Pilot Vanishing Point Gun Metal Gray/Matt Black

Pilot launched another Gun Metal Grey color for their iconic vanishing point (capless) pen last Christmas. The grey are darker as compare to the previous Gun Metal color. Instread of the standard Rhodium triming, this latest vanishing point pen treated the metalic parts with matt back finishing, similar to the Pilot Vanishing Point stealth pen.

While the triming is matt finishing, the barrel are not. It is gloss. hmmmmm ... disappointed.

We think a matt finsihing barrel will make this Vanishing Point look at a gun ... "a pen is mighty than gun". It kill silently. LOL
Initially, we didn't like the color matching and two different finishing, but slowing we accepted this pen into our Vanishing Point collection. We feel the tone of the grey is nice, and there are not many grey moderm pens nowadays.
The Pilot Japan is engraved at the usual position. Did you notice the trimming?
 It is in glossy black finishing. This is to match the barrel glossy finishing.

Did you notice another different of the Pilot Vanishing Point Gun Metal Grey with matt black finishing as compare to the Pilot Stealth Vanishing Point?
 While some of our oversea fountain pen users get their before last Christmas, it is only available recently locally in Singapore.
