A video writing sample from two Platinum soft fine nibs.

For those wondering if Platinum’s soft fine nib has a few tricks up its feed, why yes it does.

    I could sit and watch your handwriting for hours 🙂 Thank you for sharing. I never had any luck with their soft-fine nibs, but maybe I will try again….

    Buy the one you try and like, because they are different from nib to nib. 😀

    Thanks for that. In your last post I love the way the austerity of the printing (with the lower-case u’s) sets off the sensuality of the neo-Spencerian.

    Hi-Yo, Platinum! You and your pens are the stuff of legend, Leigh!

    (What? I just saw the movie! 😉

    That looks a lot different from a Nakaya soft. What’s up with that nib? Does the feed keep up? Have you witched that pen with vintage semi flex powers?

    Your penmanship skills show the fountain pens better than they really are…


    I love your handwriting!

    I’ll be glad if you post something to help us to improve our handwriting!
