TWSBI Vac Mini Fountain Pen - Smoke
The Vac Mini has a vacuum filling mechanism, simply pull to extend the filling rod, submerge the nib in ink and push the rod back in. This action creates a vacuum inside the pen which sucks the ink up, filling the pen.
The filling mechanism includes an ink shut-off valve that can be closed when the pen is carried in a pocket or on aircraft to prevent any leakage.
