Since its launch in 2007, the Platinum Preppy fountain pen has enjoyed its reputation as a wonderful fountain pen with real fountain pen writing despite its low price point. It’s easy to use, has a cool look, and comes in a variety of colors and nib sizes. The beauty of the sturdy stainless steel nib is brought out by polishing.

The pen won’t dry out even if the cartridge is installed for one year, due to Platinum’s “Slip Seal” cap mechanism. You can experience smooth writing from the start. Its sturdy stainless steel nib and ability to keep refilling will allow you to keep the pen for a long time. The pen uses the Platinum ink cartridges, but with the special Ink Cartridge Adapter it is also possible to use the Standard International ink cartridges.

In 1919, Shunichi Nakata, started his fountain pen business that would later be known as “Platinum Fountain Pen Co.”. The Japanese brand is closely related to the legendary Nakaya fountain pen brand, where some of the finest fountain pens in the world are created. This expertise also goes into Platinum’s own line of fine writing instruments.

    The medium nib is surprisingly a wet writer compare to the F nib of my other Preppy. It’s a perfect EDC pen due to its price point and weight. The seal system keeps the nib wet even its unused for a while. Overall I’m happy with this purchase!

    Writes like butter!
    It ain’t the prettiest pen, but for its price it has a lot to offer
    – Great starter for those on the fence about fountain pens
    – Cheap ginnea pig for difficult inks
    – Safe to have as a pen in uncontrolled areas. At work as a teacher for example.
    – Easy to have on the side for “accent” colors or to add notes in bigger texts

    All in all its a lovely pen which you can’t really have enough of.

    Great with F nib. One of best entry level pens. Great to have collection with different nibs or colours to match inks iside.
