Very nice pen. Just the right weight for me. Good for everyday use.
If you use cartridges, you need to remember that Platinum pens use only Platinum cartridges.

This is a solid, durable travel pen that does not mind getting knocked around. I had bought this in a Fine nib, not realizing this was a Japanese nib, producing a narrower line. Platinum makes great interchangeable nibs, so I put a Medium Preppy nib on the Plaisir, and it works fine. The orange color is very distinctive.

This is my new favorite replacement for the Pilot Metropolitan. The grip is much more comfortable than the Metro and the transparent grip gives one a good view of the ink you're using. The nibs are easily swapped with the Platinum Preppy, so it's possible to expand one's nib options.

This completes my Plaisir collection. I now own all of the colors! I mainly use these with Diamine shimmering inks. They write smoothly and I have no problems with ink feed. I will say however, that with organics studios sheening inke it just GLIDES !

I purchased the gunmetal version of this pen. It’s very shiny, almost mirror finished. I did not expect that. That being said, it looks fine.

The pen is light weight, and reasonably sized. It works well posted or unposted. The snap cap is really satisfying to operate. It came with a Platinum Black cartridge, and can be used with Platinum cartridges, platinum converters, or the standard international adapter. I’m using platinum blue black cartridges in mine.

The flow is really great in this pen - just slightly wet. The nib is nice and fine, which I like, and it’s incredibly smooth. I have pens that cost 3mtimes as much as this that aren’t as smooth. It’s really incredible.

It writes smoothly, one of the best steel nibs I have ever used (smoother than Monteverde One Tool, Parker Sonnet and Sheaffer Prelude, on par with Kaweco Lilliput). However, the nib does not have the barrel matching color as it used to be (just a steel color...), which is a huge let down for me... But when I mentioned my disappointment to Pen Chalet customer service, and they gave me an offer I can't refuse. 6 stars for the customer service.

I am building a collection of Platinum pens and this Plaisir is one of the lower priced pens but the quality is really quite good for the price point. I ordered the silver metal pink and it is beautiful. Is a fine nib which is a bit finer than I like because of Japanese nibs being really fine but really Ok. I am using a Platinum pink cartridge ink in the pen as it seems to fit better than the convertor. Still a bit of conflicting information in the pen world about the Preppy and Plaisir using a convertor. My solution is that I use cartridges in the Preppy and Plaisir and convertors in the Balance and the Cool. All Platinum products. I like this pen enough to have two of them. Just added another colour. It is good to choose one company sometimes and learn all about that company and its products. Trying to be a user and not as much a collector. That doesn't always work though as Pen Chalet has such good specials on other items.:) Very happy with Pen Chalet and their responsive service.

I prefer the platinum preppy to the plaisir. This feels too tinny and the nib too insecure.

FAQs about the Platinum Plaisir

Q:
What are the sizes of the F and M nibs--0.3mm and 0.5mm, respectively? Thinner, wider?
Asked on Jan 11 2017 by Rachel
A:
Yes the Fine is 0.3mm and the Medium is 0.5mm on the Platinum Plaisir nib.
Q:
Are the nib colors as shown in pictures, which is colored for certain ones? The drops own states "stainless steel". A bit confusing. I prefer non-colored nibs.
Asked on May 27 2016 by Verano
A:
They are stainless steel but used to be colored. Platinum has stopped coloring the nibs and so we have some of the older pens in stock that are colored to match the pen and then the newer pens that are a silver color nib. If you want to request a silver color nib we can make sure you get one.
Q:
New to pens. Can you use the cartridge as is or do you have to get a converter? How does that work?
Asked on Dec 19 2015 by Linda
A:
The Platinum Plaisir fountain pen comes with an ink cartridge. You buy more of the Platinum ink cartridges for refills and it only takes the Platinum brand. You can also buy a Platinum 500 ink converter for the pen and then use bottled fountain pen inks.
Q:
Does this pen come with a converter
Asked on Apr 30 2015 by William
A:
No, the Platinum Plasir fountain pen does not come with a converter, only an ink cartridge. The Platinum 500 converter will fit the pen if you wish to purchase it separately.

Platinum Plaisir Video



Video Script

This is the Platinum Plaisir fountain pen. It comes in a wide range of colors. This is the red version of the Plaisir pen. It comes with chrome accents on the pen. We have a chrome clip on the pen with a red stripe running through the center of the chrome clip. You can see the profile of the clip. It is just a standard clip on the cap of the pen. Then there's a large chrome band at the bottom of the pen or the bottom the cap. We have the Plaisir logo and Platinum Japan on the backside with some other decorative engravings around the band. It has a shiny metallic finish to it. It is an actual metal pen but it's pretty lightweight for a metal pen.

The cap on the pen simply snaps off. The pen doesn't post real well. You can set the cap on the pen but there is nothing to told the cap on. So if you'd rather write without the pen posted you can do that as well. Now the grip section on the pen is just a clear transparent grip section. So as the ink flows through this section of the pen you can see the ink in the pen.

The other thing is pretty cool about the Plaisir pen is the nib. The nib on the pen will match whatever color the rest of the pen is. So if you have a red pen you're going to get a red nib. If it's a yellow pen it's going to have a yellow nib which is pretty cool. I like the different colors on the nibs on the Platinum Plaisir fountain pen. Note: The nib now comes in silver on each of the pens and no longer matches the color of the pen.

To change the ink on the Platinum Plaisir pen you simply unscrew the nib section from the barrel. Included with the pen is going to be one ink cartridge. There's no converter with the pen. Included is just simply an ink cartridge. So you can replace that ink cartridges other colors if you would rather do that.

This is a fairly inexpensive pen but it's a sharp-looking and a great value. Get your Platinum Plaisir fountain pen at PenChalet.com!
