With its highly textured finish, the Platinum 3776 Briar Shell Sandblasted fountain pen evokes images of dark volcanic rock. Gold trim adds a touch of refined elegance to this naturally warm writing instrument.
In order to create this unique aesthetic, Platinum applies sandblasting to the briarwood. This removes the soft part of the wood, leaving the hard part of the grain to show through. After the surface is wiped with lacquer, the shine decreases but the durability becomes fortified, and the end result is a deep brown "shell" of a finish that provides visual and tactile delight. The smooth black section is perfectly tapered and provides a comfortable grip for most users.
Measuring just over 5 1/2" inches capped, this is a durable and well-designed cartridge and converter filled pen. The 3776 Briar Shell Sandblasted fountain pen utilizes Platinum's new "Slip and Seal" design, which tightly seals the cap to keep ink fresher for longer without drying out.
Platinum's 3776 Briar Shell Sandblasted fountain pen is provided with a 14k solid gold Century nib available inUltra Extra Fine, Extra Fine, Fine, Fine Soft, Medium, Broad, or Extra Broad.
These 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex - see our nib customizations page for more information.
