The Platinum #3776 pen with Music Nib. is a modern classic amongst pens the basic design was created by Platinum in 1978 and variations have been introduced regularly ever since. Here the most enduring and simple design is teamed with a 14k gold 'music nib'. A music nib is designed for those who demand a bold look to their handwriting and the Platinum Music Nib is a superb example of the art of fine nib-making. The Platinum Music Nib is a true traditional three-tined with two slits and two breathing holes music nib, unlike some 'soft stub' nibs. Platinum's Music Nib is crafted to ensure a perfect balance between the width of line and a rich, even ink flow. The nib, however, does not flex.Although originally music nib was aimed at to be used for writing musical notes, they are also more commonly used for handwriting and calligraphy. The barrel is crafted from quality resin and the metal trim parts are well-finished and gold-plated. The pen is 136.5mm long, 14.5mm diameter and weighs 17.8g. Uses Platinum ink cartridges. Supplied with a converter for use with bottled ink. Platinum recommends Platinum Fountain Pen Ink, though of course any quality bottled ink can be used. The #3776 name comes from the height in meters of Mt.Fuji. Though nib is not flexed but “smooth as silk" is how the writing experience with this nib has been described. This pen is great for calligraphy or writing music notes, with a broader vertical stroke and a narrower horizontal stroke. It is really an italic nib, but it looks like a stub nib. It has an iridium point and it will last a long time. The most extraordinary feature of Platinum's 14K gold music nib is that has two slits, making it a three-tined nib which allows for a good but regulated ink flow. The Platinum #3776 Series Music Model Fountain Pen has a black resin body, gold-colored trim, and a screw cap. Comes with one Cartridge and one Converter. Lightweight pen more suitable for the small/ medium hand without posting cap but for a large hand with a posted cap. Highly recommend for those who are looking for real smoothest Music nib true to its name.
