Wow! I didn't think it flexed. Though as you said, it isn't good for the pen. Not a pen I could see myself buying, but interesting to know that that brand still exists. My dad has pile of Platignums from the 70's (I think). I didn't know they resurrected the brand.

The Goulet's announced they would be carrying them a few weeks back and I jumped at the chance. I think the brand never really died off but was absent from the states for a while.

Ah. So it isn't the same rejuvenation type as Conklin or Chilton...

Thanks for the video! I'm checking that one off my list...the design is quite ugly imho.
