Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - Black

Japanese pen company Platinum's Preppy Fountain Pens are the perfect introductory fountain pen, with a clear body to see your ink and a touch of colour (or black, if you like). The clear grip section lets you see the ink coming down the feed. These pens come with one cartridge, and while you can get a converter to use bottled ink, the preppy is one pen made for an eyedropper conversion. With a smooth Platinum nib, it is great as a starter fountain pen.

Includes one cartridge.
Compatible with a Platinum converter (sold separately) or Platinum proprietary ink cartridges.
Available in a variety of colours.
Dimensions: 5.5 inch (6 inch Posted)
Weight: 10g

5 of 5 Worth the money March 11, 2017
Reviewer: David from ON Canada  
While there are lots of pens that will look better than this, not many will write more consistently and certainly not for the same money. The main reason I keep coming back to this one in my collection is that it writes every time. I lost mine in the chair cushions for several months. Once found I tested it and it wrote, skip free, right away with no efforts. Some of my pens don't after 1 day of non use. The ease of eye dropper conversion, the price, the colour options, all certainly make it an easy decision into a great everyday pen.

4 of 5 Cheap but Cheerful April 6, 2016
Reviewer: James from Richmond Hill  
It is admittedly a cheap pen and the fact is reflected in its scratchy nib. But it is a pen that you can throw into your bag and go anywhere without worrying about it being lost or stolen.

In fact, on a trip to Japan a few years ago, a Preppy loaded with Platinum Carbon Black was my main writing instrument. It even went with me on the trek up Mt Fuji. There was a light drizzle half-way up but the fountain pen, ink and the Rite-In-The-Rain notebook in my back pocket held up fine.

5 of 5 Incredible value February 23, 2015
Reviewer: MR from Toronto, ON Canada  
As far as value for the money goes, it's hard to beat this pen. For a few bucks you get a pen that writes pretty smoothly and can easily be converted to an eye dropper. It writes as well as my Lamy Safari for a fraction of the price. The ink in its cartridges actually holds up well on cheap paper too. I would highly recommend this pen to a beginner who is unsure whether to start writing with fountain pens. Even if you have more expensive pens, you can keep one or two of these around for jotting quick notes.
