A resolutely modern writing instrument, the Capless pen is currently the only retractable fountain pen in the world. The seal is provided by a minuscule metal shutter which is as discreet as it is reliable.

The Capless’ barrel contains a mechanism of rare precision, which allows the nib to retract into the barrel when not in use.…

The Pilot Capless Fountain pen has an 18kt gold nib and uses a cartridge/converter filling system.


The first Pilot pens were launched in Japan in 1918. At this time, the country was opening up to Western influences and was importing European techniques. By listening to their customers, Pilot’s research has enabled them to create new standards in terms of comfort and innovative products.

    Today my Pilot Capless (Medium) arrived. Maybe due to Covid-19 it took some weeks (a little more than expected). Writing with the pen is a pleasure. The medium nib seems to be similar to a European medium. I have also a Broad Leonardo Momento Zero and it writes quite similar. The capacity of the converter is quite small and filling process seems to be difficult but changing ink quite often is no problem for me.
    Thank you “Team Appelboom” ! Sure not my last pen !
    Stay healthy all together !!!

    Toen ik voor het eerst de Pilot VP zag wist ik al dat ik er een moest hebben. Deze versie ziet er echt prachtig uit en de fine penpunt schrijft heerlijk.

    Swift delivery, well packaged. The pen was beautifully gift-wrapped. The package also contained a small notebook with high-quality fountain pen friendly paper. This is a nice extra, thanks!
    The Pilot Capless Graphite Blue pen has a gorgeous look and feel. I already own a Capless with Fine nib so I knew that I would receive a product of superb build quality when I ordered this one with Medium nib. It writes incredibly smooth. Last but not least Appelboom is one of the few FP retailers that offer the service of a nibmeister who can finetune the nib. Highly recommended.
