Now to the pen. A very distinct looking sterling silver body. Plantinum says this pen is created by the silver artist who is recognized by the govt of Japan. Under light, the body and cap sparkle and reflect light because of the hammered finish. This is a different kind of sparkles I saw from other sterling silver pens.
The nib is made of platinum. My dip test with WM Florida Blue indicates the nib is super smooth medium tip. Platinum M nibs are more toward Western F or EF (for that matter). So, I can write small letters neatly while enjoying a smoother M tip. I also enjoy Platinum's F nibs and I find both tip sizes are very good in their own right.
Here are side by side comparions with other sterling silver pens.
Platinum Pin Stripe Sterling Silver vs Hammered Sterling Silver. The size looks the same.
The gold vs platinum nib. Both nibs are great writers.
And, together with a MB silver barley.
