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.

Another fine fountain pen by Platinum. This pen has a stainless steel smooth nib and it is as good as a fine gold nib.

Procyon
I got this pen only after a lot of research that suggested it was the at least pretty close to the ideal pen for me, and it turns out that research yielded excellent results. My Procyon in Deep Sea finish with a fine nib is a smooth, enjoyable writer, with an understated, modernized elegance. It's not flashy at all, but once one notices it, the pen really holds the attention. It feels great in my hand, and my enjoyment of writing has never, in my memory, been greater than with this. It is my everyday workhorse and my favorite general-purpose pen, even after trying out pens twenty times as expensive.

Case & 3776
This bourgogne has become my favorite pen.to the point where I rapidly acquired two more (Chartres Blue) and feel very tempted to get more. They are such fantastic value pens and I love the springy nibs. The soft fine nib gets varied reviews but the one I obtained doesn't seem markedly different in softness from the fine or extra fine ones. While in Japan I tested a music nib out of curiosity and thought it was also marvellous (but completely different). It's great that platinum has also made special editions of different interesting colors.

Preppy Highlighter
I got ever color of these preppy highlighters and I love them! The colors are great, I really enjoy the refillable cartridges and the ability to convert the highlighter to use bottled ink. I feel I've really upgraded my work supplies.

The Platinum Procyon is a smooth writing instrument. It feels good on the band and the nib (fine and mid) delivers continuos ink flow with no interruption. It writes clear and precise.

3776 Century
Black Diamond is the latest color I chose to join the half dozen 3776's I already own. I truly love this pen and the soft-fine nib is my favorite. Of all the soft or flex nibs on the market, it is most like a true vintage nib, especially in its responsiveness. These nibs allow me to flex MY creativity and allows for nice thin fines in my flourishes-my own Spencerian-style handwriting appears the way it was intended to look about a century ago, near the time I learnt it. Clearly not a pen for beginners but if you have a practiced hand with flex nibs and value a responsive nib that does what YOU want, you may enjoy this nib as much as I. Great pen in all other aspects, its medium large size is comfortable to hold for long writing sessions as I've got arthritis. The slip and seal innovation does exactly what it advertises; hadn't picked up one of mine for nearly a year, yet the ink was as fresh as if I'd just filled, it wrote perfectly! This pen is already a classic and well deserved. The color and look of the pen is superb, like the Bourgones and Chartes Blues I have the Black Diamond is semi-transparent and the silver trim sets it off beautifully. I believe this soft-fine nib the best flex nib on the market, even if it were double the price (but glad its not), neither do I mind having to supply the converter. Thank you Platinum for such a FANTASTIC line of pens and that incomparable soft-fine nib, their other nibs are a joy too. Thanks also to Pen Chalet for such great prices and fast service.

3776 Nice
I am so incredibly happy with my new pen! It writes better than expected. I had heard that many Japanese pens were a bit scratchy, but not
this pen! I got the Broad nib which is so buttery smooth and writes like a dream. It is by far my most favorite pen out of the 15 I have.

Big fan of this pen. I keep one on my desk at home and one at work. Since I usually like to use colored inks in my pens it’s nice to have a designated pen with appropriate ink for documents and signatures.

3776 Century
Never been disappointed in a 3776. Platinum nibs are excellent. This color is gorgeous and I am very pleased I got it. I use either Platinum or Pilot inks in it and writes well. Even the drier Pelikan ink performs in this pen. I use Medium and Broad nibs.

3776 Century
I both the Platinum 3776 Century with music nib to draw. It looks very wet doing some tests in regular papers but I need more time using the pen in watercolor 100% cotton paper to tell if it will work as I hope. I use another brands with different nibs to create my artwork and I liked the size and the beautiful color and finish of this one.
