About the Platinum Balance

The Platinum Balance fountain pen is made with an acrylic resin cap and barrel with a gold plated stainless steel nib. Because of the shape of the nib it is moderately flexible. Choose from opaque resin colors with gold trim or the Platinum Balance cool fountain pens with their transparent cap and barrel and chrome trim.

The Platinum Balance fountain pen is a cartridge fountain pen and one Platinum ink cartridge is included. A Platinum 500 ink converter may be purchased separately for use with bottled fountain pen inks.

First I love Platinum products and have many. This is my second Platinum Balance and it looks like a more expensive pen and writes like one too. Beautiful body colour and gold trim and if one puts in a gold convertor, which I did, it looks amazing. Because the Japanese nibs are finer than European I ordered a medium nib and it is smooth and writes perfectly. Am using Platinum Mix Free Ink 'Aurora Blue' and it is a nice match to the pen. Overall I love this pen. Shipping to New Zealand was fast and efficient.

Did not like the fact that the black is actually a sort of metallic/black plastic blend. Would rather it be just black plastic. But as far as function....a great writer.

I first got the Balance in a Fine nib and it was quite scratchy. Pen Chalet was happy to replaced it to a Medium nib and now the pen writes smoothly. The medium nib is a wet writer, makes it easy to flow on the page. The clear nib is a nice characteristic of the pen, it brings out the colour of the ink when looking at the pen.

The build of the pen is quite solid. The cartridge converter I have is a bit stiff to turn out of the box, might need to do some adjustment to it.

The other thing that I don't like about the pen is that there is a white plastic cover in the cap that is quite out of place compared to the rest of the pen. It does make the pen look a bit cheaper in my opinion. The pen's body is very similar to the Pilot Custom 74 in terms of size and design.

This is a good pen for this price range.

The Balance looks good with writes well. I purchased the Balance for everyday use and it's working out. I made a small adjustment to the steel nib. as a nib meister, I've shaped it to an italic stub, absolutely gorgeous! These a good fountain pens for all users.

Platinum Balance Video



Video Script

This is the Platinum Balance fountain pen. It comes in a blue cardboard sleeve with the Platinum logo here on the top. This sleeve slides off and inside we have a plastic container for the pen.

Included with the pen is the instructional manual for the pen. Since this is a cartridge converter style pen we have an ink cartridge. The Platinum converter is not included with the pen. You can use either bottled inks if you would rather or ink cartridges.

This is the black with gold accents. This is a black resin pen so it is pretty lightweight pen. It has gold accents. We have a gold clip on the pen. Then on the bottom of the cap we have a thicker gold band that runs around the bottom the cap with Platinum engraved on it just above that gold band. Then it just has a plain black barrel. The cap on the pen simply snaps off. You can write with or without the cap posted, whichever you prefer. Between the grip section and the barrel of the pen is a gold band. Then we have a gold tip at the in the end of the pen with a gold-colored stainless steel nib. It has the Platinum "P" engraved onto the pen, on the nib.

To change the ink on this pen you simply unscrew the grip section from the barrel. Then you can insert an ink cartridge that is included or whatever ink cartridge you have or their Platinum 500 converter, purchased separately, if you'd rather use the bottle inks.

This is a very economical pen. It is a great looking pen. Get your Platinum Balance fountain pen at PenChalet.com!
