Pilot Vanishing Point Maplewood with XXXF nib and Pilot Black cartridges

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.
