A Nagasawa Original pen based on the Pilot Vanishing Point Decimo. The pen's body features a neutral gray expression inspired by a gradient between the two Kobe inks, "#31 Kaigan Stone-gray" and "#59 Hirano-gion Romance-gray". New for this edition, the pen also features a sublte "1882 NAGASAWA" below the clip.

Pilot Capless/Vanishing Point. In 1963, Pilot released the first ever retractable fountain pen. After clicking the push button, the nib slides forward and pushes the lid down. By clicking the push button again, the nib retracts and the lid springs up, shutting the gap air-tight to prevent the ink from drying out. The nib is slim to fit inside the pen, and it folds down to grab the feed tightly to handle the constant movements. 
The very first version of Capless was actually a much more complicated mechanism to twist and expose the nib — and it was a result of 6 years research. For the past 50 years, there has been 11 different generations of Capless.
