My new favorite pen for sketching is the Platinum Cool. I bought it from my favorite pen retailer, The Goulet Pen Company I chose the clear fine point. It’s a little over $40, so that’s more than the Lamy Safari, which I’ve been using a lot and own 2 (plus the Lamy Al-Star). But that price includes the cartridge converter, which is usually about $7.
What is so “cool” (ha ha) about it is that it is very slightly a flex pen. I could never get the hang of the Ahab Flex. Here is the pen and some example lines:
The variability of the lines makes it very useful for drawing.
I will be ever grateful to the Urban Sketcher in whose writings I first saw mention of The Goulet Pen company. They are great. Be sure to see Brian’s helpful tutorial videos and the interesting blog.
