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.

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.

Mixable Mix-Free Bottled(60ml)
I received this bottle of Platinum Mix Free Earth Brown ink free under the ink points program - spend a certain amount over time and get free ink! The Earth Brown is a lovely, rich color with such nice shading. It flows freely in the several pens I've tried it in so far. It is easy to fill from the bottle, too.

Plaisir
This is my new favorite replacement for the Pilot Metropolitan. The grip is much more comfortable than the Metro and the transparent grip gives one a good view of the ink you're using. The nibs are easily swapped with the Platinum Preppy, so it's possible to expand one's nib options.

3776 Kumpoo
Thank you Pen Chalet! This pen is gorgeous in photos and breathtaking in person. One of the inks that's a perfect match is Diamine Marine. So - get a bottle of that and get your Kumpoo while you still can. I love turning it so it catches the light. The 3776 series are pens that always write when you pick them up. My Soft Medium nib is just what I love. Extremely highly recommended. Pen Chalet as well.

3776 Kumpoo
The 3776 Kumpoo looks beautiful in photos and even more gorgeous in real life. It truly lives up to all the hype. The cap band is molded and is another standout feature from the standard model. I got mine with the SM nib. The nib offers a nice bit of softness so you get some bounce in your writing. It's one of my favorite pens.

3776 Kumpoo
The Kumpoo is a standard Platinum 3776 pen. Therefore, perfect in every way. The soft-medium nib tracks ink in just the right amount to suit my needs. Where the Kumpoo differs from other Platinum special editions is in the texture of the barrel. Wavy grooves extend from the barrel threads toward the heel, terminating subtly as if a wind were softly fading away. That’s what gives the pen its unique character and it’s name—“balmy breeze” in English. Another set of grooves extend from the cap ring toward the hat. So when the cap is posted the effect doubles. Even if this kind of palaver doesn’t mean anything, the pen stands out as an excellent choice for daily use under all circumstances.

The Kumpoo is a Limited Edition version of the 3776 Century by Platinum. The 3776 Century is on the top 10 fountain pen list of many pen enthusiasts. A highly desirable pen, especially the nib. And the merchant, Pen Chalet, is at the top of the top Retailers list!

3776 Demonstrator
I bought this Platinum Century 3776 Sai fountain pen a few years, ago, and I love to use it. The subtle feedback from the nib is sublime. One of my favorite fps. I live the cap's nib's drying out gizmo - it works.

Plaisir
This completes my Plaisir collection. I now own all of the colors! I mainly use these with Diamine shimmering inks. They write smoothly and I have no problems with ink feed. I will say however, that with organics studios sheening inke it just GLIDES !

Izumo-tamenuri
Just a beautiful pen. Understated, but so smooth in the hand, and very smooth on paper. No urushi pen is going to be cheap, but Platinum does a very nice job on their Izumos, so the price seems fair.

3776 Century
I picked up this pen with a music nib and it writes great! No real spring in the nib but it’s very smooth with a crisp line when held correctly to the paper. The wetness of the nib is just about perfect for me. It’s tuned extremely well out of the box. The blue color of the material has a very rich depth to it that’s impressive. It’s also very light and excellent for long writing sessions. It’s one of my favorite pens! Every collector should have at least one!

Cartridge(10pk) Dye
I bought the blue/black cartridges. The color is quite blue, but I like it. The ink does have some flow problems, but it doesn’t bleed through cheap paper, which I love.
