The Platinum Izumo fountain pen is an outstanding example of Japanese craftsmanship. Each Izumo fountain pen is turned from ebonite, then coated with multiple layers of urushi and polished to a mirror-like shine, all by hand.

The large 18k, two-tone gold nib is available in six widths: UEF, EF, F, M, B, and Coarse (BB).

Each Platinum Izumo fountain pen is packaged in a wooden box with a pen kimono and includes a single cartridge and converter. Also included is a scroll of fountain pen paper.

Select Nib Width

Platinum's nibs are remarkably consistent, offering moderate ink flow and a smooth writing sensation. Choose from sizes Ultra Extra Fine, Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, or Coarse (Double Broad).

    This is great pen. This actually my second Izumo, but the first from Dan. I ordered a Broad nib and had him Stub it. This is the smoothest nib I have and it has a perfect stub! Dan is a fantastic Nibsmith! The pen itself is perfect, nice colors, very light and fit and finish are excellent.
