If you like to write by hand - and there must be at least a few of you left out there who do - you know that the feel of a fountain pen is unique. Nonetheless, they do have one fundamental practical disadvantage: opening and closing them is almost a ceremonial process with their screw-on caps. What happens if you want a traditional-looking writing implement but also want access to its calligraphic merits as fast as possible? The Platinum Curidas Retractable Fountain Pen happens!
The Platinum Curidas Retractable Fountain Pen is the present-day incarnation of the Platinum Knock, the first knock-type fountain pen created by its maker way back in 1965. It comes in five semi-transparent colors (Prism Crystal, Graphite Smoke, Urban Green, Abyss Blue, Gran Red) and three nibs (medium, fine, extra fine), so you can find the one that fits your style of writing. And yes, it opens and closes at the press of a button, meaning you can operate it single-handed. The perfect fountain pen for the 21st century!
