Agreed! The Goulets have it up in their 'Coming Soon' section and the pictures look awesome. This might be *the* Platinum I have to buy :)
Currently using:Too many pens inked to list, I must cut back! :) I can guarantee there are flighters, urushi, and/or Sheaffer Vac-fillers in the mix!!!

I already have the Bourgogne and love it. This would make a beautiful addition, since blue is my fave color :)

Another beautiful pen from Platinum. I especially like the new soft-fine nib. I guess that I'll have to get one when they come out. Thanks for the news.

That looks like the pen to load with Baystate Blue! I will probably get one to go with my Bourgogne
model.

Have seen it in person, it is a very dark blue in which similar to a smoke TWSBI in terms of what you can see inside. But what nib sizes are available as I was offered EF, F, M & B wondering if there is a SF?

You be in for a treat. The colour is nice. And keeps the ink wet to use.

The real treat is that the nibs and feed are interchangeable with Nakaya nibs.

I received mine today, rinsed and inked with some Asa-Gao and tried it. The EF nib is a little scratchy, but I expected that. Also the nib appears more silver than the one on my Bourgogne mode.
