- SLIP & SEAL MECHANISM
Platinum Pen Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Toshiya Nakata) will launch the “Ultra-fine 02EF” nib from its “PREPPY” fountain pen series on October 25, 2014. Since its launch in 2007, the PREPPY series has grown in popularity among a wide variety of people owing to the remarkably low price. The cumulative shipments have reached approximately 5,300,000 units on a worldwide basis.
We have added the “Ultra-fine” nib to our lineup in response to customers’ requests for pen nibs suitable for fine writing on personalized items, such as diaries or portable schedules. Among various other writing instruments, this new nib provides an exceptional performance in writing fine letters, which allows clear writing in a limited space such as in a notebook or diary while enabling one to enjoy the smooth writing unique feeling of a fountain pen.
A sensitive process is required in producing the Ultra-fine nibs. The final process has been manually completed in a similar procedure to the many luxury fountain pens so as to realize a smoother writing that can be expected for the very reasonable price. Alike existing PREPPY models “Fine 03F” and “Medium 05M,” the new product also applies “Slip & Seal Mechanism” that prevents ink from drying out in the pen, even after a year without usage. It provides smooth writing anytime. The nib, made of a mixed metal, provides a point excellent in abrasion resistance. By replacing the ink cartridge, users can enjoy the pen for a long time.
