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.

 

It's a regular 3776 with a wooden coat and fancy packaging.

Thanks for your responses as well.

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?

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
