The 3776 Century is a perfect choice for anyone looking to experience the world of premium Japanese fountain pens. It combines a classic "cigar" silhouette with a wide selection of stunning body colors and exquisite 14k gold nibs. The pen is named in honor of Japan's revered Mount Fuji, which is 3,776 meters tall. Just as Mount Fuji is the highest peak in Japan, Platinum strives to make the 3776 the pinnacle of fountain pen development. Since its introduction in 1978, the 3776 has been continuously improved with new features like the "Slip and Seal" cap mechanism that can keep the nib from drying out for over a year without use.
This pen features a handcrafted urushi maki-e finish. An ancient Japanese technique dating back well over a thousand years, urushi maki-e involves layering lacquer and powdered metallic pigments to create brilliant patterns and artwork. Its Fine nib is great for detailed writing and drawing.
