    Relatively affordable note taking pens
  2. From the album: Japanese pens

    Some Platinum Balance and Plaisir pens I ordered from Rakuten Global Market, back in the good old days when Rakuten was still operating an English-language marketplace site, and before it pushed sellers to stop shipping exports directly and steer overseas customers to use the Rakuten Global Express forwarding service. I bought these because custom engraving was included in the price, and I was looking for a bunch of cheap but reliable pens with (most importantly) effective sealing against ink evaporation when capped. The two Platinum Balance pens (on the far right) proved to be not so good in

    Balance of a filled Platinum Plaisir

    From the album: Hanging in the balance

    The Platinum Plaisir show was installed with a CON-500 converter (which was not empty at the time).

  4. I have a Preppy and a Plaisir. They both have a similar nib and writes the same with a good touch of feedback. Though I love butter-y smooth pens, but I do enjoy the pleasant feedback of both the Platinums I own. I heard that Balance and Cool nibs are different from Plaisir ones, how different is the writing experience? Do they write smoothly or they give off that same feedback? Or any other parameters?
  5. Being the happy owner of two Sailor fp's (1911 Standard GT & Pro Gear Slim CT, both 14k H-M) and two Pilot fp's (Custom 823 F and Metropolitan M), I was curious what Platinum would bring to the gathering of Japanese pens. As I did with Pilot, I decided to buy a cheap pen first, with the possibility to "upgrade" to a gold-tipped model later on. So I got a blue Plaisir with 0.3 mm nib (18 euros) and a blue Preppy with a 0.5 mm nib (3 euros). I compared them to each other as well as to the Pilot Metropolitan (19 euros). The 3 euro Preppy doesn't come in any kind of box. Based on look and fe
  6. Has anyone ever figured out how to safely remove the feed from the section of the Preppy/Plaisir so it can be cleaned and dried faster? In some SBRE Brown video he mentioned that he had been utterly unable to remove the fin-feed from the clear section of either his Preppys or Plaisirs, said that as cheap pen you have to deal with it, but complained that it took 'forever' for it to dry inside its clear tube section after rinsing it out. Well, I just got my first Plaisir (light and plastic-y yes, but the .05 writes very nicely - more smoothly than my .03 Preppy) and I see exactly what he was
  7. Do you have any pen and ink recommendations for book signings? My book of poetry just came out, and I've done two books signings with my Platinum Plaisir (fine) and Noodler's Baystate Blue. It actually worked out great, but I'd like to try out some other colors and would like to use some nicer pens. I'm a fairly new fountain pen collector, and I'm just starting to experiment with nicer pens. About my experience with the Plaisir/Baystate combo: I loved the bright color, it dried quickly (even though it's not supposed to be fast drying), and didn't smear. The Plaisir did fine, but being a ch
  8. The old-style Plaisirs with body-coloured nibs are £4.50 each at Cult Pens! I have a green one that I use carbon black with and it works really well.
  9. Hi! I've narrowed down my next pen choice to these two pens: the Plaisir and the HighAce Neo. Both are avaible locally in a mom-and-pop store. The Plaisir is $11 (right now there's a sale, and it's only $8.5), the HighAce is $13. I've only tried the HighAce, and I quite like it. I only have a Preppy. I'm a student, I write a lot, have very small hands, and I would like to use cartridges. I find the HighAce Neo's slimness good (before the Preppy I used a Parker Jotter as my pen), but the Preppy's is also good. Which one would you recommend?

    Refilling Preppy's Or Plaisirs

    I just can't seem to refill preppy/plaisir without making a mess on my fingers. I use converters on them, and I pull up the ink through the nib into the converter. What happens is that the ink doesn't get sucked in all the way, so there are residual ink that just sits in the feed: http://i1332.photobucket.com/albums/w614/GabrielleduVent/preppy_zps60fadbf3.jpg It'd take a while for the ink to drip down, and while writing, the ink flows out and makes a nice mess on my fingertips. It's not that big of a deal, but I'm starting to get a little irritated. Anybody have any tips on how to properl
