DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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: Pilot calls this body color "Red," but it is actually a very dark pink.

Note: Ink is not included with the pen. Ink cartridges and converters are sold separately.

One of my favorite pens, second only to my Lamy All Star! This pen has a clean crisp line, with wonderful line variation. The ink has minimal feathering, even on cheap paper. I ordered the Namiki ink from pilot, which is in my pen. This pen also sits comfortably in my hand and even after writing for an hour there is little to no fatigue in my hand.
