Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen Persimmon Orange
The Platinum Pen Procyon, named after brightest star n the Canis Minor Constellation, one of 21 first magnitude stars. The Procyon brings a sleek and colourful pen to brighten up your everyday writing.
A coloured aluminium body with either a glossy like glazed pottery (Deep Sea, and Porcelain White) or a matte texture (Turquoise Blue, Persimmon Orange, and Citron Yellow), brings a touch of playfulness to quick notes or long letters. The aluminium body offers excellent weight distribution to enhance comfort over long writing sessions. The pentagon-shaped nib harks back to 1962 when Platinum introduced Japan's first fountain pen with a pentagon-shaped gold nib. The design offers a writing feel beyond most steel nibs.
The redesigned feed features a larger and flatter breather hole helping to draw up the last of the ink from a tilted empty bottle when used with a converter. The placement of the feeder allows the pen to draw ink without having to submerge the pen up to its nib section as with a more traditional design.
Employing the Platinum Slip and Seal Mechanism, the Procyon is ready to write at any time, even if it's been sitting. The spring-loaded inner cap presses tightly against the grip section to ensure an airtight seal, preventing ink from drying on the nib.
