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_shiun/ https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/ghle49/leaked_images_of_the_supposedly_next_platinum/
Has anyone else fallen for the Platinum #3776 Yamanaka with a soft medium nib? It's a beautiful pen to be sure and I do have a fascination with demos. However, in this case, the nib is just as fantastic as the pen. I only had a sample of Platinum Mixable Silky Purple ink, but put it to best use by loading it in the Yamanaka SM. This might just be the smoothest duo in my collection. Call it a controlled glide with a little line variation. Platinum only made a limited number of the Yamanaka SM pens, but I hope the nib appears on more models in future. It's a worthy addition to the line.
