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!)

This pen far exceeded...

This pen far exceeded my expectations. At the price how can you go wrong? That's exactly how I felt about this pen when I bought it, but I was surprised at how well it wrote with the default cartridge, especially it having such a fine point. It is light and ergonomic, well-balanced in weight distribution, and made of thick plastic with a hexagonal design inside the barrel which seems to reinforce the structure. My only complaint about the construction of the Preppy would be the clip, which is loose and shallow; it doesn't grip my pocket enough to keep itself from falling out.

The ink flows well and isn't particularly dry or wet. It writes smoothly and with no skipping, delivering a thin line with minimal scratchiness. It is a very vibrant pink, and stands out quite a bit on the page.

I love this pen and used mine every day for several months. The only downside is the barrel cracked after only a month of use. I wrapped it up with some cello tape and it's fine again. This is a fun pen, great for everyday use, and inexpensive both for the replacement cartridges and the pens themselves. I will definitely be adding to my collection.

Pretty and basic, really nice! The pink color is my favorite! I have two of these now and my first one was really nice! No skipping, no trouble of any sort, really smooth writing and almost no bleeding or feathering. The newer one I just ordered doesn't work for long periods of time and is a bit scratchy to boot! I'm working on getting it to work as well as my first one but this seems to be a rare case since the other new ones I ordered worked GREAT!
