A Superior Ink And Pen Duo From Platinum

03/26/2017

This might sound like a crazy risk, but I filled a Platinum Plaisir with Platinum Carbon Ink months ago and left it idle on my desk. When the pen got a taste of freedom and took a stroll around some junk paper, it wrote well from the first mark. No skipping. No hesitation. Just a clean, black line, no different from when it was initially inked. That Slip & Seal cap really works!

Inked For A Year

Anderson Pens padded my purchase of ink samples and I am not sure whether to be thrilled or overwhelmed. There are twenty-seven of the little suckers, more than enough for a year’s worth of reviews. What’s an inkophile to do?

Even my workhorse fountain pens are freaking out at the task ahead. Just think how many baths they will have to take! They have suggested a dip pen might speed the testing process. Does that make them shirkers? You bet, but that doesn’t make them wrong. It may well be the best solution to completing the task in a reasonable amount of time. Any other ideas?
