About the Platinum Curidas

The Curidas retractable fountain pen from Platinum introduces a new writing experience and technology. Made with a reliability that can be expected from Platinum, the Curidas offers a fountain pen with a compact body and the ability to retract the nib of the pen, similar to the manner of a push-mechanism pen. The Curidas also offers a removable clip with a clear resin body design. Available in five colors and three different nib sizes; Extra Fine, Fine, and Medium.

Platinum Curidas Video Script

This is the Platinum Curidas fountain pen. The pen is made of a clear demonstrator resin body, with silver trim. There is a silver ring at the center of the pen, a removable silver clip, and a stainless steel silver-colored nib to match the rest of the trim on the pen. It has a black feed and it is a retractable pen. A small knob on the end allows you to retract the nib in and out of the barrel of the pen.

This knob is quite long because of the travel of the pen. It is made to travel quite deep into the pen, but also extend quite far out, which allows you to actually see the nib more while you are writing. Since you can see the end of the nib it is easier than some of the other retractable nib pens where they are quite short and don't extend out very far.

On the body of the pen, it is engraved with Platinum, Made In Japan, and Curidas on the barrel. To change the ink on the pen, you would unscrew the back section of the body, and it comes off. There is a small housing for the Platinum converter or cartridge that removes with a half twist and pops out, which removes the whole nib section. Then there is another half twist, which the housing will come off the nib of the pen. You can then put a converter on the pen, which is not included, or a Platinum ink cartridge, they slide on the end of the feed. You would then slide the housing back on with the half click. Then the nib section goes right back in with the half click as well. And the body then screws back on.

One of the nice features of the Curidas pen is the clip. A lot of people do not like the clips on the retractable nib pens. So, Platinum includes a small tool with the pen, which just slides on to the body of the pen. You push it on, and then you slide it towards the back, and the clip comes right off the pen.

So, if you don't want to use the pen with the clip, it does have a small extension on the barrel that sticks out where the clip attaches to keep it from rolling off the table. There's also a little knob on the other side of the pen as well. This is for the actual extension mechanism. You can see how it fits right into that little groove, and that allows the pen to extend out.

The mechanism inside is actually made of plastic to keep it from rusting and/or deteriorating with the ink. But it also never touches the nib, and that is for that long travel with the nib. It allows the mechanism never to touch the end of the tip of the nib, which is great because it will not wear out the nib on the pen as it is pushing it out. It's actually controlled by the rest of the mechanisms inside, which is a nice feature. The pen also will hold ink for up to six to eight months without drying out which is another nice feature of the pen.

Great new pen from Platinum, great retractable nib system. Get your Platinum Curidas fountain pen at PenChalet.com!

I absolutely love this pen! I've had it now for almost two weeks and I've had no problems with it. It writes right away and no splatter or cracks anywhere. The nub at the bottom does not bother me because I hold my pen a little bit higher on the barrel. I have the Urban Green color and it's beautiful. I would say the color is a darkish teal color and not green per se.i want to buy the red color sometime this year. My only pause is that I wish it was at the first price point still.

Have the pen for almost two weeks and the engineering aspect of the pen has not ceased to amaze me. The removable clip is also very well design and easily removed with the in box tool. The steel nib is also about as good as it gets, has a small amount of feed back while not being overly scratchy.

The Curidas is - dare I say - a curious fountain pen. I inked it almost immediately and began using and “carrying” it (while working from home) currently using it with Diamine “Sargasso Sea” it writes every time without flaw or fail on even the junkiest (copier) paper?

Platinum pens have become a favorite in my collection. So when they introduced the Curidas, I knew I had to have one! Awesome pen. I can always count on Platinum pens to write after weeks and months of non use.

It's a new favorite in my fountain pen arsenal. It has been in daily use. The mechanics, design, and nib quality are all excellent. I can see why Platinum hyped and marketed this pen the way they did; clearly they knew they had something good.

Not quite a Pilot VP but very close. The body is a whole lot lighter and maybe twice as big around. The nipple on the front can be a distraction but it is probably just a matter of getting used to it. They tend to be either complementary or supplementary to each other. Paired together they make up for the other's weaknesses. Together they will handle any situation.

I thought the long knob would bother me,but after using the pen for about 3 weeks, its not an issue.Not having to worry about capping the pen is super convenient. I wish you guys had the Blue in stock...I would get another one now.

I like the way this pen write-- the fine nib is a typical Japanese nib, more like extra fine than fine. However, the pen nib dries up after about 8 hours of not being used. I have to rinse the nib every time I go to use the pen. Since the manufacturer said that this would keep fluid extra long, I am extra disappointed!

I am a lover of the unusual pen. This and my namiki vanishing point are such pens. The Curidas is everything that was promised. The steel nib is a smooth writer and the pen seems sturdy. It flows easily even after sitting a few days. It feels sturdier than the Vanishing but I like them both. I waited for and am very happy with this product so far.

Couldn’t even put it together. It sprung apart as I tried to put in a cartridge. If I wasn’t so frustrated it might have been comical. Waiting to see about a return without penalty because one part flew behind the dishwasher. I love Platinum but this pen is a disaster.
