Platinum
If you are looking for a Platinum item not listed on our website contact customer service. We are often able to get Platinum pens and inks not listed.

Platinum has been making fine writing instruments of over 90 years. Founded in since 1919 by Shunichi Nakata, this Japanese pen company is well respected for their fine nibs and maki-e art pens. The company was originally named Nakaya seisakusho which means manufacturer but renamed to Platinum Fountain Pen Co along with its logo which became a motif of earth.

After WWII the company changed its name from Platinum Fountain Pen Company to Platinum Industry Company only to change the name back to Platinum Fountain Pen Company in 1962.

Platinum fountain pens are designed not to do not dry out when they are left capped over long periods of time. Platinum pens also create the cartridge style fountain pen.

Most Platinum pens come with a 1 year warranty. Warranty information is included with each Platinum pen. For details on a specific Platinum pen fee free to ask.

Love this pen! Very inexpensive but writes like a dream. I have it in an antique pen-holder on my desk and it seems to be my go to pen now.

I bought this on a whim because it looked something from an old movie. I truly did not expect to be much more than pretty desk pen for my non-fountain pen friends to enjoy. I was pleasantly surprised by the pen. It writes beautifully, fits my hand very well and I am completely enamored by it.

3776 Nice Lilas
I am absolutely in love with this pen. Its inner box looks a bit flimsier than the regular #3776 Century but the pen is perfect. It comes with a silver converter (which I swap out for a gold one) and has a nice weight to it, the nib despite being a Fine writes like butter.

Procyon
I bought this pen with absolutely no knowledge of the Platinum line, the bright colors of the Procyon line catching my eye. This is hands-down the smoothest steel nib pen I own. It has a smooth finish that makes writing comfortable. My orange combined with Krishna Jungle Volcano almost seemed to have been made for each other. With this pen, you get an amazing smooth writer for an extremely reasonable price.

Very nice pen. Just the right weight for me. Good for everyday use.
If you use cartridges, you need to remember that Platinum pens use only Platinum cartridges.

I really love this pen!! The design is so classy and comfortable to hold. I love that it’s long and slender. I heard of it through Jane Davenport - but it was much more expensive through her website. Shipping was very quick and easy, and their email afterwards to make sure I was happy was prompt and sincere.
As for the pen’s performance: I absolutely love it. I am an artist, and have been using it to line my work. When it dries, it’s true to its word when it they say it doesn’t smear (which is nice; I’ve tried pens who promised the same thing and definitely smeared no matter how long I gave them to dry). I also have been using it to write notes with. The pen tip is fine so it’s great for small detail, and the ink comes out steady; I’m able to color large sections because of the excellent release of ink. I only got the one ink cartridge and have had it for some time now and it’s lasted quite a while!
I know it’s difficult buying pens and art supplies online, so I hope this was helpful!!

I always liked platinum pens..This one for the value it is exceptional. It feel very comfortable in the hands and the mat finish is easy to grip. It has a "nice" feedback on a fin nib. I would recommend this pen.. very nice..

Modern Maki-e
This is a beautiful pen and it has an 18 k gold nib that writes extraordinarily well--gllides over the page. It is very light and one can use it for hours. Pen Chalet also sold it for a nice price. And there is a person in consumer service named Jennifer who is a pleasure to deal with.

Procyon
Great colors! The metal barrel gives this pen a substantial feel. The matte finish is very attractive. I really like the Platinum "slip and seal" design. It's so nice to pick up a pen that hasn't been used for a while and have write a perfect line! This pen looks, feels and writes like a much more expensive pen. Did I mention color? I got the "Persimmon" (so far) and love the mid- century modern shades. Perhaps yellow will be my next purchase at Pen Chalet.

Izumo Sumiko Taka Maki-e
I love the craftsmanship and uniqueness of this pen. It has a very hand-crafted feel to it and the sense that personal human effort went into its creation. The design in relief on the barrel gives it an authentic feel. The heft of the pen is perfect--really substantial which I like. The nib is tuned well and I love the way it writes. Overall, I can't be more pleased with this selection.

3776 Nice Lavende
A gorgeous pen. The color is probably the best shade of violet I've ever seen in a pen. The design is great as the ridges provide a great tactile experience just holding the pen. The nib will be great for some and so so for others. The flow and function is perfect out of the box but again, it's a very tactile writing experience. Kind of like a freshly sharpened pencil where you can feel the texture of the paper as you write. Some will love it while others will want a buttery smooth experience.

Plaisir
This is a solid, durable travel pen that does not mind getting knocked around. I had bought this in a Fine nib, not realizing this was a Japanese nib, producing a narrower line. Platinum makes great interchangeable nibs, so I put a Medium Preppy nib on the Plaisir, and it works fine. The orange color is very distinctive.

This does exactly what I need it to do. I converted it to an eyedropper and filled it with sailor highlighter ink. Now it highlights and looks cool doing it.

I've tried many lower priced fountain pens over the last year, and I keep coming back to this one. It is perfect, and its' low price lets me experiment with less safe inks without being too concerned for the pen's safety.

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.

President
I have used this burgundy Platinum President with a medium nib that writes like an American fine as is typical with Japanese fountain pens. That is exactly what I wanted. This pen has a beautiful nib that writes without tooth. (I love tooth, but sometimes a different feel of nib to paper is just as enjoyable for me.) I don't know how to describe the nib's feel when writing, but I love it. It's different in a subtle way that I can't describe, it just is for me. It's a rigid nib; however, I think I see a little line variation, just a little bit, and enough that it is interesting to me. I waited to write this review because I wanted to try different papers and different inks in this pen. The President has handled everything so well. I've constantly used it because I want to keep writing with it, again and again and again. And then some more. The nib seemed to break in and feel smoother and wetter after a few days of writing with it. The plastic barrel and cap don't feel or look cheap to me. I have small hands, but I've written long letters without experiencing fatigue or discomfort because of the President's size. I have another Platinum, a 3776 Century Sai whose medium (like an American fine) nib has lovely tooth. These pens' nibs, to me, are not at all the same. I love them both and enjoy their different qualities. I waited a long time to save up to get a President. I feel so fortunate to finally have one.
