The geometric pattern depicting the crests of waves is thought to have originated in ancient Persia and introduced to
Japan via the Silk Road during the Asuka period (592-710). The name comes from the pattern used in the costume
for “Seigaiha (waves of the blue ocean)” program of bugaku, which is a Japanese classic court dance. The waves of
water are also known as a symbol representing good luck.
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.
