If you are new to Pilot's Vanishing Point Line, here is some background:

The unique design allows, with just the push of a button, for the nib to retract into the pen body when not in use. As part of the design, when retracted, this pen does not allow ink to accidentally release ink onto clothes and work surfaces.

*  Great for everyday use and travel
*  Ink is loaded using either a cartridge or converter (Con40)
*  18K nib sizes range from Extra Fine to a 1.1 Stub and match the trim of the pen
*  Interchangeable nibs with converters are also available for purchase
