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.

Pen Chalet is an Authorized Dealer of Platinum pens and writing instruments.

Customer Reviews

Platinum Limited Edition Maki-e Procyon
On first glance, I thought the pen appeared stiff and very machine-made. I still think it looks machine-made, with a screen printed maki-e motif (Plover over the waves). The pen felt solid and comfortable in my hand, though, so for the price I wouldn't be at all displeased with just that. I set it to "get acquainted" with some of my more modern, industrial pens, and that made all the difference. It absolutely shines there, and I'm very happy with it.

Platinum Curidas
I love this pen. It’s quirky and a bit fussy but doesn’t bother me at all. The nib is a gem. Doesn’t look like much but has the right balance of smoothness / feedback. The thickness is also very comfortable in my hands

Glad they have these at PenChalet for my cheap Platinum Preppy collection and other pens that stingy Platinum won't provide converters for.

Platinum 3776 Century
Rich flow and beautiful. You can
Barely tell it’s green though. I’m normal it looks black. I do strongly recommend this product.

Platinum Plaisir
I know it's technically an upgraded Preppy, but it feels much more over all satisfying than its cheaper brethren. It should be able to take a lot of abuse. The black mist version has a pebbled texture too.

Platinum Ink
It's a bespoke converter for a Platinum product. It just works. There's no agitator like in the cartridges so ink may get stuck on the sides easier and subsequently starve the feed.

Platinum 3776 Century
I am loving the ultra-extra fine nib, it's smooth and clear and a much more appropriate size for practicing the Palmer method on lined paper. The color is a very dark blue except in the light, the gold trim is my standard preference. The nib is a much paler yellow than my Sailor 14k, for whatever reason. I don't like the balance when posted, but I never do with any of my pens actually. Great deal, very happy. If you're looking for a great tiny little nib, can't go wrong here.

Platinum 3776 Century
I've long had my eye on the Platinum 3776 Century, and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. The 14kt gold nib (fine) is very fine indeed, and a pleasure to write with. I find it a light pen in weight, but well balanced and comfortable to hold, even when capped. I chose the black with gold trim, and I love that look. Very happy that this is now in my collection.

Platinum Carbon
I wanted a fountain pen to write a very fine line with waterproof ink for sketching and journaling. I now have 50+ pens of all shapes and nib types inked up. My carbon desk pen is still my favorite and most reliable for sketching and jotting notes. The line is smooth and fine. This pen never skips, blobs, or dry starts even when it hasn't been used in a few weeks. It also doesn't clog with waterproof Carbon ink in it. It lives up to all the rave reviews I read about it.
