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.

Customer Reviews

Platinum Izumo-tamenuri
The Platinum Izumo polished ebonite pen is a real treat to use, the tactile warmth of the ebonite/urushi, smoothness of the nib, and the goodly size of the pen, make for a wonderful writing experience. I was lucky enough to get mine on sale, otherwise I might have hesitated to take the plunge, but having done so, would not hesitate to recommend the investment, I do not think you will be disappointed.

Platinum President
Nice looking pen and the c nib(double broad) is very smooth. Just wish it was a piston pen instead of a converter but that’s just a personal preference.

Platinum 3776 Century
This pen is exquisite! I love the broad nib, and the ink flow is smooth. The barrel fits nicely in the hand and is a beautiful dark green, almost black.

Platinum President
The pen is fantastic. The “President” nib looks small on the pen but it writes beautifully. Softer and less feedback than a 3776 nib. I could use this pen every day! The capped weight and balance is perfect.

Platinum 3776 Century
This is a nice pen. It feels good in the hand, super light, and the Chartres blue is really pretty. The 14k nib is nice with a bit of feedback, but not unpleasant. It went to being one of my top used pens.

Platinum Modern Maki-e
Although I do have more expensive pens, this pen is my sine qua non writer. The one I would want on the desert isle. Gorgeous art. Fabulous 18k nib. I use it for important letters. The flexibility of the nib is something, with the requisite budget, I'd like to test against vintage flex nibs, it is that splendid!

Platinum Preppy Marker
A really inexpensive way to have refillable markers. Get some o-rings and silicone grease and you don't need to shell out more money for a converter, which costs more than this functional pen. I'll probably buy more simply because they are so handy.

Platinum President
This model Platinum may be my most favorite pen currently in use. It has a 18K President Medium nib that writes like a Western Fine - and it just is lovely in my hand (woman's Medium). I would love to have more of this nib style it's so good! It's also lovely to look at, and is quite light, which I prefer. For the price, one of the very best pens I have ever used, straight out of the box, which is fantastic!

Platinum Ink
The lonely fountain pen converter seems to always be sitting in the back seat and told to be quiet.

I believe fountain pen converters need to be recognized and given their proper place in writing.

A proper brand and constructed converter will keep up it's end in the writing experience.

A proper brand and constructed converter will fit & re-fit properly many times and there will be no leaks.

When purchasing a fountain pen make sure to also purchase an extra 2 +/- converters that go with the pen and give yourself a worry free writing future.

(the same goes for ink cartridges)

Platinum 3776 Carnelian
I like Japanese fountain pens with 14k or better nibs and this pen fits with this like.

This is a quality fountain pen.

I bought the Van Dieman's Ruby Slippers red ink to go with this pen, here at the Pen Chalet.

I believe it is nice to purchase an ink when one purchases a pen, a way to add to the collection of inks.

Platinum Limited Edition Maki-e Procyon
On first glance, I thought the pen appeared stiff and very machine-made. I still think it looks machine-made, with a screen printed maki-e motif (Plover over the waves). The pen felt solid and comfortable in my hand, though, so for the price I wouldn't be at all displeased with just that. I set it to "get acquainted" with some of my more modern, industrial pens, and that made all the difference. It absolutely shines there, and I'm very happy with it.

Platinum Curidas
I love this pen. It’s quirky and a bit fussy but doesn’t bother me at all. The nib is a gem. Doesn’t look like much but has the right balance of smoothness / feedback. The thickness is also very comfortable in my hands
