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.

Got the Cool Blue>F which is a great color and had some nice little details on it I wasn't expecting. Comfortable to use and cannot beat that Platinum nib. Very pleased with this fountain pen.

nice pen, but a tad disappointed so far in the ink flow at the beginning of writing. it doesn't write initially, so I have to make my first mark a second time.

I purchased a Platinum Balance/Cool demonstrator a few weeks back. The first one I was sent had some issues and would not write properly, even after flushing. I contacted Pen Chalet and they quickly sent out another pen, which writes wonderfully. The new pen is now one of my daily writers. Pen Chalet's customer service was top notch, with great communication, and now I have a great pen, too!

I own three Balances in different colors. The fine nib is excellent, with a fair amount of feedback. It's lightweight and comfortable to write with. A very handsome, high quality pen for this price. Note that it does not come with a converter. The Platinum converters are inexpensive and very good quality, but you do have to order them separately.

The pen is truly a 'wine red' color. The website photo makes it looks redder than it actually is - thankfully. Smooth writer and consistent ink flow always!

WOW! Platinum Balance pen in Red Wine color is truly a strikingly beautiful pen that looks and feels much more expensive than I had anticipated. Bought this for a pen to throw around on my desk at work without having to worry if someone used it, but, uh, no. Way to pretty to risk losing. Fine nib is very smooth and is perfect for the Platinum classic black in I decided to pair it with. Pen feels lightweight but balances really nicely after filled. Posts perfectly and feels perfect in my hand for a surprisingly elegant writing experience. Highly recommend, And, of course, Pen Chalet always gets it to me quickly and we’ll packaged.

I really like the Platinum pens. They do not dry out when capped for long periods. Very nice nibs. Lays down a good wet line. The color of the blue has a little bit of a purpleish hue.

A green Platinum Balance was my first purchase from Pen Chalet. I bought it on a whim, just to try a Platinum, which I had not written with before. I am a journalist and, to everyone else’s amusement, have always used a fountain pen to take notes at Press conferences. So a fountain pen is an everyday tool for me and I need one that is comfortable and satisfying to use. The Platinum is now one of my three favorites, together with a 60 year old Parker Duofold, which still works perfectly and has similar mild feedback to the Platinum, despite having a gold nib, and a Montegrappa with a completely different, ultra-smooth experience. I find the variation in different pens is what makes a fountain pen so much more enjoyable than any other writing instrument and infinitely more so than a computer.

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!
