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 Sansui 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…

Fountain Pen #3776 Century Kaga Maki-e Poppy 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 Sansui 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 artist has added mother-of-pearl splinters here and there, especially in place of the pistils. To create this masterpiece, the craftsman 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 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 model 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.
