The Japanese writing firm Platinum has been operating for more than 100 years and is one of the oldest and most traditional writing trademarks on the planet.Its founder, Shunichi Nakata, has always stood out in the industry for handcrafting the fountain pens with the best materials and the most careful and exclusive techniques. .
High-end Platinum writing pieces are usually crafted in ancient Japanese techniques such as Maki-e paint-making, Urushi lacquering or treating wood or other natural materials in a particular manner. Given the difficulty of the skills required to carry out such procedures, which can only be performed by expert artisans back in Japan and can take months to complete, it is not uncommon for these premium pieces to be out of stock on a regular basis.
At Iguana Sell we have one of the largest collections of premium Japanese writing instruments that exists. Here are some of the pieces from one of the most exclusive collections of Platinum, the Izumo. The Platinum Izumo collection is one of the brand's most exquisite ones, which includes handcrafted pieces made with both traditional Japanese materials and techniques.
