Hello!

Choosing Keeping will be launching a new range of Platinum fountain pens on the 6th February 6pm - 8pm. I thought this would be of interest for many Fountain Pen Network members and fountain pen collectors.

 

A presentation of a new unseen range of Platinum fountain pens alongside 10 rare antique fountain pens  from the Platinum archive that are being hand delivered from Japan for one evening only.  This event will also be an opportunity to see a large selection from the Platinum collection in one place at one time including the limited edition Platinum 100th Anniversary silver fountain pen.

 

Choosing Keeping will be making a limited edition Platinum x Choosing Keeping tote bag and notebook.

With every sale of the new Platinum pen Choosing Keeping will be giving away a tote bag, notebook and Platinum blue-black ink cartridges made with water from Mount Fuji.

 

See you there!

Do you know if this the official announcement of their vanishing point like pen? Or a new range different from that?

I'll pass.  I saw pix of those yesterday and they're pretty ugly looking pens.  Maybe if they hadn't decided to use translucent plastic....

The LA Show is coming up and Platinum informs they will have a table. Surely they will have a few to try. If okay more than one seller may offer at less than $64.

That was my impression too... The plastic looks like something I'd expect in a disposable ballpoint or a gel pen in the $5 range.

 

It also seems to have an excessively long button stroke based on the length difference of exposed button between nib out and nib in.

The pen does not tempt me, but I like your shop sign and mounting bracket.

I would be there if I didn’t have to work ... I’m curious about the Curidas.

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)
