About the Platinum 3776 Century

Nearing its first century of existence the Platinum Pen Company created the Platinum 3776 Century fountain pen. The pen is a result of tradition and untiring efforts. The pen was originally released in 1978 and has been popular ever since. The number 3776 represents the height in meters of Mt. Fuji, the highest peak in Japan.

The Platinum 3776 pen has an innovative cap with the "Slip & Seal" mechanism. This design keeps the ink from drying out inside the pen over time as well as regulate the ink flow in the pen.

The Platinum 3776 Century fountain pen comes with a 14k gold nib and a cartridge converter style fill system.

Note: The converter is no longer included with the Platinum 3776 fountain pen and the Platinum 500 converter must be purchased separately.

Platinum 3776 Century Video Script

This is the Platinum 3776 Century fountain pen. It comes in either blue or white faux leather box. Since is that the Shoji version of the pen it is a white faux leather box. It has a hinged top to it and included with the pen have informational instructions about the 3776 fountain pen. On the underside of the lid we have 3776 Shoji with some Japanese characters.

This is a cartridge converter style pen. Included with the pen is a blue and a black ink cartridge. A converter for the pen is actually inside the pen(No longer included with the pen). You can see that through the barrel since this is a demonstrator style pen. You can see the inside the pen.

This Shoji fountain pen is a limited edition pen. It has a slight blue tint to the pen and chrome accents. On the top of the cap it has a small chrome band that runs around the cap. That holds that chrome clip on. You can actually see inside the cap and see that "slip and seal" mechanism that is a trademark mechanism that Platinum has developed. It is great because it keeps your pen fresh and ready to write. It keeps it from drying out.

Then on the cap we have 3776 engraved with Platinum made in Japan. Then at the bottom of the barrel we have a small chrome band that runs around the pen. You can see on the inside, you can see that converter. The cap on the pen unscrews. This is a larger pen so you can write with or without it posted. It's not too heavy. It's a resin pen so it's not too heavy to hold. It has a small chrome band that runs around the grip section here and at the very tip of the cap. Now this is gold nib. It's a 14-karat gold nib. Engraved on the nib is 3776 and the Platinum logo.

To exchange the ink on this pen you simply unscrew that grip section for the barrel. Since it already has an ink converter attached you would dip that nib into your ink and screw the end of this converter to draw the into that chamber. If you'd like to use a cartridge style ink you simply unscrew that converter and you can put the cartridges on. Actually it just pulls of it doesn't screw.

Platinum is a great company. They are a Japanese brand that makes fantastic writing instruments. Get your Platinum 3776 Century fountain pen at PenChalet.com!

3776 Century pens are rapidly becoming one of my favorite pen lines. I don't normally love gold trim on pens,but it works pretty well on this Chartres Blue. I got the Soft Fine nib on this one, and I like it quite a lot! Nice and flexy.

The 3776 Century is an excellent pen. Many have described how it writes as a "soft pencil", and I agree. The medium 14k nib writes beautifully, not too wet or dry and with just the right amount of line thickness and feedback. It does have a dry start when sitting uncapped for a brief amount of time, but restarts quickly and consistently. The pen is very balanced when posted, with just the right combination of length, width, and weight.

Exceptional quality and looks. I got the soft fine nib which has a very nice spring to it that makes writing a joy. Feedback is quite interesting and makes me feel in control of my writing. My only concern is that the photograph for the white model makes it look pink-ish on the site. It's actually white/off-white IRL. Just something to consider if you're looking to buy it. I'm still very very happy with the purchase and like the off-white look.

This is my second Platinum fountain pen. The first was a Procyon that I got on a whim. It was on special and included a converter. The nib was so fabulous it eventually displaced all my other fountain pens. It also enabled me to discover that I prefer writing with a really, really fine line. I had already noticed that the 3776 Century was advertised with an ultra extra fine nib, but the price was just out of reach. The I got a 15% birthday discount. Then it came on special. Now I have what I guess must be my grail pen. It writes the thinnest line of anything I have ever used and does so effortlessly.

