PLATINUM PEN COMPANY
Established in 1919 by Syunchi Nakata, Platinum Pen Co. is renowned as a manufacturer of fine fountain pens. Platinum 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, and there are few pens with the nib quality to match the Platinum #3776 for example. Platinum now manufactures a huge range of writing instruments from maki-e fountain pens to hi-tech pencils, rollerballs and ballpoints.
PLATINUM: MADE IN JAPAN
Platinum fountain pens embody the very best in Japanese design and engineering. Germany and Japan lead the way in excellence in Fountain pen design and Platinum are amongst the very best in Japanese manufacturers. Nobody in the world can produce the quality of fountain pens that Platinum does for the price.
PLATINUM 3776 FOUNTAIN PENS
The original #3776 series was designed by the late writing expert Haruo Umeda, known as “Mr.Fountain Pen,” along with the design team at Platinum Pen Company. Their aim was simple- to create the ideal fountain pen. The #3776 was made available to the public beginning in 1978. After just six months, over 150,000 pens had been sold, and its popularity has been maintained ever since. #3776 expresses the height in meters of Mt. Fuji, the highest and most beautiful peak in Japan.
The Platinum pen company has continued to redesign and improve on what was already a classic design. They made several samples of a nib and feeder according to 40,000 samples of writing data. From 2009 to 2011, they updated almost all machineries for making fountain pens and have made a new mold for not only a feeder and a nob, but also all parts of the new ''Century''. The ''Century'' is an entirely new fountain pen, new design, new machineries and new mold.
The Platinum 3776 represent the pinnacle in Japanese premium fountain pen engineering.
The #3776“ Century” Fountain Pen has all the qualities that make for the ideal contemporary fountain pen. Sleek design, comfortable writing balance, smooth flow, and fast-drying ink… At the request of customers, Platinum Pen have gone back to the basics to address these issues. Every part and mechanism has been carefully studied and re-engineered.
The innovative cap on the 3776 contains a unique “Slip & Seal” mechanism that prevents ink from drying out in the pen even through extended periods of non use for up to a year. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow.
One ink cartridge is included. (No converter)
