Nice! I wonder how limited these “limited models” are? And how wear-resistant the graphics are?

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

the black one has serious potential... 

especially if the graphics can be worn off/removed relatively easily.

 

tsk for posting

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

These look really nice - so much so that I'll be happy to hand them out to hook people onto the hobby 😆

 

Hoping to see these in local stores soon.

A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

I wish they would make a Preppy that is 1.5x size/scale.

 

That'd be a bloody long pen!

Those are pretty! 

 

I'm not in pen-acquiring mode, but I'd look twice at those.

Sheesh, autocorrect must have been set on Polish.

Even in Japan they are only available in a few B&M shops. I guess they are special/limited editions which might sell out quickly. It seems to be a collaboration between that online shop and Platinum - no information on Platinum HP.

At IG, Platinum said they are (will be?) available only in Japan.

 

@IThinkIHaveAProblem

I think the print can be removed easily. With the normal Preppy printing, I used a mixture of 10%acetone in methanol and scrubbed it away. More acetone and you will destroy the clarity of the resin. https://www.instagram.com/p/CH6wuyaDyvq/

 

Actually, I am no fan of Preppys. I wanted to use them as eye-droppers but the weight of the ink pushed ink through the feed/nib and transformed an F nib into something like an M or B.

knowing that Japanese companies are notorious for their "Japan only" products, I won't be holding my breath.

😕

The designs are really classic, simple and so very Japan that I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Japan exclusive.
I particularly love the red (that asanoha is just perfect! ) and will totally be keeping an eye out for these but not getting my hopes up since they're limited.

5 bucks?? That is well beyond my budget.

Goulet says $7.20 USD—that's crazy. Adding a converter brings it to $18.20! Outrageous.

Damn shame I already bought myself another 18 Platinum Preppy pens earlier this week!

What do you do with all those Preppies?

Are you able to remove the nibs from the Preppies, or do you just switch sections?

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
