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.

3776 Century
Never been disappointed in a 3776. Platinum nibs are excellent. This color is gorgeous and I am very pleased I got it. I use either Platinum or Pilot inks in it and writes well. Even the drier Pelikan ink performs in this pen. I use Medium and Broad nibs.

3776 Century
I both the Platinum 3776 Century with music nib to draw. It looks very wet doing some tests in regular papers but I need more time using the pen in watercolor 100% cotton paper to tell if it will work as I hope. I use another brands with different nibs to create my artwork and I liked the size and the beautiful color and finish of this one.

3776 Century
This is a great pen. The line it draws is very very fine, which is exactly what I wanted, but there's still a little give in the nib. I'm not very into red, but the red pen is really quite beautiful and regal looking. Love the pen.

Got the Cool Blue>F which is a great color and had some nice little details on it I wasn't expecting. Comfortable to use and cannot beat that Platinum nib. Very pleased with this fountain pen.

Plaisir
I have several Platinum pens and love them all - and this one certainly did not disappoint either. Beautiful red metallic barrel. This pen has a much lighter feel to it than my other platinum pens, but definitely still a quality pen and great for the price. As all of my Platinum pens, this one always writes smoothly the first time, every time, even after not using for a week. Beautiful color pairing with Pilot Iroshizuku Momiji ink! Makes me happy!!

Preppy Highlighter
I have a couple of these Preppy pens, typically used as highlighters, not that it matters. If you get tired of using a Preppy as a highlighter switching it to be a fountain pen or standard marker is easy as can be with a simple swap of the nibs (sold separately). I'm not a fan of the fountain pen version but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the highlighters, because I can convert them to eyedroppers, fill them up with highlighter inks of my own choice, and then not worry about needing to refill them anytime soon. One eyedroppered Preppy highlighter would probably last from orientation to graduation for a bachelor's degree. I love that eyedroppering the Preppy or even using the converter in it makes it probably the most environmentally-friendly highlighter on the market. If you take care of it, this one highlighter can last for years, unlike all those disposables. Yes, you can refill Tombows or Stabilos, too, but neither of those has an option to let you replace the nib if it wears out, or exchange the chisel tip for another type of nib entirely for other writing uses. The versatility of this highlighter, and its environmental friendliness makes the Platinum Preppy the best highlighter, ever.

Pigmented Bottle (60ml)
I got the Sepia, and it's a gorgeous, classic Sepia color. I've only used it on Clairefontaine paper, so I can't speak to feathering or bleedthrough, only about how it felt in my pen, which was terrific. The flow is wet without being gushy, and the color is plenty saturated. Is it the sexiest color out there? No, but I have yet to be dissatisfied with the performance of any Platinum ink.

Carbon
I manage an apartment complex. I love fountain pens but had trouble with the ink not showing up on xerox copies. This elegant, old fashioned pen and it's carbon ink solved that problem. Now it is hard to tell the copy from the original documents. I am so glad I found this pen and ink.

Preppy
I have all the Preppy colours but this one and it is really beautiful.Hard part is what ink to use. The yellow cartridge with it is really pale so I suggest get the Intl cartridge adapter and try another colour ink. Like Diamine Topaz or Marigold etc. I also would prefer a medium nib and this is fine. But Preppy's do come in medium with other colours so buy a blue or black or red with medium nib and swap. Cheap nib option and the extra pen can be used for ink testing. Although finer nibs do not lay down as much ink.

3776 Century
This is a great pen, beautiful semi-translucent red with the UEF nib finer than the soft fine, which is what I wanted. SF is also very good. The UEF wrote straight out of the box, although it took some feeding through, using the supplied cartridge. The nib has a precise sweet spot though. This pen is going to give me much joy. Delivery and service is top-notch.
