Platinum un Nice Pur lim edition with a crisp Italic

 

Hello FPN!

It’s been a while since I wrote a review, but I think this pen demands one. 

I love italics, almost as much as flexible nibs. Therefore I own a bunch of italic nibs in all the spectra of smoothness, but only one customized by a nibmeister ( a B cursive italic by Mike Masuyama I bought from Franklin Christoph, wich is one of my favorite nibs of all time) so I have been looking around for another custom grind. I love my CI but wanted to try a crisp italic, because I prefer as big a contrast between thick/thin lines as possible. 

   Another one of my passions are demonstrator pens. And one more are japanese pens.

    So, when Browsing nibs.com a nice day I found a Platinun nice pur with a nicely discounted price I jumped on it, and ordered a extra broad ( C nib )with a crisp italic grind and an inkflow of about 7/10.

After a very brief waiting time for the grind the pen was shipped. Then came nearly a month at customs and 60% in taxes ( gotta love brazillian customs)... and it finally arrived at my hands.

Nice box but nothing fancy.

Then the pen... it looks like a beautiful demonstrator with silver details. Nice, but not spectacular. But as soon as I picked it up I fell in love with it. It has a kind of satiny texture thats feels gorgeous in hand.

This pen is a delight to hold.

And the writing experience... WOW, it is better than I thought.

It is a really crisp italic but still smooth enough to write cursive, with an awesome line variation. And to my surprise, the reverse side is a juicy stub!!!! How cool is that???

So, to sum it up:

 

Beautiful demonstrator with rhodium trims

Delicious texture

AWESOME NIB!!!

 

My highest praise to Platinum for making this pen and the nice folk at nibs.com for the great costumer service and outstanding work.

 

Bye!

Congratulations that's a lovely pen and a great review and photographs.

 

I'm just waiting to see if Santa brings me a 3776 Bourgogne.

Sweet. You've got good taste. :) 

I've got the same pen with a stub nib - from John.
