Have you just discovered the world of fountain pens and you don't know which one to choose?
We highly recommend Platinum Plaisir !
Its stainless steel tip is resistant to abrasions and provides a smooth and effortless writing experience. Its cap has a patented mechanism which ensures that the ink does not dry out when the pen is closed, even after a year without using it.
It is the perfect pen for beginners or for people who do not write frequently with the same pen.

  • Dimensions: 5.5'' with the cap closed and 6'' with the cap placed on the end of the body
  • Weight: 10g (without cartridge or tank)
  • Come with a black ink cartridge
  • Complementary product we suggest: A removable and reusable reservoir that allows you to use ink bottles instead of single-use cartridges.
  • To note: Japanese nibs tend to be finer than Western ones. If you are used to writing, for example, with a fine nib, we recommend that you select a medium Japanese nib.
  • Platinum fountain pens are only compatible with Platinum ink cartridges

Platinum Pen Co., Ltd was founded in 1919, by Shunichi Nakata. This Japanese company quickly became a pioneer in the writing instrument industry.

One of his most important creations was the Platinum Honest 60. It was one of the first fountain pens in the world to use ink cartridges. In 1958, mountaineers even traveled to the Himalayan mountains to test the Honest 60 and proved that the ink in the cartridge did not leak, despite the low atmospheric pressure (if you often travel by plane with your nibs and cartridges, you know that this is not an easy task!).

Nowadays, Platinum Pen Co., Ltd is recognized as one of the best pen companies on the market. Its great reputation is explained, in part, by the fact that it has remained a family business; even with 100 years of existence, it is still run by the Nakata family. She therefore knew how to maintain her original vision and her passion for pen manufacturing.
