Platinum Mechanical Pencils

Though the Platinum name may be unfamiliar to westerners, it’s been a marquee brand on the Pacific rim for decades.

The company’s fountain pen roots are evident in its trajectory, as Platinum originally produced classy executive pencils that served as perfect boardroom accessories.

But this savvy Japanese brand has reinvented itself in modern times through the popularity of its Pro-Use line of premium drafting pencils.
