Platinum Curidas: Coming Soon

The new retractable fountain pen by Platinum, known as the “Curidas”, will be arriving soon! I know everyone is super excited to see how this pen will write and feel. This will be one of the first retractable fountain pens at a lower price point as well, which is also exciting! Even though the bodies of the pen are familiar, there is still a lot to be excited by!

As we all know, one of the common issues people had with the vanishing point was the clip getting in the way, but with the Curidas they have it so it comes with a tool to take off the clip!

The colors it comes in are Gran Red, Abyss Blue, Urban Green, Graphite Smoke, and Prism Crystal. It has three nib options: extra fine, fine, and medium. It takes Platinum cartridges and either the Platinum Converter 500 or 700. The nib is a new nib featuring a stainless steel nib, which is one of the reasons it’s a bit more affordable. It is removable as well.

The bodies are plastic, but the hardware inside is actually metal. It also features a spring inside to operate the retractable part. It’s said that it’s almost similar to the size of the TWSBI Go spring.

The name of the pen is two words combined. “Curious”, which is English, and the Japanese word, “kuridasu”, meaning “to let out”. And we are definitely curious!

They are up for pre-order on our website, and we also welcome you to stop by our store when they arrive! Keep an eye out on our social media to see when they arrive!
