Platinum Matsu-Tora Kanazawa-haku Fountain Pen Zoom Platinum Matsu-Tora Kanazawa-haku Fountain Pen

The master craftsmen of Kanazawa produce some of the world's finest gold leaf, in an array of shimmering colours. In accordance with an ancient technique - Momo Chirashi - Platinum take this gold leaf then tear and fold it into smaller unique shapes. These are then painstakingly applied to the barrel of the pen, resulting in a delicately-textured surface that captures and reflects light with a depth that normally-applied gold leaf cannot match.

The design upon the barrel of each pen is unique thanks to the process of applying the designs by hand. Each pen is subtly different.

For this Matsu-Tora edition, paintings of a pine tree and a tiger are added to the barrel and cap. The tiger image is based on 'Rosho Mouko-zu' by Okyo Maruyama, from the Edo period. In Japanese art, the tiger represents wealth, status and posterity. The pine tree, as an evergreen tree, is a symbol of life.

Underneath the opulent design, the pen is the same great #3776 Century design that we've all come to know and love.

The Platinum #3776 Century range features the 'Slip and Seal' airtight cap. The innovative new 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.

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.

The 14kt gold 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.

Uses Platinum ink cartridges or the supplied converter for use with bottled ink. Platinum recommends Platinum Fountain Pen Ink, though of course any quality bottled ink can be used.

Weight 18.8g, 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 gift box.
