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.

Customer Reviews

Classic (60ml)
The pen: Pilot Penmanship XF nib
The medium: Newsprint puzzle magazine
The ink: Platinum Classic Forest Black

The result: Even on his frankly miserable paper, the ink isn't bleeding through. It is barely even showing through. This pen isn't putting down enough ink to show off the color change, but the ink is performing admirably well in the task I set it to. And it is a tough task at that.

3776 Nice Lilas
This is hands down the smoothest pen I own. It is a strong performer even on low quality. It has quickly become one of my absolute favorites.

Ink
This is my first Platinum converter. I had a little trouble getting it to draw ink up via the nib of the pen I used it in. That might well be operator error. But I have blunt-end syringes and pipettes, so I was undaunted. It appears to be working fine in the pen.

3776 Black
Platinum quality. Classic black with gold looks very nice. Fine nib writes SUPER fine, so be aware if you don't like a *very* fine line.

Your platinum pens are superb, and when I lost one and tried to use your carbon ink in another fountain pen, it simply failed, so I've bought two, an d given away two more as gifts. Bravo!

3776 Carnelian
Writes well as with all 3776’s. It’s certainly bright! I went outside my comfort zone with this color but the overall quality of the pen keeps it looking higher-end instead of cheap and plastic. The more I look at it the more I like it!

Love it. I'm not a fan of red pens, so it's not the color. Nib is perfect. A pleasure to use.

Procyon 100th Anniversary
A great fountain pen at a lower price point than the 3776 Century. The cap seal has worked well for me thus far - no noticeable drying out, but I haven't had the pen for a year yet. Feels very solid, and uses the Platinum converters, which I've never had a problem with. The steel medium nib provides a smooth, enjoyable writing experience.

I love this pen. It writes so smoothly and doesn't bleed through the pages of my journal. My other less expensive pens have this problem.

What’s not to like about this sweet little pen? It writes like a charm, is comfortable to hold, and is fun to use! I also have the green one! And, you certainly can’t beat the price! Brilliant! ??

Prefounte
I have become quite a fan of Platinum pens. Their "slip and seal" technology makes their pens write immediately after sitting for lengths of time. Most of the pens in my collection require some "priming" to use them again after a short length of time. I have Platinum pens from the new Prefounte to the Century and they all write really well. Even after sitting for a month or more. And they all are a joy to write with.

Double 3 Action Multi-Function
WOW! I am floored! This pen/pen/pencil arrived today and I will be ordering a few more! Very smooth pen writing experience. The black and red pen parts have the feel and line thickness of a fine point. The pencil lead drops right into place and is a nice hardness. This is the best hybrid I've ever held -- and for a $20 price point! Sweet!
