Platinum Pens

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.

Love this pen. Typical Platinum through and through. Cap is a little loose fitting though. Sharp!

Bottled Carbon Ink(60ml)
One of my favorites inks to sketch. It is waterproof and dries fast, making it perfect for sketching on location (urban sketching) and applying watercolor washes on top as it will not smear with water.. But since this ink has very small particles, it could clog a fountain pen. Thus I never fill my expensive ( $100+) pens with this ink, instead, I use Lamys or better yet, Noodlers AHAB pens. This ink is the PERFECT combination with the noodlers pens (I bought a couple of Ahab pens here too). Nearly every part of the Ahab pen is replaceable and the nibs are $5 making it worry free if it clogs ( on the rare occasions where my nib clogged because I let the pen sit for a month and used another pen, I just let the nib soak in a glass with alcohol overnight then used a tooThbrush to wash it with soft scrub soap - and bam, nib could be reused!)The price of this ink ($16) at this site is also extremely competitive.

Preppy Marker
Converted to eye dropper with some silicone grease and an o-ring and filled with noodlers heart of darkness. Writes nicely on paper. Maybe one of these days will get the noodles blue erase ink to use on glass or white boards.

Such reliable and nice quality pens! I use these (in four different colors) constantly while traveling for work. They travel well due to that sealing cap mechanism. Not a leak yet and I fly 2-4 times a week.

Cartridge(3pk) Highlighter
Ordered these in yellow for the Preppy and love them. Easy to use, but will be using a converter to refill the Preppy Highlighter with bottled ink instead when I have used up the cartridges. These are great to keep in my bag for on-the-go, though, and will definitely be buying more.

Preppy Highlighter
Preppy highlighter has been a great one. I've been using the standard cartridges, but have ordered a converter to use with bottled highlighter ink. LOVE the idea of refilling a highlighter without having to just buy new and throw so many away.

Preppy
I ordered the Preppy Fountain Pen in Pink with a fine nib. Love the look and feel of the pen, a bit of a dry writer with the standard cartridge included with the pen, but I have ordered a converter to try other inks to see if that makes a difference. I have since purchased a medium in a different color but have not yet tried it.

This is a wonderful desk pen; however, the nib dries out if not kept capped in my desk pen holder. The pen has a good feel and writes wonderfully.

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.
