Platinum 3776 Century Fountain Pen – Oshino, Fine
Launched in 2011 as the first edition of the Fuji Five Lake series, “MOTOSU,” with its completely transparent body, has drawn a great attention. Seven years since its launch, Platinum is now introducing “OSHINO,” which has a clear body of a higher level of transparency. Created by pursuing a transparency like clear waters, this new fountain pen has been named after Oshino Hakkai, which is a famous destination for the beautiful springs sourced from the underground water of Mount Fuji. Platinum is proud to add this product to their #3776 CENTURY series that bears the height of Mount Fuji in its name.
A special part with a motif of Mount Fuji is placed at the crown of the pen. In addition, a method of etching is applied to the cap ring to provide a three-dimensional effect, which makes the pen even more precious.
The body of the OSHINO fountain pen, which is transparent like clear waters, matches perfectly with any ink color.
In commemoration of the launch of OSHINO fountain pen, it comes with a blotter card with a serial number for the initial 3,000 production lots. The back of the card may be also used as a blotter paper.
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:
- Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.
- Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.
- 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.
