Platinum has recently announced the soon to be released Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen! Drawing its name from the brightest star in Canis Major, Platinum hopes to brighten up the workplace. In addition to these bright colors, the Procyon also comes with a new body-style for Platinum. Instead of the typical cigar-shape employed by most Platinum pens, the Procyon instead will come with flat ends.
The Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen
Platinum Pen Company has pulled out all the stops for the Procyon, and has added many great features that will have you doing a double-take. The first of these great features is the unique Platinum Slip & Seal Mechanism. This mechanism allows for complete air-tightness inside of the cap preventing ink from drying out in the pen for up to a year. For anyone who has used fountain pens, you know what a great feature this is.
In addition to the Slip & Seal Mechanism, the Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen will also have a unique breather hole. Instead of the breather hole being on the top of the feed, the breather hole for the Procyon is on the bottom. This unique position allows for you to fill even from the last drops of the bottle. The Procyon can fill even with the pen held horizontal with the feed flat in the ink!
The Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen comes with a pentagonal shaped nib. The pentagonal shape allows for the nib to have resiliency as well as a little spring. The stainless steel nib has been designed by Platinum to feel like writing with a gold nib. The barrel and cap of the pen are both aluminum, which helps the pen to be both light and balanced.
The Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen is an innovative and great new pen from Platinum. We are excited to be able to offer the Procyon in all five colors, and for only $66 USD MSRP, or $52.80 USD on sale! If you’re new to fountain pens, or a Platinum collector, you won’t want to miss out on the Procyon. Comment below with your thoughts on the Platinum Procyon Fountain Pen!
