Cheap Desk Pen Comparison: Platinum Versus Sailor

  1. It sounds like the Platinum is an easy winner! I have to admit I like the design of it better. Not that I dislike the sailor, it’s perfectly nice, but the Platinum looks more unusual with this semi-enclosed nib and the shape that is thicker through the middle.

    I’m not a big fan of the push-in style of cap, either; I miss that resounding ‘click’, somehow satisfying!
