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

3776 Century
I picked up this pen with a music nib and it writes great! No real spring in the nib but it’s very smooth with a crisp line when held correctly to the paper. The wetness of the nib is just about perfect for me. It’s tuned extremely well out of the box. The blue color of the material has a very rich depth to it that’s impressive. It’s also very light and excellent for long writing sessions. It’s one of my favorite pens! Every collector should have at least one!

Cartridge(10pk) Dye
I bought the blue/black cartridges. The color is quite blue, but I like it. The ink does have some flow problems, but it doesn’t bleed through cheap paper, which I love.

Preppy Highlighter
Why pay $2.95 for a highlighter? It's refillable, and the nibs are replaceable! And you'll be the only person in the room with this item. Get it!

Bottled Carbon Ink(60ml)
I really like this ink. It is like writing with liquid pencil. There is a graphite sheen to it. Writes very smoothly, feels lubricated. Permanent, but will smear a tiny bit. May feather and bleed through cheap paper. A nice alternative if you care about permanence.

Balance
A green Platinum Balance was my first purchase from Pen Chalet. I bought it on a whim, just to try a Platinum, which I had not written with before. I am a journalist and, to everyone else’s amusement, have always used a fountain pen to take notes at Press conferences. So a fountain pen is an everyday tool for me and I need one that is comfortable and satisfying to use. The Platinum is now one of my three favorites, together with a 60 year old Parker Duofold, which still works perfectly and has similar mild feedback to the Platinum, despite having a gold nib, and a Montegrappa with a completely different, ultra-smooth experience. I find the variation in different pens is what makes a fountain pen so much more enjoyable than any other writing instrument and infinitely more so than a computer.

3776 Nice Lavende
This is a gorgeous, gorgeous pen that I bought at an excellent price from PenChalet. I love the 3776 line of pens, and the lavender color of this one made it irresistible. I recommend it to anyone who likes a medium sized pen with a very smooth 14K nib at this price point.

Classic (60ml)
This ink is wonderful stuff. It's very permanent, so be careful. But it goes on the page as a lavender, but then dries to a deep purple with some excellent shading. I was a new comer to pigmented inks and dubious since they require a bit more nib cleaning, but this is an excellent product. I've used it in stubs and in a fine nib; it shades nicely.

Classic Sample(4ml)
Classic Cassis Black, now one of my fave REDS. Currently in an old Pelikan stub calligraphy, and it continues to inpress with daily use. Those of us "into reds" will appreciate the solid and somehow nuanced line laid down, and the fatter, the better! KUDOS to Pen Chalet for offering these "tasters" for $3.50. Expensive ink, but real pretty. The tester-vial will load my Pelikan piston about 3 or four times, and good to the last drop.

3776 Jupiter Ebonite
14k M nib
This is a nice pen, and my second attempt to figure out why some people love Platinum pens (my first was a Platinum 3776 with an EF nib; not a good choice for someone who doesn't know what a Platinum EF nib is).
The brown and black ebonite body is very well manufactured. The threads are smooth and precise. There is a slight step on the cap between the gold band and the open end, which creates an unusual sensation when handling the pen while capped. Also, the brown and black combination may not appeal to everyone. It does not have a striking appearance, even though it is polished to a high gloss.
The pen has no noticeable ebonite smell.
The nib has a beautiful writing feel. I'm much happier with the HM nib than the EF.

Cartridge Adapter
These adapters are convenient because otherwise one is limited to the Platinum proprietary system. Either just the available colors or waiting for an empty Platinum cartridge to clean out and then refill with the color you want. With this product you can use any brand of international cartridges

3776 Century
I am a fan of the 3776 line of Platinum. They are a good value, come with a variety of nib sizes, they have the great Slip/Seal caps to prevent ink drying out. They are light and comfortable for my hand and the Bourgogne color is striking. I own 4 of this model with different bibs and colors.

Ink
No complaints. Reasonably priced, does it's job well. Have used it only a few weeks to check for wear and tear effects.

I went through a lot of issues trying to get the shipment outside the US and Ron was there all the while sorting out the problems and I'm grateful for his support (in spite of my many emails and calls to him with loads of probably impertinent questions and difficulties I was having).

Certainly recommend the product.

Definitely recommend PenChalet.com for all related purchases

3776 Century
I am in love with the pen, which is, I'll admit, at the higher end of my pen budget. It writes like a dream. I wish it was a little more fun to look at but really, I can go into any meeting anywhere and it is just fine (and I can put fun colored ink in it).

3776 Nice Lavende
This is my second 3776 Nice - I have the Lilas and had to have this Lavande when I saw it. The nib is awesome - springy and perfect. The pen feels well made. And it is stunningly beautiful.
