Procyon Fountain Pen, Champagne Gold

Platinum Procyon is our favorite pen for precision writing. Less inky than Western fountain pens, the Procyon puts your marks exactly where you want them, whether you choose the 0.5 mm fine nib or the 0.7 mm medium nib. Both options are unusually smooth for their size: the fine glides across paper like most mediums, and the medium is as buttery-smooth as a broad. With a gentle touch, you can achieve very fine lines, and with a firmer press, the nib flexes slightly to deliver more ink.
Several thoughtful features are worth pointing out on this impeccably designed pen. The cap is double-threaded (two parallel threads make up the cap's screw closure rather than one long one), so it opens and closes in a flash. A spring-loaded inner cap keeps ink wet for up to a year. And the easily disassembled feed makes Procyon very simple to clean and maintain.
This champagne gold Procyon is part of the new Luster series, a selection of refined colors introduced in 2020.
Presented in a Platinum gift box with a blue-black ink cartridge. Made in Japan.
WHY BUY IT HERE?
When you choose St. Louis Art Supply for any fountain pen that costs $25 or more, one of our expert technicians hand-checks and adjusts the nib, using high-powered magnification to ensure that the tines are perfectly aligned and there are no manufacturing defects. If necessary, we also use a superfine abrasive to remove any stray metal that can impact the smoothness of your nib. Finally, we clean the pen with our house pen cleaner and make sure that no fibers are stuck in the nib.
This intensive quality-control process offers you peace of mind that other retailers can't match. If you've ever bought a fountain pen from Amazon, you may have noticed that some reviews say it is smooth and others say it is scratchy. The reason is that they do not look at the pen before shipping it out. As a specialized shop with highly trained staff, we go the extra mile to provide a polished experience for every customer.
Look for our green "Tested OK" stamp on your packing slip. It's our way of letting you know that a real person checked your new pen and made sure it's perfect.

We love Platinum because their pens are always very easy for our quality control team to check and adjust.
