Platinum Preppy Ef

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a Platinum Preppy EF from Goulet Pens...true to the conversation, the Preppy EF has been a pleasant surprise for a $5 fountain pen. It is actually a smoother nib than the fine, handles ink fairly well, and is comfortable to hold.

I plan to pick a couple up. They are great for editing purposes. I am currently inked with Diamine Oxblood and plan to experiment with "drier" inks to see how they handle them.

Wow! I had no idea that there was an EF Preppy! I love the Oxblood ink - there's something hypnotic about writing a whole page in it. Enjoy your Preppy

I'm loving these 02 EF Preppies.

Just ordered (3), one each color, waiting for them to arrive.

They arrived, after a delay while they hid under some construction leftovers under snow.

 

Why this mail delivery person placed the package at that side of the house, we'll never know; everyone else uses the door at the end of the driveway nearest the house.

 

The pens write very nicely, btw.

My 02 EF Preppy nibs have now found there way into Platinum Plasirs. This is because the caps kept cracking on the Preppies. Shame you just can't get the Plasir with the 02 to start with. Still I like the Aluminium Plasir and the colours look better in real life than in most online retailer photos.

I should do the same. All three of mine now have superglued caps. :(

 

Such a shame as I can't fault them otherwise.

The lid on my first 02 Preppy cracked after a week of light use. It's a shame such its a great pen otherwise. I'll need to pick up more once everyone starts stocking them again.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
