After the Pilot Petit1 fountain pens, US customers can now buy another disposable fountain pen from Japan, the Preppy fountain pen from Platinum.
- uses Platinum cartridges only
- very smooth writing; no feathering even on cheaper paper (that might be the ink though)
- can write with the nib upside down for a thinner line
- nib feels very comparable to a Pelikan steel nib & a Lamy Safari nib
- line width seems to be about Pelikan EF size or more like a Japanese MF size
- a tiny bit longer than a Pelikan M200
- weight & barrel girth about the same as a Pelikan M200
- $4.95 at jpens.com
