Platinum 3776 Century Fountain Pen

Platinum 3776 Century

The Platinum #3776 Century is a popular, entry-level 14K gold nib fountain pen. It’s the primary competitor to the (also popular) Pilot Custom 74.

The #3776 Century is sold in a huge range of colors including: Nice Lavande, Nice Pur, Black, Oshino, Chartres Blue with Rhodium Trim, Nice, Chartres Blue, Bourgogne, Black, Nice Lilas, and Black with Rhodium Trim. That’s a lot. Pictures above you can see the Chartres Blue, which is easy to find and very attractive. Some of the other colors will mean a rare pen or a higher prices, especially if you want the rhodium trim.

The #3776 tends to write on the fine side, which is often the case with Japanese fountain pens. Because of this you will want to buy a size up if you want to get the European equivalent. For example the broad featured in the video writes like a nice Euro medium. The nib range includes: Ultra Extra Fine, Extra Fine, Fine (Soft Fine), Fine, Flex, Medium, Broad, Coarse.
