Not sure anything else raised so much hype, confusion, divisiveness and controversy in the fountain pen world in 2020 (so far). Limited supplies, production/design problems, different perceptions on costs have already created plenty of bandwidth on the various on line forums. But is the Platinum Curidas any good? (for me the title may be a bit of a give away).
I’m guilty. I jumped on the bandwagon of fountain pen fashion. I bought a Platinum Curidas in green with a medium nib. To be honest, when the original pictures came out my interest was piqued, after all I have to others, with which I will lightly compare it, the Lamy Dialog 3 and the Pilot Capless (nee Vanishing Point).
Let’s be honest. It was not just the textured pattern of the Kumpoo limited edition 3776 Century pen from Platinum that made it so popular. It was also the turquoise colour. A colour that did not quite match any of the inks out there. Except …..

Finally I’ve got round to looking at my collection and identifying pens I’m unlikely to use again, mainly through too many pens of the same type (as happens to too many of us). Note all the pens listed will be cleaned (if not already done).
The prices are without P&P as I’m happy to sell internationally. Note for the UK I will be looking at Royal Mail Special Delivery (may just be tracked for those under £100).
