Bali Citrus - gColor of the Year of 2018h

Following gNova Orangeh launched last year, a new color gBali Citrush will be released as the gcolor of the year of 2018h for PLAISIR fountain pen series, which have been well received among a wide range of customers since its launch.

We have put particular emphasis on the color development of the alumite finish on the barrel. A fresh citrus color has been brought to life by utilizing the coloring properties of the alumite, realized through elaborated dyeing and polishing processes unique to PLAISIR series. gBali Citrush was named after the image of the colorful fruits of the tropical island of Bali. The vivid yet deep shades of color of the fruits that stand out in the tropical greenery have been reproduced in the fountain pen, creating a distinctive look.

Same as in the past models, it also applies a nib made of a mixed metal while incorporating gSlip & Seal Mechanismh that prevents ink from drying out in the pen even after a year of not using the pen. The fountain pen ensures a smooth writing feel, relieving users from stress. The durable nib and the replacing ink cartridge enable users to enjoy the pen for a long time.

Release date: November 1, 2017



 It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the following problems can result:

1. Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.  
2. Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.  
3. It can be necessary to clean the pen using our Ink Cleaner Kit or even to repair or replace the nib itself if the damage due to dried ink is too severe.  

At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen Company have gone back to the basics to deal with this problem. This is the first fountain pen which has our unique gSlip & Sealh structure in a pen with a screw-type cap. Thanks to this innovation, currently being patented, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness.

  *Pen placed on its side containing a full ink cartridge (1.2cc) at a room temperature.
*The cap should be tightly closed.
