We're delighted to have secured a very limited number of a very limited edition pen from Platinum: only 300 of these pens are available worldwide.  Each Platinum King of Tigers Urushi Lacquer Fountain Pen is decorated by hand meaning that no two pens are the same. Featuring a hand-painted tiger on the black barrel, the tiger design is applied using matt charcoal powder and glossy black Urushi lacquer.

Based on the classic #3776 design, this subtly stunning limited edition fountain pen is crafted by hand using traditional techniques.

The Platinum King of Tigers Fountain Pen is in stock on our site now. What do you think of it?

I saw it on your 'what's new' page. Love it. A lot. But think it is just outside my budget right now. And I am pretty sure I will reget it if I don't buy it, just give it a year or two :(

Beautiful! Your illustration shows the cap posted. Does it post in such a way as to prevent damage to the lacquer?

 

Assuming it does post, does this mean it is not based on the (lovely, I've got one) Izumo?

So your budget stretched? :yikes:

 

It does look fantastic! I'm very jealous! But my budget is completely ripped to shreds this month and there is no way I could afford one even with the 20% off. My good lady wife is already looking a bit askew at the 5 pens I have sitting on my desk at the moment. And the 4 bottles of ink. She doesn't know that a Deep Dark Brown will be turning up today (thanks to reviews by you and The Good Captain, I hasten to add!)

 

Congrats on your new family member! :D

Now: what ink should I use first time I fill it? Carbon Black is the obvious choice, but I am looking for something less obvious. It is a medium nib, btw.

Just posted on your entry in the "show us your pens" thread. How about Herbin Ambre de Birmanie as a "tigery" colour?

Oh that is just beautiful. I *need* that pen so much. Sadly out of my price range but I can still admire it from afar

I'm sure, if you asked nicely, Mr. Cybaea would lend it to you indefinitely :rolleyes:

Hmmm, they sold out quickly :) You can all breathe now. No more temptation.

Other than the Izumo, of course.  :lol:  And all the others. :rolleyes:

If I had the money, I probably would have gone for the green Izumo anyway. But it's good that the King of Tigers has left the building... Just in case a mad moment took hold!

 

Looking forward to the review. Which ink did you go with in the end?

Haven't decided. It has been a computer day today and I have some issues with another pen that I had to try to sort out. Still looking for suggestions ;)
