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!

Fascinating mechanism! The fine nib is a bit finer than western extra fine. The diameter is similar to a Noodlers Ahab. It's a little long with the nib retracted, but just about perfect with the nib extended. The clip doesn't bother my grip, but it's easily removed if it troubles you. Check out the excellent video on the product page, it is spot on.

Impressive pen! Writes well. Has a comfortable fit in the hand. Clip does not get in the way of my writing. Capacity for ink is average, but that just allows me to try various inks with the pen. I purchased the Extra Fine nib. After using this, I think I would purchase the Fine nib if I were to buy again.

Pros: 1. Looks cool, not too industrial, not too classical. 2. Glides effortlessly once the nib softens up after repeated use. 3. Large and bold with a quirky, intricate mechanism for accessing the converter.
Cons: 1. Too long to clip it in pocket. 2. It took a while to soften the nib and to get the ink flowing smoothly.
Overall, it is surprisingly light with a broad grip. If you like the Pilot Vanishing point, you'll like this one, but the writing experience is completely different due to the broad grip and extreme lack of heft.

This pen is incredibly uncomfortable, awkward, bulky, and annoying. Part of the problem may be that I have small arthritic hands,but I have never had this much pain from using a pen before.

This pen doesn't write smoothly either. This really surprised me because you can usually count on Platinum to have incredibly smooth pens.

I also found the innards of the pen to be too much trouble.

I love pens. I love Platinum, but I have never hated a pen more. I'm angry for making a fairly expensive mistake.

These are excellent pens that provide a unique but functional appeal. Filling the pen and changing inks is not as easy as I would like, but it is such a small inconvenience. I recommend watching the video on the Pen Chalet site to save yourself some time. I didn't remove the clip at first, but it is more comfortable without it. Nonetheless, it is one of my favorite everyday pens.

Lots of cool engineering on display with this model. Perfect for high tech pen nerds. Fine nib smooth with a little feedback and good flow with Waterman Mysterious Blue. Fits my hand fine. Possible EDC pen.

Writes really well. I am happy with the Fine nib. Not for the nervous clicky types, if you click it too fast I have seen small ink droplets hit the paper. If treated as a fountain pen then its really great.

Amazing pen.EF nib is very fine yet smooth. The retractable feature is very handy when sketching on location. The grip section is thicker than most pens, so I was worried when I ordered, but it does not bother me at all. An all around winner from Platinum for sure!!

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.
