This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was another Pilot Vanishing Point. This time it was the Pilot Maplewood Vanishing Point with a XXXF nib that was purchased from Richard Binder. It has a Pilot Black ink cartridge which is dark enough for the thin line the nib puts down. I did a lot of note taking and writing in Field Notes so the thin nib was ideal. This weekend I’ll probably swap the nibs between my Cherry Bamboo and Maplewood VPs so I spend more time with my new Cherry Bamboo. Another reason I like the VPs, ease of nib swaps without having to empty the pen.
