The original #3776 series was designed by the late writing expert Haruo Umeda, known as “Mr. Fountain Pen,” along with the design team at Platinum Pen Company. Their aim was simple- to create the ideal fountain pen. The #3776 was made available to the public beginning in 1978. #3776 expresses the height in meters of Mt. Fuji, the highest and most beautiful peak in Japan.
The third edition of the Fuji Shunkei series is #3776 Century Rokka. Mount Fuji gets surrounded by a pure world filled with cold air in the silence of snow.
“ROKKA” reproduces such a pure and gorgeous view of Mount Fuji covered by snow and ice.
“Rokka” is another name for the hexagonal snowflake that resembles a flower in shape. The body is applied with a jewelry-like multifaceted pattern created by connecting snowflakes through a detailed mirror surface cutting. It represents the image of the snowflake that creates a different sparkle with the morning light that changes every moment.
The Platinum #3776 Century Rokka Fountain pen is limited to only 2500 pieces worldwide.
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 fountain pen has a 14kt gold nib and uses the Platinum converter or ink cartridges, but with the special Ink Cartridge Adapter it is also possible to use the Standard International ink cartridges.
In 1919, Shunichi Nakata, started his fountain pen business that would later be known as “Platinum Fountain Pen Co.”. The Japanese brand is closely related to the legendary Nakaya fountain pen brand, where some of the finest fountain pens in the world are created. This expertise also goes into Platinum's own line of fine writing instruments.
