The Platinum Preppy series, which has gained popularity since its first release in 2007. Its attraction is largely attributed to its writing performance style and remarkably low price. This time, the natural beauty of stainless steel is brought to the forefront by brightening the nib while obtaining a higher quality and performance. Also, by changing the ink color recognition from the nib color to the core color, it prevents error when using a variety of colors, and offers convenience to the user. Additionally, the graphic design of the body has been renewed: “Fine” is printed as “03 F” and “Medium” as “05 M,” facilitating the width recognition. Alike existing “preppy” models, it applies “Slip & Seal Mechanism” that prevents ink from drying out in the pen, even after a year without usage. It provides a smooth writing experience at anytime. By replacing the ink cartridge, users can enjoy the pen for a long time. With silicon grease or o-ring, you can even turn the Preppy into an eyedropper.
