The Platinum Plaisir fountain pen features a cap which prevents ink from drying, enabling smooth writing even after no use for a whole year. The outside body is made of aluminum and has a special matte finish. This fountain pen has a matte teal green barrel and cap, silver trim, a stainless steel nib, and accepts proprietary Platinum cartridges (one is included) or a Platinum converter (sold separately).
Platinum has released three previous special edition Plaisir colors: Nova Orange (2017), Bali Citrus (2018), and Black Mist (2019). Now in its fourth year, Teal Green characterized by its vivid bluish green color will be added to the lineup. The Black Mist pen released in 2019 boasts an elegant look with a smooth and pleasant texture achieved by applying a blast processing. This time, Platinum has selected a bluish green color for the body while leaving the same texture. The new pen gets its name Teal Green from the unique reflection of the surface that evokes an image of duck’s feather. A beautiful contrast of the blue-green color on the body gives an elegant impression to the pen, making it ideal for daily use as well as a gift.
The Teal Green color comes from the duck commonly seen in North America with deep bluish-green feathers around its head. The color was also often picked up as a motif in Japan’s ancient “Manyoshu” poetry anthology.
