Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - 05 Medium Nib - Blue Black Ink - PLATINUM PPQ-200 3 05
9/11/2014
It was a bit scratchy at first but then I unscrewed the bottom half and shook the ink cartridge a few times, just long enough to see the ink fill innnear the base of the nib. Now it works like a dream, smooth and easy to use, I scratched off the preppy stamp on the side because it made it look a bit cheap and now it looks more elegant.

About Platinum

Platinum Pen Co., Ltd. was founded in 1919 by Toshiichi Nakata to build fountain pens. In 1949, Platinum Pen received first prize in the first international pen exhibition in Japan. In 1957, as a forerunner in the industry, Platinum Pen started selling a type of fountain pens that is refillable with an ink cartridge, called the "Platinum Honest 60". In 1958, the company sent testers to try this fountain pen in the Himalaya Mountains and proved that the ink does not leak despite the low atmospheric pressure.

Today, Platinum Pen's cartridge refillable fountain pens are some of the most popular in the market place. At JetPens.com, even fountain pen novices are eager to try out the super affordable and extremely practical Preppy fountain pens.

Platinum Pen continues to push the envelope, recently developing a cap for the Plaisir fountain pen line. This cap prevents ink from both drying and evaporating even with no pen use for an entire year.
