The main feature of the Platinum Izumo Bamboo Weaving Gozame Benikabairo is the barrel, with its beautiful decoration that is created through a finely woven bamboo. Numerous processes are necessary to make the bamboo strips. After selecting the right bamboo, a boiling process called aburanuki is used to make the material durable. After this follow the three steps arawarihabatori and senhiki. Finally, 36 bamboo strips of an even width (approximately 2mm in width and 0.2mm in thickness) are used to weave the barrel. The Gozame Benikabairo is then dyed and coated with sabiurushi.

The history of bamboo craft is old and has been closely involved in the lives of Japanese people. The craft techniques, which gradually enhanced its value, have been passed down by traditional craftsmen.

The fountain pen has an 18kt gold nib and uses a Platinum converter or Platinum ink cartridges, but with the special Ink Cartridge Adapter it is also possible to use the Standard International ink cartridges.

In 1919 Shunichi Nakata started his fountain pen business that would later be known as ‘Platinum Fountain Pen Co.’ The Japanese brand is closely related to the legendary Nakaya fountain pen brand, where some of the finest fountain pens in the world are created. This expertise also goes into Platinum's own line of fine writing instruments.

The Platinum Izumo fountain pens were launched in 2010, with the help of local craftsmen and the cooperation of officials from Izumo City in Shimane Prefecture. The name was chosen to acknowledge the birthplace of the founder. Professional craftsmanship can be found throughout the ’Izumo series’, which continues to be made from carefully selected materials. The brand has also been designated as one of the ‘Izumo brands’, recognized by Izumo City.
