Customer Reviews

Curidas
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!!

3776 Century
I like a fine point fountain pen and I have one particular use where I needed something "extra fine" and this is it. It's my first Platinum pen and I love it. It writes flawlessly and while I was skeptical about the claim that it pretty much wouldn't dry out, that is absolutely true.

This is a wonderful instrument. Fits the hand very comfortably, the nib, even in extra fine, isn't "scratchy," and I just can't say enough good things about it. To top off the wonderful pen, the good foiks at Pen Chalet got it to me very, very quickly.

This was my first Platinum pen. I got the UEF despite warnings of it having too much feedback for a lot of people. I find it perfect. Not too scratchy, but just a little feedback to let you feel your writing. Great price from Pen Chalet too.

Prefounte
I bought one of these in a local bookshop. It was my first fountain pen purchase and I was instantly hooked. I love the way these pens write. And it is an affordable option for those who aren’t ready to spend $$ on the high end pens. I really wanted to get more of these pens so that I could have a few different color inks, but with the lockdown, I couldn’t get to the bookstore. I found Pen Challet and was so happy to see they are $5 less here than the store. I’ve ordered 5 now and an assortment of ink colors. Very very happy with this product and the quick shipment!

Curidas
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.

Curidas
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?

Curidas
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.

Preppy
Preppys are great little pens: excellent for the money. I've had several. However be warned, the red ink is pretty pinkish. My only problem ever with a Platinum product.

Preppy
I am astonished by how well these cheap $4 pens write. If I'd known about Platinum Preppy years ago when I first attempted to get into fountain pens, I would have been hooked long ago. These write smoothly. No scratchiness. No burping. I converted them into eyedropper pens easily. These pens are a wonderful beginner pen. I'm still a sucker for my Lamy Safari pens, however, these are a nice inexpensive alternative.

This is my first time purchasing a Prefounte pen and using it for grad school. It is absolutely great very stylish pen, very similar to the platinum preppy. Only difference is the style and structure but same concept. Really happy with my purchase.

3776 Nice Lilas
This pen sports a lovely nib and is reasonably priced for 14K. The "packaging," i.e. barrel, cap and section are secondary to the writing aspect.

Bottle Dye (60ml)
I got the blue-black dye ink as a change of pace from Platinum's Classic Forest Black when I was working on crossword puzzles. And that it is.

This is a real-deal iron gall ink, although it's formulated to not be as aggressive to the pen and paper as that used in antiquity. It goes down a deep blue, dries almost immediately to a much brighter blue, then darkens as the iron compounds in the ink become insoluble and precipitate out of solution. The result is permanent markings on the paper. The dye may wash out, but the insoluble iron salts embedded in the paper will remain.

Curidas
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.

Carbon
I use this pen all the time at my desk and I really love it. I'm using the ink that came with it and it flows good, dries quickly and doesn't dry out to fast.
This is not a travel pen and it can not be posted so don't loose the cap. The only dislike is since it is so smooth and sleek I can't index the pen without taking the cap off. I really with the Platinum branding stamp was directly behind the nib.

Curidas
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.

Procyon
I am utterly thrilled with the Platinum Procyon fine nib fountain pen from Pen Chalet. It has a decent weight to it that i enjoy and the nib writes an incredible line. They were out of the converters when I made my purchase so I have not yet been able to use my bottled inks with it, but the cartridges that I purchased with the pen write a beautiful line that I am more than pleased with. There was a hiccup with the shipping but that was all on USPS and not Pen Chalet. As soon as I brought it to their attention they resolved the issue and my pen arrived two days later. Customer service was truly so easy to deal with and I will definitely be ordering from Pen Chalet again soon.

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.
