The Platinum #3776 Century range features a 'Slip and Seal' airtight cap. This innovative screw-on cap system uses an inner plastic seal with a strong spring. The primary benefit of this system is improved storage ability - the ink will not dry out even if left for over a year. An added benefit is improved resistance to leaks due to pressure changes.
Model no. PNB-10000. Black AS resin barrel with gold-plated trim. 14kt gold nib. '#3776' logo is engraved on the cap ring.
The nib of the #3776 is a beautiful piece of work - made in-house at Platinum, and all are hand-tested at the factory. This nib and feed is the same as that used in the legendary Nakaya Urushi pens.
Medium (M), fine (F), extra-fine (EF), ultra-extra-fine (UEF), soft-fine (or fine flexible) (SF), broad (B) and extra-broad (C) nibs now available.
Uniquely Platinum publish write-out lengths for the nibs, based on a single Platinum cartridge, with a pen load of 50g, at an angle of 60 degrees:
Uses Platinum ink cartridges. Supplied with a converter for use with bottled ink. Platinum recommends Platinum Fountain Pen Ink, though of course any quality bottled ink can be used.
An additional benefit of the Slip and Seal cap is that Platinum approve the use of their pigment inks in these pens. Platinum pigment inks are waterproof and lightfast but are risky to use in normal pens unless you clean the pen out after every use. Platinum guarantee that Platinum Slip and Seal pens are safe to use with Platinum Carbon and pigment inks as your everyday ink.
Weight 20.5g, 140mm long closed, 120mm open, 155mm posted. 15.4mm max. barrel diameter.
The #3776 name comes from the height in metres of Mt.Fuji, the highest and most beautiful peak in Japan.
Supplied in a luxury giftbox.

Relatively unknown in the West, Platinum are a very well respected brand in Japan, especially known for the quality of their fountain pen nibs, and their innovations in mechanical pencils, brush pens and multipens. Their high-end fountain pens have much in common with the closely related brand Nakaya, a legendary brand among fountain pen enthusiasts.
