The Pilot Decimo has been a classic everyday writer in Japan for years and now it's available in the United States. This slim retractable fountain pen is from Pilot's capless line and allows the nib unit of the Decimo to be switched out with any of the other capless nib units. The body has a metallic finish covered in layers of lacquer. The 18kt gold nib with rhodium finish is a luxurious writer and provides a writing experience that is not normally associated with a retractable pen.
All pens include a cartridge, cartridge cap and converter. Nibs of different point sizes can be purchased separately.

Customer Reviews - 2 item(s)Namiki Vanishing Point Decimo - best writing pen around
4 / 5 Mayer Namiki Vanishing Point Decimo - best writing pen around I just bought the new Decimo edition of the Pilot-Namiki Vanishing Point pen. Service from Pen Boutique couldn't have been better. I've had 2 previous VP pens, the first was small and light and then some years later they came out with a bigger heavier plastic or lacquer though the pen mechanism probably hasn't changed. These pens are quirky and goofy looking but are utilitarian. When you click it open you're always ready to write; you don't usually have to coax the ink to flow and I use the extra-fine nib, plus it doesn't usually leak even when you drop it with the nib closed. And there's no cap to lose. What happens to me is that after dropping it enough times, the front end cracks and then clicking it open is a challenge. I usually use the cartridge and fill it with a syringe from a bottle since it's cheaper than buying cartridges. Also a cartridge holds slightly more ink than the converter. An improvement is that you now get a piston type converter that is more reliable than the older squeezable rubber bladder type. Was this review helpful? Yes No 0 of 0 users found this review helpful.
