I had this exact pen (Namiki Vanishing Point, Blue Carbonesque) with a F nib some years ago and sold it. I really regret selling it so last week I ordered another from our good friends at Goulet Pens. It arrived yesterday via USPS Priority Mail.
Below are a bunch of pics. But first are two videos that coincidentally Brian Goulet just posted yesterday. There’s really not much point in going too far into detail about the pen as Brian’s explanation and videos are perfect. Click on any of the pics to see full-size. At the end are some other links to more info.
