There’s something so much more modern about the Pilot Fermo Fountain Pen’s twisting rather than clicking. As Pilot, Japan’s top pen maker knows full well. That’s why they made their retractable Fermo a fountain pen that you can twist to reveal the nib. When you don’t need to write anything, turn the knob, and make the nib disappear.
Pilot Fermo Fountain Pen
This Fermo fountain pen mimics the Vanishing Point but has a twist mechanism instead of a push button. The Fermo fountain pen comes with rhodium trims and an 18k nib. Long, sleek and graceful, the Fountain Pen mixes Japanese ingenuity with functionality. The Fermo fountain pen in Silver or deep blue look like a gem. Timeless as a diamond and at the same time modern. A trap door opens when the nib goes out and closes tightly after turning counter-clockwise. This trap door keeps the pen’s nib from drying out.
One of Pilot’s primary goals is to design and produce smooth pens with a comfortable grip and sustainable ink and ink refills. They are sponsors of the “Keep America Beautiful” campaign committed to lowering the number of pens that end up in landfills each year; they manufacture products that use recycled materials.

Pilot-Namiki Maki-e fountain pen heritage.
Finally, at the start of the 20th century, a fountain pen utilizing the Japanese traditional art of “Maki-e” was born. A robust pen body with a lacquer finish and a delicate design hand applied by a skilled craftsman created the Make-e pen. Seems like, those skills have been passed down to the world’s most famous name in Maki-e fountain pens, “Namiki.”
