Colorful and cartridge refillable fountain pens seem to be gaining popularity in Japan. The treasured spirit of writing is captured in a new and modern form.

The Platinum Preppy, like the Pilot Petit1, is a compact fountain pen available in different ink colors. The stainless steel nib is colored to match the color of the ink. It's refillable with cartridges and made of 40% recycled plastic (how green!)

The color is more hot pink than red--but a great pen nonetheless

For $3, this is a great pen. I love the clear body and the red accents, including the red nib. It's lightweight, not too thick in the barrel, and a good length even when the cap isn't posted. In my estimation, the Fine nib writes similarly to a 0.7mm Le Pen or 0.7mm Sarasa. It was well worth the purchase!

My only issue with this pen really isn't with the pen at all, but rather the ink. Instead of being an opaque true red, the ink lays down transparent (but not thin), and when dry, is more of a fluorescent red with salmon tones - the same "pink" that many other reviewers have noted. The ink also has a tendency to bleed somewhat through 20# copier paper, which is the only thing that prevents me from using the ink for highlighting. It may be worth refilling the cartridge once the ink is gone to see how a more opaque ink flows through the pen.

The pen is great in every sense, and I am specially fond of the nib's red color and the whole pen's practical nature. However, as a previous reviewer noted, the red ink is not red at all, it is totally pink.

By chris6283kim - See all my reviews
I just bought this pen and am waiting for it to come in the mail. It usually takes about 1-2 days to get to me and I've ordered many times from jetpens. I read an article saying you can refill platinum preppy fountain pens with regular bottled inks by just adding an o-ring to the threads of the barrel. I am currently in love with the j. herbin and pilot iroshizuku bottled inks and am waiting on my glass pens and the platinum preppy pens to test them out. I am definitely looking forward to receiving these pens in the mail. I only wish bottled inks were cheaper... $22.50 for a bottle of iroshizuku is really taxing my wallet. overall, great buy though!
