I love my pen. It has been a while since I have used a fountain pen.

Thanks for the excellent customer service.

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.

Color I received does not match what I ordered, writes really well but the color of pen I got I will not use probably give as a gift.

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.

Great. Cheap. Pen. I had one of these in my collection already. They are very light weight. Have a nice size to them. Have a great smooth nib. And best of all, after months of non-use, pull off the cap and it writes beautifully! I have a lot of much more expensive pens in my collection and very, very few of them will write without a little "priming" to get them started writing. (I keep a small glass of water on my desk just for this task.) I actually got this one for my son to add to his collection. Nice pen and you can't go wrong getting one here, from the great folks at Pen Chalet! Better yet, get several and get free shipping!
