Platinum Procyon Plover on the Wave Maki-e Fountain Pen
This pen is lovingly used, but in excellent condition. It comes complete with box and papers. It is equipped with a Steel Fine nib.
This limited-edition pen features beautiful maki-e artwork on the barrel. “Maki-e” is a combination of the Japanese words for “sprinkle” and “paint,” referring to the technique of lacquering a surface with detailed images and metallic powders.
Named for one of the brightest stars in the night sky, the Platinum Procyon pen is designed to brighten your writing experience with its sleek body, convenient filling mechanism, and smooth nib. It was the winner of the ISOT 2019 grand prize for functionality.
The Procyon features Platinum’s patented “Slip and Seal” cap design that keeps the nib from drying out for a year or longer without use. This makes it ideal for new fountain pen users and people who like to switch pens frequently.
- Glossy lacquered barrel with maki-e artwork.
- Smooth stainless steel nib.
- Slip and Seal cap that prevents dryout for over a year without use.
- Innovative feed mechanism that requires the nib to only be submerged up to the breather hole when filling with bottled ink. This helps avoid messes and lets you use all of the ink in the bottle.
