Platignum school pen (italic), late 1970s

  1. This brought back memories! I remember using these at school. They were red though. You weren't allowed one until your teacher decided your pencil handwriting was good enough. It was a right of passage.

  2. i have one of those pens but cannot find a cartridge that fits it. can you get an ink converter that would do the job?

  3. What cartridges do you use, or do you use a converter. I have not used mine in 30 years and feel it is now time to get it out :-)

  4. Hi Stan, I find standard (short) international cartridges fit in mine. Diamine, J.Herbin and Private Reserve all do them if you want good ink, or if you just want to doodle in everyday black or blue they should be available at any stationery retailer. I suspect the barrel may be a bit too short for most converters, though.
