Platinum Prefounte Fountain Pen - Vermilion Orange


In 2007, Platinum launched the Preppy fountain pen, which quickly became one of the most popular entry-level fountain pens among users around the world. The Platinum Prefounte is a slight upgrade to the Preppy; it features the same body with more mature, subdued color options and a metallic clip. Like the Preppy, the Prefounte uses Platinum's own "Slip & Seal Mechanism" that employs a spring in the cap to force an airtight closure around the nib, preventing ink from drying out in this fountain pen for up to a year; this makes this pen is a logical choice for students and for anyone who might be curious about fountain pens but worried about having to deal with maintenance. A sleeker and more professional version of the Preppy, the Prefounte is still comfortable in the hand and accessible for first-time fountain-pen users.
