Today's the day I take advantage of Cult Pens awesome 20% off Platinum offer. My question is a simple one - how much better is the the #3776 than the PTL-5000? I'd be getting either with a medium nib. Aesthetics isn't really an issue - I'm interested in nib smoothness, flow and maybe weight. I know the #3776 is a classic pen and one that should last me a lifetime, but I'm intrigued by its cheaper brother. Any opinions will be helpful!
Just saw this pen on eBay today. First example I've ever seen of an all-black Japanese fountain pen (including nib). Judging from the pictures, the nib looks to be a M and reminds me too much of the Preppy, otherwise I'd be tempted to buy it myself. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Platinum-PTL-5000-All-Black-/110952999690?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19d5506b0a
