Reviewer’s 1st Reaction: Upon First Seeing Platinum’s Retractable Fountain Pen
I already Loved that it was retractable before it even arrived. Before getting my hands on the Platinum Curidas Retractable fountain pen, the only retractable fountain pen design I was exposed to was the Pilot Vanishing Point, and it has a significantly higher price point.
Having only been exposed to the two different retractable fountain pen designs, I couldn’t help comparing the writing and usability of Curidas vs. Vanishing Point. I discovered that I not only prefer the lower price of Platinum’s Curidas, but I also prefer the Curidas itself to the Vanishing Point for a couple of reasons.
#1 The Platinum Curidas was much easier to write with at different angles in comparison to the Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen.
#2 The Curidas fountain pen was more comfortable. (I really like that you can take the clip off the pen).
On Being a Leftie: How is the Platinum Curidas Fountain Pen for Lefties?
It’s sometimes difficult to find fountain pens that work well for lefties; especially if you prefer fine nibs that work well without being scratchy. So if you’re left-handed and you’ve been wondering about Platinum’s Curidas, I have good news. In the opinion of this “leftie,” the Platinum Curidas fountain pen is a good option for lefties. I hereby encourage left-handed fountain pen users everywhere to consider the Platinum Curidas a good bet.
