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.

60ml
My bottle was Forest Black, and came with enough ink for one pen filling. It was reasonably easy to clean out. Also came with the original box.

3776 Nice Lavende
This is a gorgeous, gorgeous pen that I bought at an excellent price from PenChalet. I love the 3776 line of pens, and the lavender color of this one made it irresistible. I recommend it to anyone who likes a medium sized pen with a very smooth 14K nib at this price point.

Very helpful for shading my cartoons, and for using with a lettering stencil. I bought 2, and will eagerly order more of them when needed.

Classic (60ml)
This ink is wonderful stuff. It's very permanent, so be careful. But it goes on the page as a lavender, but then dries to a deep purple with some excellent shading. I was a new comer to pigmented inks and dubious since they require a bit more nib cleaning, but this is an excellent product. I've used it in stubs and in a fine nib; it shades nicely.

Classic Sample(4ml)
Classic Cassis Black, now one of my fave REDS. Currently in an old Pelikan stub calligraphy, and it continues to inpress with daily use. Those of us "into reds" will appreciate the solid and somehow nuanced line laid down, and the fatter, the better! KUDOS to Pen Chalet for offering these "tasters" for $3.50. Expensive ink, but real pretty. The tester-vial will load my Pelikan piston about 3 or four times, and good to the last drop.

3776 Jupiter Ebonite
14k M nib
This is a nice pen, and my second attempt to figure out why some people love Platinum pens (my first was a Platinum 3776 with an EF nib; not a good choice for someone who doesn't know what a Platinum EF nib is).
The brown and black ebonite body is very well manufactured. The threads are smooth and precise. There is a slight step on the cap between the gold band and the open end, which creates an unusual sensation when handling the pen while capped. Also, the brown and black combination may not appeal to everyone. It does not have a striking appearance, even though it is polished to a high gloss.
The pen has no noticeable ebonite smell.
The nib has a beautiful writing feel. I'm much happier with the HM nib than the EF.

Cartridge Adapter
These adapters are convenient because otherwise one is limited to the Platinum proprietary system. Either just the available colors or waiting for an empty Platinum cartridge to clean out and then refill with the color you want. With this product you can use any brand of international cartridges

3776 Century
I am a fan of the 3776 line of Platinum. They are a good value, come with a variety of nib sizes, they have the great Slip/Seal caps to prevent ink drying out. They are light and comfortable for my hand and the Bourgogne color is striking. I own 4 of this model with different bibs and colors.

Ink
No complaints. Reasonably priced, does it's job well. Have used it only a few weeks to check for wear and tear effects.

I went through a lot of issues trying to get the shipment outside the US and Ron was there all the while sorting out the problems and I'm grateful for his support (in spite of my many emails and calls to him with loads of probably impertinent questions and difficulties I was having).

Certainly recommend the product.

Definitely recommend PenChalet.com for all related purchases

3776 Century
I am in love with the pen, which is, I'll admit, at the higher end of my pen budget. It writes like a dream. I wish it was a little more fun to look at but really, I can go into any meeting anywhere and it is just fine (and I can put fun colored ink in it).

3776 Nice Lavende
This is my second 3776 Nice - I have the Lilas and had to have this Lavande when I saw it. The nib is awesome - springy and perfect. The pen feels well made. And it is stunningly beautiful.

Izumo-tamenuri
A beautiful fountain pen. I have a fine nib, and it has become my favorite to write with. The craftsmanship is just exquisite. I like the understated look of the pen. A bit of warning, it is recommended by the Platinum not to post the pen,as this may mar the finish of the barrel. Otherwise, a true gem!

3776 Century
I have had my eye on one of these for the past year. I have had no experience with any of the Japanese Big Three fountain pens up to this point. This pen is terrific: substantial feeling and of obvious high quality; It is easily in the same league as my Franklin-Christoph, Edison and yes, even Pelikan pens. Its crowning achievement over the others is the 14 Ct. 585 gold nib as OEM at their steel nib pricing!

Do not be fooled, this is not "just another black pen" in my opinion. I generally avoid black pens, other than some vintage. This color is aptly named: it is a stunning semi-translucent black beauty. However, my real interest lay in that Soft Fine nib. Kudos to the Chalet for actually stocking this nib across much of the 3776 series of pens.

I flushed the nib well prior to inserting the included Platinum Blue-black ink cartridge. The tines seemed to be aligned well and so I put it to Rhodia & Clairefontaine paper. Being of the Japanese genre the tipping is very fine with a relatively small sweet spot as expected. It was not scratchy nor objectionable but the nib did exhibit some toothy feedback and sings over most of the papers tried. Ink flow was definitely on the dry side but became much nicer after a good nib flossing. It improved even more with an ink change to Akkerman's #5 Shocking Blue and to "proper" Japanese paper types (Midori,Apica,Tsubame Fools), for which I'm sure the nib was intended. While not blobby tipped glass smooth, it is wonderfully smooth for such a fine point not likely intended for Western Cursive writing.
Oh ... did I mention Soft-fine? Yes, this nib is delightfully springy/bouncy. This is NO nail of a nib. Some do say it is not a flex nib. For those that care, I say it is a true regular flex when compared to my vintage Pelikan gold and steel nibs (1930-1950's). It requires light-moderate pressure but will happily flex 3x its standard line width and snap right back. Just don't try to abuse it. Also of note: this nib and ink combo did produce shading and sheening on the Japanese papers to various degrees.

I am very happy with this gem of a pen- it's a keeper!

4 pack of black cartridges for platinum pens. Not much to say. Make sure to clean your pen well afterwards, if you’re putting this in a fountain pen. Has some nice permanence qualities.

3776 Shungyo
The 3776 is my go to pen. A perfect all arounder. I love the nibs. I did not need it but must admit, color and subtle design/stripes are beautiful. I use it exclusively for my Herbin Parfum de Rose ink. It is a perfect combination.
