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!) Available in 03 fine and 05 medium nibs.

The main feature of these pens, other than price (you need not cry too hard if one goes missing) is their ability to become eyedropper pens with a #5 washer available at any "hardware" store like Lowes or Ace Hardware. The instructions are posted elsewhere on this web site.

Just be sure to dab a bit of vaseline in the threads and you have a good writing pen that lasts literally for weeks or months without refilling.

As a college instructor I have one in each of four colors, black, brown, red and green, for everyday use in marking, editing, etc. Superb pens if used this way. Of course their writing feel is limited by their material and cost - but for a couple of bucks what do you want? Mont Blanc??

It\'s a nice pen for the price, that\'s for sure. But I like the PILOT Petit1 better.
A big down side for me is the non-removable bar code and label. So it\'s not so
esthetically pleasing, but hey, it\'s ok for the $. The ink is a mid to light green color.

Maybe I got a bad pen, but I can't get this to write consistently for more than a single line. If left sitting for more than 30 seconds, it won't start writing without a lot of work. I do like the color, though the green is lighter than I anticipated. But that doesn't really matter if I can't get the ink to come out of the pen.
