Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - Red

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 Superstar May 29, 2017
Reviewer: Angela Churchill from Mount Pearl, NL Canada  
I'm a petite person (5'2"), so I have small hands. This pen is a superstar.

Light in weight. Steady ink supply and controlled flow through the nib to help you write neatly. As I write very small and tight, finer nibs are best for me. I got this in fine (03) and unlike other brands it is perfect for my handwriting.

My only issue is that when I do writing sprints, it sometimes couldn't keep up, giving me false starts. Although, that could have been the angle I was writing at or the angle I initially held the pen.

I also love the look of this pen. Platinum has the coolest nibs, with a sleek body shape as well as a wicked cartridge design. I love taking this pen with me everywhere. It doesn't feel cheap, or look it. I can't wait to convert it to eyedropper in the future.

Platinum is my new favorite brand of pen. I highly recommend it for beginners and all levels.

4 of 5 Solid writer August 1, 2014
Reviewer: Uri K from Wasaga Beach, ON Canada  
This pen performs very well with the supplied cartridge; it reliably writes on all kinds of paper that I have tried.
The only drawback I have noticed: if you carry it with the nib up it dries out, and you'll have to hold it with the nib down for a minute for the ink to flow down thru the feed before you can write. However, this is easily remedied: simply remember to carry it with the nib down, and it will reliably start every time.
