Pen

This has been one of the most requested videos for me to do, so....here it is! Filling a Pilot Vanishing Point isn't hard once you understand how the pen works. It's quite different than most other fountain pens, so it does take a bit of studying and practice. Once you get the hang of it though, it's as simple as any other fountain pen.

Pilot Vanishing Point Overview

There are a lot of different Pilot Vanishing Point pens, and I thought it would help to talk about them all in a video. These are very clever pens, one of the only retractable fountain pens on the market. They have a lot of beautiful colors, so I thought I'd show them off.

Edison Collier Sneak Peek

We had the opportunity to see the latest Edison pen, the Collier, this past weekend while we were at the DC Pen Show. We used the opportunity to snag Brian Gray and record a quick peek at the new pen in the 3 colors, and see how they compare to the Edison Nouveau Premiere and Edison Hudson. And at the end of the video, that noise is a guy getting out of his chair, I swear! It's pretty funny to see Brian Gray's reaction though.

Online Smaragd Ink Review

Online is a brand out of Germany that most people have never heard of. They only have a few inks, one of which is Online Smaragd (Emerald), a name you likely won't forget. It's a nice green color, with it's most notable feature being it's amazing shading.

Noodler's Blue Ink Review

Noodler's Blue is one of my favorite colors, I can't deny it. Since I loaded it up in my Pilot Custom 74, I have just been refilling and refilling it! I am a serial ink sampler as well, so any ink that makes me want to load it back up in the same pen time after time is something special.

Kaweco Nib Size Comparison

Since we recently received the Kaweco pens in extra-fine, fine, medium, and broad nib sizes, I thought it might be helpful to do a comparison writing sample.
