Customer Reviews

3776 Century
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.

3776 Century
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.

3776 Century
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.

Classic (60ml)
I really like the Sepia Black color. Some say it has a green tint, if it does, it subtle. The color shift isn't as great as other platinum classic if inks, but I still like the color.

Modern Maki-e
I have learned to enjoy this pen , the more I use. It is a narrower pen then I generally use, but it writes smoothly and beautifully. The design is a bit more subtle then I expected, but none the less is pretty and unique.

3776 Oshino
Great for my note taking needs. Bought the Medium Nib. Even better ink control than my Century 3776. 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. I typically use Ampad Gold Fiber Pads, which are probably not the best for fountain pens. Using Platinum Blue/Black cartridges.

Curidas
This pen is beautiful and feels so nice in your hand. The weight is perfect. The mechanism to open and close it works amazingly well. Getting the ink to flow took about two days of shaking and reinserting the cartridge. It seems to be flowing now, so hopefully it was just a "new pen" thing.

3776 Carnelian
It took me a little while to get used to this pen. I really liked the weight of the pen and the way it felt balanced in my hand but I wasn't too sure about the soft fine nib I ordered. I had only used Platinum Preppys before and thought this nib would feel like that nib. After debating whether I loved or hated the soft fine nib...I eventually decided I loved it. It writes perfect fine lines and I love the bounce it has. I am very happy with this pen, I adore the color and would buy a 3776 soft fine again.

This is an amazing pen. It writes very smoothly and reliably. I got it in violet and it's absolutely gorgeous. While it's lighter than some people might like, I'm a big fan. It's smooth and has been reliable thus far.

3776 Century
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

3776 Carnelian
Lovely red that is closer to Ferrari red (Rosso Corsa) than the previous red pen Platinum released. Typical Japanese attention to detail and the nib was perfect out of the box, as it should be. Pen Chalet is just incredible. I cannot imagine purchasing pens anywhere else.

Plaisir
Bought a Blue Plaisir for my son for before he went to college. He tried some of my fountain pens before and had been using a Pilot Varsity for a while. I decided to get him a pen for himself. He tried my Safari, Al-Star, Jinhao 450, 750, and my Plaisir. He liked the Plaisir and was happy to have it. Wrote all of his graduation thank you notes with it and it is now with him as school. I also took mine with me when i traveled, and received some compliments. Sturdy, durable, writes great.

Prefounte
Love the color and how it writes. It is a slightly upgraded Preppy and a good starter pen. I would take it on trips with out worry about losing it (although I would be sad) as it writes and looks great. I got the dark blue one. Bought it on a whim since I've been impressed with my other Platinum pens.

Great converter. Works fine with a Plaisir or a 3776. Has a suprising volume too. Not exactly sure how much, but I never have any problem filling it to the max.

3776 Century
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.

Platinum is a superb manufacturer.

The President has my brother reliving his childhood of essays written in living ink by hand; perhaps with more ink stained fingers than now.

Quality, perfection and timeless style ... Platinum President

I own one in red color. Very complicated assembly mechanism but I like it. EF nib is thin and smooth. Overall great pen especially if you do not like the fact that fountain pens need to have cap on all the time. One negative - too long.
