Hello forum,

 

I've just bought what I think may be a Platinum PKA 500. The design is white with green clovers, exactly the same as the pen in this link

 

http://www.vitstyle....untain-pen.html

 

with one difference being, the nib is steel. I checked the photos very well, above the P symbol on the nib, nothing is written. Only some japanese under it.

 

Does anybody have any expeirence with the performance of this pen/nib? And would it be possible to swab the nibs on it? I intended this pen to be a present for my wife but was hoping the nib would be gold. Unfortunately, it wasn't. The pen is still on its way in the mail.

You could try buying another Platinum Pocket Pen on Yahoo Auctions and swap the nib over, but you'll need a tool to remove the lock ring inside the pen to get the nib out.

So it is not as straightforward as other pens. Is there a video on image online that shows this locking ring so I am familiar with it?
