About Chartres Blue Chrome 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!

This pen is larger than I thought it was going to be and the nib looks massive. But it is a smooth writer with a F nib, and the balance is good. I was disappointed that purchase did not include a converter. It would be nice to have them paired and sold side by side. There is some feedback to the nib, much like Sailor pens. I would not post the cap, as the pen is already largish for small lady's hand.

I love this pen. It writes so smoothly and doesn't bleed through the pages of my journal. My other less expensive pens have this problem.

This nib is silky smooth – it is the smoothest writing pen I have, and it’s not even close. It’s also beautiful just to look at – I was leery of spending the money, but I’m glad I did, because this pen is worth it!

I love it very much even I am not very familiar with the Japanese fine nibs. I really do like mine, the softness to it makes the writing experience not as smooth as I use to, but very pleased ! Thank you very much :) Oh the pen by itself is gorgeous ! the picture don't show it's beauty.

This was my first music nib, and my second 3776 Century (my other one is an EF: nothing but extremes for me, it seems). I adore it. The music nib is silky smooth and cooperates gorgeously with my shading inks, laying down a fat, sensuous line that turns my printing and cursive from spindly to elegant and flowing. Though I still love my EF nib for work (cramming editing notes into the margins of printouts requires a tiny nib), the music nib has quickly become my go-to for bullet journal headings, diary entries, and discovery writing for my fiction. It's just so much fun to use!

Such reliable and nice quality pens! I use these (in four different colors) constantly while traveling for work. They travel well due to that sealing cap mechanism. Not a leak yet and I fly 2-4 times a week.

When I first received my 3776 is came without the converter so I had to use the cartridge suppled by Platinum. It wrote horribly. It was dry and scratchy and weak on ink flow. So I ordered the converter (which wasn't provided with the pen I ordered) at additional cost, hoping that would resolve the problem, and the staff set aside a pen I could exchange it for if it didn't. I finally received the converter and inked it up with the Monteverde Sapphire, an ink I knew flowed well because it was lubricated. No problems after that. It 's now a nicely writing pen that provides just enough feedback for me and wet enough for the ink to read well. It's a well-balanced pen that weighs enough but not too much to write for extended periods. The problem could've been more quickly resolved if the converter had come with the pen. It was sold as "On Sale," but once I had to pay for the converter and for shipping, it actually cost more than it would have at another retailer. (Part of the problem was self-inflicted because I didn't read the description closely and assumed Pen Chalet was selling the pen as other retail sites I had reviewed this pen on. Still, I have this bad taste in my mouth about it being advertised as one sale when the price seemed to have really been based on not including a converter.)

Can't go wrong with these pens. I have a this pen in fine, medium and music nibs, all of which perform far above their price point. Well made, have never had a problem with them drying up between uses.

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.
