I have been using this pen for a few weeks now, and all I can say is "wow". The
nib so smooth, and it never skips... it almost seems intuitive as it glides
across paper. As handsome as it is, it is a performance pen!
The body is metallic and dense, and so there is a helpful amount of weight in
the pen to help balance your hand as you write. And the retractable nib is a
marvel in its own right. The push-button nib clicks, extends, and contracts
like a cheap disposable pen would, but with the Pilot, it almost feels like your
pressing the launch button on a space vehicle, as the nib comes out of its
shudder with such pleasurable ease.
The matte black Pilot VP is so elegantly designed, and so functional, that it
seems like more than just a pen. To me, it is a small treasure.
This pen is amazing! Out of the box, it looks tiny, but after posting it, it
feels great on your hand. And the nib is high quality! I think that it even
writes better than some of the more expensive, gold-nib fountain pens that I
own. And the cool touch and solidness of the aluminum body really enhances the
writing experience. Just hearing the pen clink as I screw and unscrew the top
brings me some sensory pleasure.
This pen is definitely my favorite. I like it so much that I ended up purchasing
all three colors.
