In 1964 Pilot's engineers created many new products to celebrate the Tokyo Olympics. The greatest of their achievements was the Pilot Capless fountain pen. Known as the Vanishing Point in the US, the Capless is 'the perfect combination of luxury and technology'. A simple push-button withdraws the nib into the body, closing an air-tight seal behind it to prevent it from drying out. The Capless can be used with ink cartridges but is also supplied with a converter to allow use of bottled ink. Available in a wide range of finishes, including the prestigious Namiki Raden, all come supplied in a luxury gift box.

Cult Pens are able to supply all available UK finishes; fine, medium and broad nibs; spare nibs; and cartridges in all three colours. Due to the growing popularity of this pen, we are now able to hold extensive stocks of all finishes and nibs. A note on nibs: Japanese 'medium' nibs are generally considered to be finer than European medium nibs, however in recent years the Capless medium nib has moved in line with European medium nibs. The broad nib is a good wide broad, but the fine nib is closer to a European extra-fine.

Pilot are not well known in the UK for their fine pens, but are considered by experts to be of exceedingly high quality. Pilot-Namiki nibs are held in the same esteem as Pelikan, Waterman and other high-end manufacturers. Our many customers for this pen attest to the supreme quality of writing and the high level of practicality offered.

14 May 2007: The Independent's '10 Best..' feature on fountain pens recommends the Pilot Capless as it's Best Buy. Cult Pens also gets a mention as a place to buy.
