Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is my first fountain pen experience so take this review with that in mind. I did have some early ink feed issues and learned that the pen needs to live with the cap on even if it is set down for a few moments.
The coloring on the tip flaked off within a week of use. I was able to carry the pen around in my pocket without any issues (until hooked the clip on something and tore it off). Writing with the fountain pen was an increase in writing enjoyment. I purchased some blue-black platinum fast dry ink for use with the pen and overall it was working well through 2 refills. Since I am new to the fountain pen world I am trying a few other brands/types of pens but at least for me it was a great first time fountain pen.
Platinum Plaisirs are excellent, sturdy writers for the price, and the fact that they come in numerous colors and a choice of Fine or Medium points makes them both attractive and portable. The M nib flows well with the included Platinum Black cartridge, and writes a slightly finer line than a standard Western medium.
Bought this as a replacement for the Plaisir I lost. It was a fine nib which was okay, but I prefer the medium nib. Both were excellent pens. You can swap out the nib holder with the Platinum Preppy if you want. I really like my Platinum fountain pens.
