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.

I just recently took possession of the 3776 Yamanaka. This pen is wonderful. The styling is elegant. The pen is well balanced and fits in the hand extremely well. There nib is smooth and is quite typical of the high level of quality that I have come to expect from Platinum in a nub and the pen overall. I have nothing but praise for this fountain pen. It is excellent.

This a beautiful pen. The Nice Pur is a lightweight pen with excellent ink flow. The "slip and seal" mechanism insures that the pen does not become dry when not in use.

This pen exceeded expectations and competes extremely well with other pens in a similar price category (Pilot Custom Heritage 91, Pilot Vanishing Point, Lamy 2000). I had been sitting on purchasing this pen for months, and with the Black Friday deal, it came in at $93.50, shipped. The pen retails for about double that ($176, and is worth THAT price). It's simply the best deal on a fountain pen that I've ever seen. The Medium (M) nib on mine is extremely smooth and the body is solid and comfortable. It can be posted, but I prefer to write without the cap. The rhodium accents on pen are well placed and refined. In a rather large pen rotation, this has already become my first choice. Thanks, Pen Chalet -- you've made a believer out of me!

A general review for the Platinum 3776 Century pen. Excellent daily writer. The nib runs finer than European nibs, but that's typically true of most Japanese nibs. The weight is nearly nonexistent. I usually write with the pen unposted, and in that regard the weight was perfect for long writing sessions. I did attempt to post the pen just as a test, but it becomes too top heavy for comfortable writing. Overall, a great value.

November 15, 2014, I received my Platinum Century 3776 Bourgogne fountain pen with a special order Soft-Fine nib. Ron from Pen Chalet went beyond what I expected in filling my order. The "soft-fine" point is especially responsive to my need for writing Gregg shorthand quickly. It was a pleasure working with Pen Chalet.

I picked the Bourgogne with the Music nib and it is awesome! The nib is so wet and smooth it's like gliding across a slip-n-slide on top of a cloud. If you want some serious nibbage, pick this combo.

FAQs about the Platinum 3776 Century

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.

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!
