From the album: Chinese pensThese fountain pens are Daiso's answer to the Platinum Preppy, with the clear, lightly coloured pen bodies and spring-loaded inner caps. Unlike the Chinese-made Platinum Riviere PTR-200, which Daiso also sells, they are not co-branded. These pens started appearing, here in Sydney, late in August 2020. I've only ever seen them in one store in the four months since, even though there are three Daiso stores within walking distance of each other. My first impressions are that these pens are of much better product quality than the PTR-200. The nib width grade is not stated anywhere, either on the pen itself or its retail packaging; the nib on the unit I've used writes like a Fine, I'd say.

Platinum is releasing a new model - the PROCYON. It has their famous slip & seal as well as a new feature: the ink inlet is further down, allowing for the pen to suck up ink without being fully imerged into the bottle, which means that it is easier to use up a bottle down to the last drop. Imo Sailor kinda can do this already, as their pens fill from the breather hole.... They are supposed to cost 5000 Yen + tax.
