Called the "uroko-mon" or scale pattern, this design forms a series of triangular shapes both in the positive spaces of the figures and the black negative spaces of the ground. It utilizes abalone to give the pen a reflective sparkle of a rainbow of colors, as well as gold and silver dust over a black Urushi base. The gold dust can be seen both in coarse form, making a rougher surface, and in finely pulverized gold dust giving a flat sheen.

The silver has a grey tone which contrasts more subtly with the black base resin of this pen. This cartridge-converter pen is also a wonderful everyday writing instrument.

The Maki-e artwork on this pen is done in the Kaga region of Japan, on the West Coast, the Urushi center of lacquer work with a one thousand year history. The signature of the Ko-en, or artist, is seen in kanji. A nod to the Deco era is seen on both the clip and the nib of this series. This fountain pen sports a playful geometric design on a serious writing instrument.

The Galaxy comes complete with any of Platinum's line of President series 18k two-tone nibs.

Packaging includes an attractive softwood presentation box with kanji lettering, as well as a converter and a unique boot-shaped bottle of Platinum Black ink.
