All the convenience of a click rollerball but with the smooth writing experience of a fountain pen: introducing the Platinum Curidas retractable fountain pen!
In five attractive colors, the Curidas is pushing the fountain pen world forward with its new design. With its translucent clear resin barrel, you can see all the engineering that went into the Curidas. Instead of a traditional cap, the Curidas uses an internal seal to protect the nib and keep the ink from evaporating when retracted into the pen. The steel nib is available in extra-fine, fine, and medium sizes.
Curidas is a coined term created by combining the Japanese word Kuridasu referring to extending the pen tip and the word Curiosity. This new fountain pen was brought to life to fulﬁll people’s curiosity.
It accepts proprietary Platinum ink cartridges (one blue-black cartridge is included) or a Platinum converter (also included) to fill with bottled ink. A special clip removal tool is also included if you prefer to remove the silver clip.
