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.

Very cool looking pen. I ordered a fine which is a little too fine for my tastes. The ink flows well and the Platinum nibs are great.

Ink
I have the gold version of the Platinum converter and I find it to be the best of all Japanese converters. Mine gets a full fill on the first try and holds a decent amount of ink, unlike some of the Pilot brand converters. This is well worth the price.

President
I have the burgundy President with a broad nib, which is a well made classic style fountain pen. The converter works great and the broad nib is smooth and consistent with perfect flow, although it's probably more comparable to a European medium. It posts securely and that's how I use it, although that isn't really necessary. This has turned out to be my favorite out of all of my Japanese brand pens. Highly recommended by me.

I have to admit for a cheap pen it writes like a more expensive pen. I just have one draw back and that the clip on the cap breaks easily. but, Over all, it writes like a dream.

Can't go wrong with these pens. I have a this pen in fine, medium and music nibs, all of which perform far above their price point. Well made, have never had a problem with them drying up between uses.

Kanazawa-Haku
Hi folks ...I just purchased the Kanazawa
Platinum Haku Matsu Tora (Pine and Tiger) from
PenChalet and I'm a very happy camper :-)
... The pen itself is magnificent, as one would
expect of a pen created with the gold chirashi
technique. The box is a finely crafted wooden one
and the fountain pen itself can use either
cartridges or liquid ink. I purchased a medium
point and it just doesn't write well, it flows
evenly and smoothly on the paper, inviting you to
think a bit, and write some more.

The PenChalet company were a pleasure to deal
with. Ordering it on the internet was simple and
quick and if this is your first order you may
score a significant discount, making it even
sweeter! The pen, carefully wrapped to prevent
damage, arrived but a few days later and created
a lot of envy among the folks at my office, that
is the ones who knew what a fountain pen is!
That's right, some of my coworkers, in their
20's, had never seen or used a fountain pen!

Anyhow i whole heartedly recommend the purchase
of the Platinum pens and have had a fine
experience dealing with the nice folks at Pen
Chalet and will order from them again.

I purchased the Cool Blue with a Fine nib. It's a beautiful lightweight pen and a smooth writer. The snap cap action is smooth and I can open and close the pen with one hand. I post my pens and this one is well balanced in my hand. I enjoyed writing with this pen so much that I ordered another one in a different color. Can't go wrong with this price.

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.

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.
