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 14-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 Sakura 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 Sakura Fountain Pen by Platinum – a floral model for a soft 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. Nowadays, this lacquer technique is still used for precious objects, including some fountain pens. Platinum’s 3776 Century Kaga Sakura 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. These are the flowers of the beautiful Japanese Sakura cherry trees. In Japan, this flower symbolises the ephemeral nature of both beauty and life.

To create this masterpiece, the Japanese Master 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. This delicate work of meticulous precision requires uncommon patience and attention. As all the steps are manual and non-reproducible, each piece is of course a unique work.

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 14 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 Sakura 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.
