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 Carbon
I wanted a fountain pen to write a very fine line with waterproof ink for sketching and journaling. I now have 50+ pens of all shapes and nib types inked up. My carbon desk pen is still my favorite and most reliable for sketching and jotting notes. The line is smooth and fine. This pen never skips, blobs, or dry starts even when it hasn't been used in a few weeks. It also doesn't clog with waterproof Carbon ink in it. It lives up to all the rave reviews I read about it.

Platinum President
This was my first major top tier pen purchase and I have to say now I understand the hoopla around Japanese Top Tier fountain pens. This pen is simple but beautiful and what a writer. No flaw issues, no hard starts. It just writes and makes you want to write endlessly with this pen.

Platinum Bottled Carbon Ink(60ml)
Good waterproof black ink. Saving it for applications where I don't want my ink to run AT ALL.

Caveat: if you are rinsing a pen with this ink in an old porcelain sink, MAKE SURE you rinse and clean the sink IMMEDIATELY. Otherwise you may end up with a slight stain on your sink that doesn't yield to scouring powder OR bleach. This was totally my fault. And luckily I've got a bath re-do coming in the future!

Platinum 3776 Century
This is one of the more expensive pens I own as I'm quite a newbie and not ready to commit a lot of money to fountain pens. Yet. But I specifically sought out this one because of its reviews online and was swayed by the soft fine nib. I'm absolutely in love with how sturdy this pen feels and the nib allows me to go bold with my writing.

Platinum Plaisir
I have other Plaisir pens, so I was confident I would be happy with this one. I ordered the Red Amabie. I knew nothing about what an "amabie" was, so finding the little engraving of an amabie was a delight! (For other curious folk: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amabie) The engraving on the pen is the same as the image on the top of the Wikipedia page.

It was a surprise and a delight, and I'm glad I ordered it, even though I didn't know what it was at the time of order.

Platinum Pigmented Bottle (60ml)
platinum pigmented ink is really fun to use. it's the only waterproof colored ink that i'm capable of using in a fountain pen, so i use it as a replacement for india ink when i'm addressing an envelope and i don't want to whip out my dip pen and other supplies.
my only complaint about these inks is that the sepia one is very dry and the pigments aren't dark enough to feel like i'm actually writing. i added a tiny drop of surfactant to it, and it helped a lot, but then it started having a feathering problem instead. so now i only use the sepia ink in a pen that i've specifically modified to use with that ink (it's a wing sung 3009 with an EF lamy-style nib that i've shimmed open)

the other two, the rose and the blue, work like a dream. absolutely no complaints.
same goes for the carbon ink, which i consider an honorary member of this line.

Platinum Ink
This converter seems better and more solidly built than most converters I have used. It fits snugly in the pen - which is important because I have had a number of other pens where the converter slipped out completely while carrying the pen around, causing the pen to suddenly dry out and ink leakage when opening to investigate...So this Platinum converter is a real pleasure.

Platinum 3776 Century
I guess that I am enjoying writing witrh this pen so much on a daily basis, that I didn't notice the few weeks that already went by since the pen arrived. I love the feel of the pen, the nice balance in my hand, even the motion of unscrewing the cap feels elegant. And of course, the nib - having experience with other Japanese brands (Sailor in particular), I knew that the M nib would be more on the Fine side for me than on the Broad side, and it is both comfortable, and flows nicely, without drying while I work and let it sit a bit between taking notes... this is a classy and very comfortable pen!

Platinum 3776 Century
I knew I wanted to get a "next level" pen, and decided on the Platinum 3776 Century. I am so glad I ordered this pen. I heard in reviews that there is definite feedback and that worried me a little because I ordered a fine nib. However, when I got the pen and inked it up right away without (gasp!) giving it a wash first, I just didn't want to stop writing with it! The flow was excellent, the pen was comfortable while posted, and the nib gave just the right amount of feedback without being scratchy at all. No more than a smooth pencil's amount of feedback! Really happy! You have to order the Platinum converter separately, which is a little bit of a drag, but I prefer Platinum converters to Pilot converters any day, and don't mind spending the money. Great deal and customer service from Pen Chalet as well.
