Pen Showcase: Platinum Preppy, Fine Nib (in Black)

Pen Showcase

Starting a new series on my blog about the pens I have! I was kinda going for a pen review, so that’s basically what it is! I’ll try and highlight things I like and dislike, and then things I’ve heard from other people (probably other reviews, or the Pen Addict).

And finally I wrote some pangrams down on a little Rhodia Dot Pad I got:

Pen Showcase 2 - Pangrams

I wrote them on different Rhodia pads. Here are the two pads together!

Another #PenShowcase will be up on my blog soon! This time I used the #PlatinumPreppy, fine nib in black!

I bought this pen because I heard good things about it on the Goulet Pens podcast, so I bought it on JetPens here. I also watched this how-to convert video, so I also bought these O-rings and silicone grease on Goulet Pens.

I first got these pens from my good friend Rebecca; she came back from Japan and gave them to me, and I had never heard of them before! I did end up buying refills and other colors from JetPens, so you can get this pen here.
