Platinum Plaisir Fountain Pen - Fine 03 Nib - Blue Body

4.0 (3 reviews)
Many of us have suffered the inconvenience of pens drying up after a long period of not using them. The problem is especially common for fountain pens, which require almost daily use to prevent drying. Platinum has devised a solution. Its Plaisir fountain pen has an innovative cap that prevents ink from drying even if the pen goes un-used for a year. As buzzed about in World News and other news sources, this technology makes the Plaisir pen suitable for both everyday and occasional use. Not only does it save you from the hassle of a dryout, but it also reduces ink waste.

The pen body is made of aluminum with a silky, scratch-resistant anodized coating.

One black ink cartridge is included.

This pen writes well....

This pen writes well. That being said, there were a few design elements that I found questionable. The finish is almost too smooth to comfortably handle. The nib section spins freely and slips out rather easily which doesn't seem to affect the pen's performance, but unsettles me nonetheless. Finally, there is a significant depression around the nib section; when I filled the pen using the converter there was ink sitting in this depression that I found impossible to remove. When I took off the cap at work today, ink splattered my arm. This pen seems suited for cartridges but not for use with the converter, and I prefer using bottled ink. In conclusion, the Plaisir has a good nib, but I would not buy it again.

I bought this pen because I loved using the Platinum Preppy, but I wanted something more sturdy and long lasting. This pen does writes well, just like the Preppy BUT, as noted by the previous reviewer, "There is a significant depression around the nib section; when I filled the pen using the converter there was ink sitting in this depression that I found impossible to remove." I also ran into that situation and I had ink splatter on my paper when I inadvertently dropped it. I, too, prefer using a converter with bottled ink and my resolution was to just fill the pen up half way, remove it from the bottle and then retract it again so that the ink in the 'depression' would be sucked back into the converter. There was still some ink left, but it did not splatter as much initially and then it went away as i continued to use it. I should really give this 3 stars for the inefficiency, but I give it 4 stars because I like the feel/weight of the pen and how it writes just as well as the Preppy.
