There is no equivalent plain plastic 3776. These models have a snap on cap. The closest plastic version is the 3776 gathered. The wooden versions are available in briar wood (3types) and cedar. Thr cap and barrel are turned out of solid wood and It takes talent and technique to stabilise the wood with appropriate inserts to take the section and cap clutch etc. the cedar version has a uniquely engraved clip if that helps.

The pen itself is slightly longer than the regular 3776. The section is significantly longer than the regular screw cap 3776 because there's no thread. I find the section to be more comfortable. Mine also has a dual tone 18k nib as opposed to the normal 14k nib. However, it seems like Platinum switched back to the 14k nib at some point.

The wood body is nicely finished and I don't really know what Platinum has done to stabilize it. The traditional way (for wooden furnature) is to put a thin layer of natural lacquer, aka urushi for marketing purposes, on the top of the wood. The lacquer fills the small gaps on the surface and is also extremely durable. Platinum has done this to some of the Izumos but I don't feel like it's the case for that his pen.

 Thank you very much....

I have looked at 3776s, and I got thrown off by their feel.

So it's good to know that the 'woodie' feels different than the regular versions.

 

Size is same.

Beautiful. Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing them.

I have a Pilot Custom Kaede (maple wood) which is just about my favorite pen, but, the Platinum briarwood is also on my wish list. Youre nice photos here are making think it should be the cedar and not the briar on my wish list.

Wooden pens are so lovely.  Is it difficult to keep them from getting stained with ink?

Depends on how they were finished. Unfinished wood will stain. Finished wood can be any urethane, to urushi, to even resin impregnated wood may resist stains, really depends.

looks kind of... uninteresting for wood.

 

How much was it?

Its subtle in an understated way but I find it quite classy.
