The Jetsons' flying car sound whirs through your head when you pick up Pilot's Vortex fountain pen. (We hope you know what we're talking about.) Resembling some object from the future or from space, the Vortex pen is quite advanced indeed. It proudly features a highly original and novel design. Visual highlights include a large clear cap with silver perforated trim, an aerodynamic-looking silver clip with a colored accent piece matching the grip, and a nib emerging from a sturdy transparent sheath as if set for take-off. The pen is lightweight and short when capped, which is great for portability. Thanks to the lengthy cap, it becomes a normal size for writing when the cap is snapped on to the back end of the pen. It is unusual to find a rubber grip on a fountain pen, but the Vortex has a textured one that improves writing comfort. The smooth nib also enhances the writing experience. Once you get a hold of this pen, you'll first become the coolest person in your office, and then you'll enjoy wherever the pen takes you and your writing.
Note: Ink is not included with the pen. Ink cartridges and converters are sold separately.
