The pattern derived from the hexagonal shape of the tortoise shells has been appreciated as an auspicious pattern
representing longevity. It often has another pattern represented in the center of the hexagon and Hanabishi is
one example. The chestnut flower, which has been used as a family crest of Japanese aristocratic class in ancient
times, exudes a noble and elegant image.
New limited patterns will be released from the Japan-themed “preppy wa” fountain pen series that has been enjoying
popularity since its launch in 2021. Featuring a total of six patterns, the new models convey the elegance and grace of the Japanese tradition incorporated into a modern design. Each pattern symbolizes a special auspicious sign so that you can choose your own favorite based on the design or meaning.
The preppy series has been well-received since its first appearance in 2007 for its high writing performance while being reasonably priced. The nib made of highly-polished stainless steel with a mixed metal point provides excellent
abrasion resistance, making it the best quality fountain pen series for this price range. It also comes equipped with
the Slip & Seal Mechanism, which prevents the ink from drying out inside the pen even after a year without usage,
providing a stress-free, smooth writing experience at any time.
The quintessential Japanese designs of the new preppy models would be also highly appreciated by international cus-
tomers while the auspicious patterns make them ideal for a casual gift.
This Preppy fountain pen features Platinum’s patented “Slip and Seal” cap design that keeps the nib from drying out for a year or longer without use.
