  1. So I am looking into purchasing a Platinum 3776 Celluloid at some point and noticed some things that I have a few questions about, so, here they are: 1.) Why are some models so much more expensive than others? Like there is one over $1,000 and there is another for $382. Why? 2.) Are they real celluloid or cellulose acateate? 3.) Is PenSachi a “legit” retailer? It is a lot less expensive like most Japanese retailers, and I was wondering if any of you in the US have had experience with this retailer, I would appreciate if you valued tell your experiences.
  2. Platinum has a new LE or SE (no idea) out in their 3776 Century line, the Shiun. The 4th in the Fuji Shunkei series. Meant to symbolize the purple clouds (ie "Shiun") around Mt. Fuji, a symbol of luck since ancient times. Diamond pattern on purple greyish resin, a demonstrator, as usual. Pictures leaked from a Chinese site a few days ago, now Pen Chalet has it in their listing. $470 (for now?!). https://www.penchalet.com/fine_pens/fountain_pens/platinum_3776_shiun_fountain_pens.html First seen here https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/gj43z8/limited_edition_platinum_3776_
  3. Hi fellow FPN-er, Any one have problem with Platinum 3776 century's gold plating? It started to corrode after 1 to 2 months, I had 3 of them and they all had the same problem. Couldn't find any info as to why it happen. I only clean my pen with soft cloth and plain water.
  4. The fisrt fountain pen that I bought was a Lamy Al-Star with a fine nib, which I like, then it came a Jinhao 599 (which I find a tad too broad for my taste), and then a few Platinum Preppy 03F (the one I like most). The fact is that I'd love to make a jump into a better category, so I was looking for a Sailor Professional Gear or a Platinum 3776. From what I have read those fountain pens write very smooth. What I would like you to tell me is which nib should I choose if I want something like the stroke on a Preppy 03F (on a Sailor and on a Platinum 3776)? Thank you very much.
  5. Hello everyone, I hope you are having a pleasant day, this is my first post so it's possible that what I'll ask may seem puerile and possibly amounting to faux pas, please pardon my ignorance if any of that happens. Who I am ? I am student from India, who has a very important exam coming up in 6 months. I own 2 lamy safari's and 2 pilot metropolitan's. Why am I here ? Where I live and where I grew up we barely have anyone who uses fountain pens. I started with them not as a show of elegance but because I had a tendency to right softly and ball point pens require certain pressure which made
  6. Do you have any pen and ink recommendations for book signings? My book of poetry just came out, and I've done two books signings with my Platinum Plaisir (fine) and Noodler's Baystate Blue. It actually worked out great, but I'd like to try out some other colors and would like to use some nicer pens. I'm a fairly new fountain pen collector, and I'm just starting to experiment with nicer pens. About my experience with the Plaisir/Baystate combo: I loved the bright color, it dried quickly (even though it's not supposed to be fast drying), and didn't smear. The Plaisir did fine, but being a ch
  7. Hey everyone. So I bought a Platinum 3776 SF nib second-hand, and it's been giving me some trouble. I don't know if it was like that out of the box, but when I received it from him, it was very dry. I try using different inks at first but I ended up modifying it a little. This didn't go down very well and the nib became rather scratchy. Luckily I got it repaired by the retailer but still it was not smooth like when I first acquired it. To make it smooth, I bought two sheets of lapping film (the same one as one in Goulet pens) and tuned the nib a little and it's got very scratchy again...
  8. I was wondering if any of you had experience using the Platinum Century 3776 and the Platinum Balance (or the Cool, which I think is the same as the Balance other than having a transparent barrel), and whether there's enough of a difference between the two to justify getting a 3776 Century. I have a Platinum Balance in Fine, and its a great writer. I also really like the Platinum Preppy with the Extra Fine nib, and I'm contemplating an Extra Fine in the Century 3776, though the Fine in the Balance might be good enough. I've been gravitating towards more rigid nibs with feedback (I've been co
  9. I am trying to decide between getting a pilot custom 74 with a medium nib and a platinum 3776 century with a medium nib. To me, their designs are similar but I am not sure how their nibs compare and what the big differences between the two are. If anybody is able to help I would greatly appreciate it.
  10. Hi everyone, I've just received this pen from an auction, advertised as a 3776 from the 80's with a 'unique' clip. Supposedly a fine nib, it writes with a very european medium line (although, I have to say, very smoothly). There is no Platinum branding anywhere on the pen itself (lightweight black resin) and it has a suspiciously modern 'plastic insert' push-on cap. I can't find any images anywhere of this kind of 3776 nib design, especially that logo beneath the 14k stamp. Nor the feed. Also the 14k stamp has a full stop after it ( 14K. ) and the air hole is circular as opposed to heart shap
  11. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/platinum-3776-exotic-wood I've never actually heard of this series but they look pretty nice, and platinums write pretty well too. Thought I'd share -Hikari
  12. Hello everyone, how are you doing? Does anyone knows this seller? Would you guys buy this? Im looking for a pen of the same brand and model but with the music nib, any suggestion for where to buy? (I prefer to have a pre-owned one) http://www.ebay.com/itm/PLATINUM-3776-CENTURY-Fountain-Pen-PNB-10000-51-CHARTRES-BLUE-With-Converter-/171625591407?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27f5aeb26f
  13. I recently saw this pen on Amazon for $59 CAD. http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B007R9Z3UO/ref=pd_aw_sbs_4?pi=SS115&simLd=1 It does say imported straight from Japan though, and it's Amazon, so I trust it more than most other sites.
  14. So due to a number of recent personal events, I find myself in the market for my first gold nib fountain pen! I'm very excited, and I've narrowed it down to a few options: Lamy 2000, Pilot Custom 74, and Platinum Century 3776 Nice Pur. I know that there have been a ton of similar threads from other newbies asking questions, but I thought I'd throw my thread into the ring anyhow... In particular, I'm curious to know how gold nibs compare to their steel counterparts in term of line thickness and general feel/writing experience. For example, is the Lamy 2000 M gold nib similar to the steel vers

Has anyone seen anything like this?

    Availability Of Platinum 3776

    Nearly 3 months ago, I ordered a Platinum 3776 Chartres Blue with extra fine nib from a Japanese online shop, but the pen is still not available. Apparently, the vendor goes through a distributor, who claims that Platinum is not giving the exact date for the availability of the pen. I'm quite surprised as I've read of others getting their 3776 pens from Engeika/Taizo (not the shop I'm using), but have not seen such a long waiting period. Is this common? I've been offered a refund or credit but I really want the pen.
  19. I'm currently housebound as I recover from leg surgery so I figured I'd do some pen reviews Thought I'd post a comparison of sorts of two variations of the popular 3776 model- the #50 Midnight Ocean celluloid and the Century Bourgogne demonstrator. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a50/LitlJaimo/Fountain%20Pens/3776ampCentury.jpg Thoughts- The pens are nearly identical in length with the Century just edging out the celluloid. The Century is lighter being made entirely of plastic whereas the #50 is I think cellulose nitrate. The Century Bourgogne is a beautiful, deep red in indirect light
