And the pen that holds it!
My first new fountain pen in years, a Platinum Prefounte in “night sea” dark blue.
Came with a blue cartridge, but I got a piston converter with it (almost cost as much as the pen! Lol)
0.5mm nib supposedly, which to me would be an ‘Fine’ nib, but it writes like an ‘Medium’. Which is a pleasant surprise for me, I like the broader line. Pen is smooth writting, and comfortable. Nice in the pocket, cap is very secure for just a snap on. Been carying it clipped to the cover on my leather field notes cover that I got recently.
Cap has a rubber boot in it, that seals around the nib and feed, they claim 1 year of laying capped with no ink loss. Hopefully I won’t let it lay thst long although unfortunately I have done so with some of my pens before. But I will leave it a while at some point, look forward to seeing if it doesn’t dry out.
Filled it with a new ink sample, a silver, Diamine Snow Storm. I like it! I see a bottle in my future.
Ink and pen are a great combo so far for long slow writting, without the nib drying out. Took notes in church this last Sunday, and at times I had it uncapped for id say a good 5 to 7 minutes if not longer, without writting, and it didn’t dry up!
Carrying it with a very fitting notebook, the silver version of Field Notes group 11, with silver dot grid, and gilt edges.
