The Preppy is a refillable fountain pen with an innovative “Slip & Seal” ink feed system designed with a screw top cap to prevent the ink drying out. Ever popular since its launch in 2007 this series of pens are known for being a true fountain pen with a very reasonable price tag.
Platinum Preppy pens are available in different nib sizes & colours. They all have a clear plastic barrel showing the size & logo with colour coded accents. The medium (05) 0.5mm nib comes in a choice of black red or blue, fine (03) has a wider range of 7 colours which include yellow & violet shades & the latest addition is extra fine (02) with a 0.2mm nib & choice of black, blue or red ink.
The Preppy range have stainless steel nibs & are supplied with one cartridge, alternatively an optional converter could be used with bottled ink. The nibs on these pens can be easily removed which some users say lends them to being converted to an eyedropper (the barrel will take more ink) relatively easily.
All in all these fountain pens provide a smooth writing experience at a very affordable price.