I have been wanting to add the Platinum 3776 Century in Chartres Blue for quite awhile. Thanks to the PenChalet prices that desire was made into a reality. This is a solid pen at such a great price-point for a 14k gold nib. I like a Western medium or broad nib. After researching the Platinum nibs and watching many YouTube videos, I choose a broad nib. It's between a Western medium and a Western broad. I'm so glad I did. It's fantastic! I love the firmness of the nib as I'm not into a soft-bouncy writing experience because my writing style isn't conducive to soft-bouncy. This is an amazing writer. It is super smooth and offers feedback, which I like. It lays down a nice line of ink. Aesthetically, this pen is a 10 out of 10. It is gorgeous if you're into deep blue and gold accents, which I am. It feels really good posted or unposted. I have been reaching for this pen ever since I received it and inked it up. I'm very glad to add it to my collection.

Great for my note taking needs. Bought the Medium Nib. Decided to buy another Platinum because I was so pleased with the ink flow and control of this nib. Nib might be a bit stiff and a bit too much feedback for some tastes, but it is exactly what I needed for my note taking and the variety of paper I use, though typically use Ampad Gold Fiber Pads, which are probably not meant for fountain pens. Using Platinum Blue/Black cartridges.

The fine nib Platinum 3776 Century is by far my favorite pen. Most impressive is the even ink flow. Unlike the ink flow with Pilot gold nibs that can vary considerably based on pen stroke direction, the Platinum gold nibs lay down a crisp even line regardless of direction. If you prefer ink pooling in the bottom of your letters to demonstrate ink shading qualities, the Platinum gold nibs may not be the best choice. If, like me, you appreciate precise crisp even lines, the Platinum 3776 Century is perfect. The next most impressive quality of the 3776 Century is the nib feedback. The feedback through the fine nib is incredibly smooth, but somewhat pencil-like in that you can feel the fibers in your paper. For me, the added feedback provides better control. An apt analogy is a sports car or motorcycle with a stiff but pliant suspension for better control and handling at speed and in corners. Although my favorite pen, there is room for improvement. In my opinion, I would prefer if the pen had a bit more heft. Also, rather annoying for pen of such high quality is that when you tap the barrel the converter rattles against the inside of the barrel. To end with one more positive quality, I can flush the 3776 Century faster than any other pen. The excellent converter can be flushed out with just a couple of squirts from an ink syringe with no annoying trapped ink. As for the feed and nib, a bulb syringe fits perfectly over the feed intake tube, creating a tight seal that allows you to force water through the feed and nib with no spray back. I

This is my first gold nib (soft tip) and I love how it writes. It is smooth but just a hit of feedback which I like. The soft tip has just a hint of flex for some line variation and it has worked great with every ink I've used. It is the one pen I always keep inked it. With the Platinum's special caps, the nib is always wet. And it looks great.

FAQs about the Platinum 3776 Century

Q:
Is possible to use any brand of ink with this fountain pen?
Asked on Aug 18 2018 by Mario
A:
Platinum pens are proprietary so you will have to use Platinum ink cartridges or a Platinum converter, which then you can choose which bottled ink you want to use.
Q:
What is the difference between a soft fine nib and a fine and medium nib?
Asked on May 7 2015 by Chih
A:
The difference between the soft fine and the fine is the soft fine nib will have some flex in the nib to allow for line variation in the stroke.
Q:
Is "medium fine" the same as "soft fine"?
Asked on Jan 20 2015 by Mike
A:
No, the medium fine is between a fine nib and a medium nib in size. There is a specific "soft fine" nib if you are interested.
Q:
Does it come with a cartridge converter or must that be purchased separately?
Asked on Nov 27 2014 by Kane
A:
The Platinum 3776 fountain pen comes with a cartridge but no longer comes with a Platinum 500 ink converter and must be ordered separately.
Q:
Is it available in the new "Soft Fine" nib?
Asked on Oct 30 2014 by Paul Field
A:
The Platinum 3776 fountain pen is available with the soft fine nib in either the Black, Bourgogne, or Chartres Blue colors. We would have to special order it though and it would take an extra week.
