The Platinum Procyon fountain pen is named after the brightest star in the constellation of Canis Minor, one of the 21 first magnitude stars. The matte pearl orange aluminum body offers an excellent weight balance when posted, and the screw cap features Platinum’s “Slip & Seal Mechanism” that helps prevent the ink from drying out in the pen. The newly designed feeder helps you fill your pen when only a small amount of ink is left in the bottle, without having to submerge the entire nib. It comes with a smooth writing steel nib and a Platinum ink cartridge (converter sold separately).

Note: We have mixed stock of the normal version of this pen, and a special 100th anniversary version with an imprinted logo on the back of the cap (see picture). We are unable to honor special requests and cannot guarantee which version you may receive.
