Description

SLIP & SEAL MECHANISM

It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the following problems can result:

  1. Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.
  2. Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.
  3. It can be necessary to clean the pen using the Platinum Ink Cleaner Kit or even to repair or replace the nib itself if the damage due to dried ink is too severe.

At the request of customers, Platinum Pen Company have gone back to the basics to deal with this problem. This is the first fountain pen which has their unique “Slip & Seal” structure in a pen with a screw-type cap. Thanks to this innovation, currently being patented, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness.

The innovative cap contains a unique “Slip & Seal” mechanism that prevents ink from drying out in the pen. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow. Founded in 1919, Platinum Pens is now nearing a full century of achievement. The #3776 “Century” celebrates this approaching anniversary and continues Platinum Pens’ tradition of technological innovation. With Platinum Pens, the pleasure of writing and the use of fine writing instruments will always be evolving.

The #3776“ Century” Fountain Pen. What qualities make for the ideal contemporary fountain pen? Sleek design, comfortable writing balance, smooth flow, and fast-drying ink… At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen have gone back to the basics to address these issues. Every part and mechanism has been carefully studied and re-engineered. The result is the #3776 “Century,” designed on the base model of the popular #3776 series pens.

    I ordered this pen with a custom 0.4mm cursive italic nib and the pen writes perfectly. It’s a good pen that is now great b/c of the awesome custom nib. Thanks Dan!

    Buying this pen from Dan was a pleasant experience throughout. Not only did I get a complimentary custom nib grind, Dan was always friendly and patient with my queries and never failed to reply my emails, usually within a day. The music nib writes wonderfully smooth and juicy, exactly what I had requested. I will not hesitate to order another pen from Dan. Thanks!
