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.

Ultra extra fine! This pen writes beautifully, no hard starts, nice and steady lines, definitely no skipping. I can write with a super teeny tiny font and it is very legible. In person the chartres blue color is really pretty. This pen is Very well constructed pen, and perfectly finished. I am happy with my purchase!

Modern Maki-e
Happy I added this to my collection.
Very elegant and writes beautifully.
I have a Fine nib and it produces a nice fine line every time.
It's a decent writing length when posted for a man or woman.
A nice piece of elegance to Zaz-Up a collection.

I love the Preppy Marker. I always have lots of dead highlighters. Now I am excited to have ones I refill. The converter worked like a charm. I will have to collect different colors. Great way to use the ink samples.

This is a fun and ingenious pen. It isn’t perfect but I don’t regret getting it. It’s a conversation starter and cheaper then the Vanishing Point so I don’t worry as much about losing it.

Solid performance and great color. Like other Platinum pens, the capping system keeps the nib wet and ready to write. Order a converter too; I love how easy it is to fill, even from a sample vial.

Speedy delivery from Pen Chalet is a big plus as well.

Curidas
I really like this pen. I have always liked Platinum pens and this one has made me a bigger fan. I bought this with an EF nib and it writes very smooth and is nice and wet. Platinum nibs are awesome! I have an issue of it drying up if not used for several days, I just need to clean the nib a little and it is back to working great. That may be an issue of it being EF, I have mostly used Fine nibs prior to this owning this pen. The design is different since it is retractable. As with all of my pens I have a slightly different grip. The little bumps on the bottom took a little getting used to but I don't notice them anymore. It does have a larger body than my other pens and I tend not to write for long periods (more than 20 minutes) with it. Works great as a daily driver and will be a regular in my rotation. As always great service from Pen Chalet.

I hesitated to purchase because of reviews I saw on UTube: I worried that clip and proturbances on the barrel would interfere with grip on pen.Not a bit of it!
Pen is comfortable to hold, EF nib writes smoothly, mechanism works flawlessly.
Cartridge insertion is a tad complex, but easy to master.
I love the pen !!!

Preppy
Great writing, refillable fountain pen for under $5! I have both the medium and the fine nib sizes and they're both good. Haven't tried the XF yet but given how fine the regular F nib is, I don't think I will need to.

Carbon
My first use of carbon ink (by Platinum)was in their PLATINUM CFTR-250C brush pen. The pen is ~$4 and refillable so I couldn't resist. Though it says brush, the tip is felt which didn't take long to become clogged with the pigment in the ink. It took 20 days of tip soaking and refreshing a weak ammonia solution to clear the feed and felt. (12% by vol.)
I liked Platinum Carbon Ink's feel, varied surface adhesions, and water resistance so purchased a bottle. I used it in a Pilot Metropolitan fine tip and a Platinum Preppy 0.5 tip. Both started stalling within a week.
I then discovered Platinum made a fountain pen for the ink. I bought the medium tip unit and have used it for two weeks with no stalling nor clogging. I store it with the nib slanted downward in a pint cottage cheese container.
IT IS MY GOTO PEN for black ink work.

The ratings on #2 are based on 3 weeks of using the pen.

Fascinating mechanism! The fine nib is a bit finer than western extra fine. The diameter is similar to a Noodlers Ahab. It's a little long with the nib retracted, but just about perfect with the nib extended. The clip doesn't bother my grip, but it's easily removed if it troubles you. Check out the excellent video on the product page, it is spot on.

This is my first Platinum pen and I'm very happy with the purchase. The fit and finish are top notch. The pen writes well with a slight amount of feedback which was expected - it's a good writing experience. I purchased the M nib which is consistent with other Japanese nibs being about a step or so finer than western nibs. I prefer to post my pens and this pen appears to be designed for posting with nice weight in the cap which gives it a really good balance when posted. The only thing I would like to see is for the converter to be included - Pen Chalet makes clear it's not, but somehow I still missed it. On the whole, it's a really nice pen and is already high in the rotation!
