  2. There are some reviews on the Platinum Cool, which is also known as Platinum Balance, on FPN and other places. Nevertheless I think adding one more might contribute some more information, another perspective, experience and pictures. I had this pen in fine and medium and now use the fine for more than a year. Introduction This review is meant to depict my personal opinion and valuation. I wont use points to rate aspects. While I dont intend to criticize those who do, I dont want to evoke the semblance of objectivity. I am neither an expert for standards used nor could I compare this pen to
  3. After days of tweaking, heat setting, carving and sweating i have finally obtained an almosdt perfect jinhao x750 flex pen. How i did it: At first i flushed the pen, got the friction fitted feed out, and replaced the nib with the flex one i had, aligning the first slots on the feed with the ones on the nib. Then i heat setted the feed on the nib, by clamping the tip of the feed with the nib and putting it in boiling water until it set. Then i took everything out, and eith a razor and a lot of patience made the ink flow slots larger and deeper, so that it would improve ink flow, i put everythin
  4. I have two Platinum Cool pens, which I understand are just the demo versions of the Balance. Ever since I got them one has had no problems (with Asa Gao), the other would not start, unless I used the nib upside down first, for a few words. I got fed up again, and cleaned it with a drop of soap, for the fifth or sixth time; but this time I replaced Vert Empire with Chiku Rin... And lo, no starting problems! Luckily I (think I) managed to recover a Waterman Laureat for Vert Empire. At this point I have stopped trying to understand the physics of it all and I'm just glad something worked. The ink
  5. Fountain pens are quite new to me and I still only have one pen, a Lamy AL-star with a fine nib. I like the pen, but I think it writes a bit too broad. I have been looking around quite a bit lately for a pen with a nice fine nib and have now come down to the following pens: Pilot PreraPlatinum Cool/BalanceSailor Procolor 500Sailor 1911 YoungThe problem I have is that these pens are not for sale in Sweden, hence I can't try them. The Prera seems like a really nice writer and is also the cheapest, but I'm a bit worried it is a bit too small (I hate posting pens). I'm worried that the nib of Co
  6. ... Or pen aesthetics vs writing aesthetics. I'd posted about my new Platinum Cool with Kon Peki, which I think is a spectacular combination, except the medium nib wasn't showing the ink on paper in all its splendour... So reluctanty I swapped ink with my "old faithful" Pelikan M400 and it looks better on paper: even with an F nib the Pelikan's line is broader than the Platinum's M... The combination of Mandarin in the Platinum doesn't seem as appealing, it's ok but not quite as spectacular... I think it might have something to do with the white cap. Still, I'd rather have good looking written
  7. I wasn't expecting this pen to be quite so beautiful, particularly the part under the nib that reflects the ink's colour... Of course Kon Peki is beautiful, although it's very close to Ama Iro. I followed Gouletpens instructions to sand away the gold colour on the converter. Best birthday present I've had in some time...
  8. Hi all, This past weekend I had my first real use of Platinum Carbon Ink. Initially I ordered the desk pen with a few cartridges just to try it out, however I fell in love with the ink and am looking to find a way to make this ink suitable for use on the move by putting it into a different pen. The huge disclaimers on the websites that sell this ink suggest that the Platinum Carbon Desk pen is the only pen this ink should be used with and it's physically different somehow to accommodate this ink but I have the impression that others use the ink without issue in other pens albeit no specifi
