About Platinum

Platinum Pen Co., Ltd. was founded in 1919 by Toshiichi Nakata to build fountain pens. In 1949, Platinum Pen received first prize in the first international pen exhibition in Japan.

Platinum Pen continues to push the envelope, recently developing a cap for the Plaisir fountain pen line. This cap prevents ink from both drying and evaporating even with no pen use for an entire year.
