This is one of the more expensive pens I own as I'm quite a newbie and not ready to commit a lot of money to fountain pens. Yet. But I specifically sought out this one because of its reviews online and was swayed by the soft fine nib. I'm absolutely in love with how sturdy this pen feels and the nib allows me to go bold with my writing.

At the beginning, pen didn't write. It was dry and the feed didn't get wet. I took off and put back the cartridge several times. It didn't work. Then, I sequized the cartridge and the ink came from section but not from feed. A friend suggested keeping the nib+section in water few hours. I did. In addition, I did several flashing. Finally, it worked out. Ok, I admit the pen is fantastic! Soft fine is behaving like fine flex. Very smooth and neat! I love the pen. I am happy that I was able to fix the problem

I guess that I am enjoying writing witrh this pen so much on a daily basis, that I didn't notice the few weeks that already went by since the pen arrived. I love the feel of the pen, the nice balance in my hand, even the motion of unscrewing the cap feels elegant. And of course, the nib - having experience with other Japanese brands (Sailor in particular), I knew that the M nib would be more on the Fine side for me than on the Broad side, and it is both comfortable, and flows nicely, without drying while I work and let it sit a bit between taking notes... this is a classy and very comfortable pen!

I knew I wanted to get a "next level" pen, and decided on the Platinum 3776 Century. I am so glad I ordered this pen. I heard in reviews that there is definite feedback and that worried me a little because I ordered a fine nib. However, when I got the pen and inked it up right away without (gasp!) giving it a wash first, I just didn't want to stop writing with it! The flow was excellent, the pen was comfortable while posted, and the nib gave just the right amount of feedback without being scratchy at all. No more than a smooth pencil's amount of feedback! Really happy! You have to order the Platinum converter separately, which is a little bit of a drag, but I prefer Platinum converters to Pilot converters any day, and don't mind spending the money. Great deal and customer service from Pen Chalet as well.

In my opinion, these pens with the soft fine nibs are the very best pen on the market. They'd be worth it at twice the price, but glad they are sold at such a reasonable price. I've a dozen of them, most of them purchased right here at PenChalet for their great prices and fast and friendly service!

This pen is a smooth writer. No feedback to mention. The medium point is right for me with and ink. Decent price for a 14K nib pen.

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.
