This is my new pen, the Platinum Koi 3776 with music nib against vintage kimono silk and blue felt. A review may be forthcoming. Thanks for looking!

The band reads: Japan, Platinum and 3776.

The name Koi is aptly chosen.

 

As a person with partly colour-blindness these colours are not my favourite but it looks good.

 

The music nib will be very wet, I guess. I look forward to writing samples. I have a Sailor music nib which is WAY too wet for me so I am interested how the Platinum will work.

 

Enjoy your pen.

Thanks so much, sadiemagic.

 

Thank you, RMN. It is aptly named. It truly is. I've written with it already (In fact, I've used up a converter full of Apache Sunset.) and it's wet but not unduly so. I will photograph some writing samples shortly. I'd love to see the Sailor music nib and its output. 

 

Thank you, bitterwonder. Missed you at the last meeting and I'm not going to tomorrow night's, either. Just too much on my plate this month. Hope all is well with you.

Do you have to keep it in a pond and feed it?

It needs to be placed in a bowl of Apache Sunset every now and then....

Awesome pen I must have some day ...

 

A Maki Goldfish converter from Nibs.com is something I want for mine when the day comes!

 

Congrats and a writing sample is needed !

Those converters are beautiful, Earthdawn. 

 

RMN and perrins57, I do indeed feed it a steady diet of Apache Sunset! I'd like to vary its diet so any suggestions would be welcomed. ;)

Beautifully unique - congratulations on such a great acquisition.

I like your samples also. :)
