The expert’s opinion: to say that this fountain pen is a marvel is an understatement, especially when you hold the object in your hands and identify each of the details of the motifs. For those who are not yet familiar with the art of lacquer, they will discover it in this object, each of which is by definition unique. The 18-carat gold nib, which is relatively soft, especially in the shape of its tines, is exceptional. It glides along so smoothly and gives you such a smooth writing on the paper that it does not need to be tamed. Furthermore, if you are one of those people who use their fountain pen occasionally, the 3776 Century Kaga Maki-e Poppy is made for you, thanks to the ingenious “Slip & Seal” system in the cap. Each time you pick up your fountain pen, the ink will flow naturally, as if you had just filled it. Added to the pleasure of the eyes, you will be fulfilled…

3776 Century Kaga Maki-e Poppy Fountain pen by Platinum – a colourful model for sublime writing

In imperial Japan, objects made using the maki-e technique were highly prized by royal families and military leaders as they symbolised power above all. Today, this lacquer technique is still used for precious objects, including some fountain pens. Platinum’s 3776 Century Kaga Poppy is an exceptional example.

While its brilliance immediately attracts our attention, it is the magnificent motifs on the barrel and cap that really catch our eye. Poppy flowers are depicted, their stems and leaves enhanced by the golden colour. The Japanese Master has added mother-of-pearl splinters here and there, especially in place of the pistils, using the raden technique. This consists of cutting out the inner lining of a seashell and embedding it in a lacquered background. The word “raden” is composed of “ra”, designating the mollusk with a spiral-shaped shell, and “den”, designating the decoration by the shell.

The work of the master lacquerer:

To create this masterpiece, the artist applies a layer of urushi lacquer to the fountain pen before drawing the patterns with ultra-fine brushes. He then sprinkles the designs delicately with gold powder before a second layer of lacquer is applied. As all the steps are manual and non-reproducible, each piece is of course a unique work. The Kaga Poppy is signed with the artist’s name at the top of the barrel.

The base of the fountain pen to which the lacquer has been applied is made of resin. All its trims are gold-plated. The thread of the section is made of metal. The model is equipped with the revolutionary and completely innovative “Slip & Seal” system, created in 2011 by Platinum: the inside of the cap is fitted with a spring linked to an internal plastic cap that provides a perfect airtight seal. This patented system prevents the ink from evaporating and the nib from drying out for up to two years without the fountain pen being used.

The nib:

The nib is made of 18 carat gold. Beautifully engraved, including an illustration of Mount Fuji, which 3776 refers to at its height, it is available in sizes F, M and B.

The 3776 Century Kaga Maki-e Poppy fountain pen by Platinum is supplied with its converter, whose metal part is gold-plated, and a cartridge. It will be delivered to you in a beautiful wooden box, set on a red velvet cloth.

  1. Il n’y a pas de mots assez fort pour décrire l’émotion ressentie en le tenant entre les doigts. Son élégance sublime l’écriture et améliore la créativité.

    • Merci, chère Sarah, d’avoir pris le temps de donner votre avis. Votre satisfaction nous comble de joie !

  2. The quality is great, as may be expected from Platinum; anyone familiar with the brand will know. This is not only a good pen, but also a beautiful piece of art.
    The M nib is comparable to a European F size nib; if you prefer broader lines, better order B. For me, M is as expected.
    For me, the pen is relatively small in my hand, but not too small (I am used to the size of a Nakaya portable).

Un contact humain et chaleureux avant l’achat, avec des conseils éclairés, sans qu’à aucun moment je n’ai la sensation que l’on cherchait à me vendre quelque chose. Et à réception un emballage parfait, accompagné d’un petit mot écrit à la main. Bon sang mais cette boutique est parfaite !

J'ai découvert le site de Nibs Plus Ultra en faisant des recherches sur la disponibilité d'un flacon d'encre Pilot en particulier. Je ne l'ai trouvé disponible que chez NPU. Une fois la commande passée, le flacon est arrivé en Belgique quelques jours plus tard. L'emballage était parfaitement adapté à l'envoi et au produit. Il était accompagné d'un petit mot pour faire connaissance. Service excellent.
