About the Platinum Izumo

The Platinum Izumo fountain pens are made from Urusi lacquer, a technique that goes back to the Stone Age. This timeless art has been a part of Japanese culture and history for centuries. The Urushi lacquer that is performed by experienced craftsmen creates a beautiful pen that will increase over time with use.

The pantheons of Japan gathered once a year in Izumo Taisha Japan, one of Japan's most ancient and important shrines. Izumo means the cloud is heavenward or in other words progress and creation where prevalent. The Platinum Pen Company founder, Shunichi Nakata, was born in Izumo where this history took place. We make these products of the clouds that will look heavenward, Platinum Pen creates the birth of a new brands called ‘IZUMO’.

This is the Platinum Izumo fountain pen. It comes in a nice sturdy wood box. That's the logo on the top I am assuming, I don't read Japanese. The top of the box lid lifts off and inside we have the fountain pen along with the other items that are included. We have a piece of paper that is included with it.

It is a cartridge converter style pen, so one ink cartridge and the converter is included with the pen. Platinum has the proprietary cartridges, so you have to use their cartridge or converter. And there is also a Japanese-style carrying case. This simply unwraps, you can slide your pen in, and wrap the pen and put the little piece of bone in to hold the top of the case shut. Also included with the pen is the Use and Care Guide for the pen.

This is the Platinum Izumo fountain pen. This pen is made of Urushi lacquer. It is a nice, shiny, glossy finish. And it has a gold clip on the pen. You can see the Platinum logo there at the top of the clip and just a small, thin gold band that is almost hidden inside the top of the cap that holds the clip on.

The cap is threaded and unscrews and it comes with an 18 karat gold nib. You can see the President logo engraved on the nib of the pen and you can see the feed there on the backside. To change the ink on the pen, you simply unscrew that grip section from the barrel of the pen and then you can insert either the cartridge or the converter, whichever you would prefer.

Great looking fountain pen. I like the weight and the balance of the pen. You can be posted if you would like to but it is really not meant to and doesn't stay on well. I think that it is a little top-heavy with that post in and it's big enough to write without the pen posted. Great looking fountain pen. Really like the way it looks and writes.
