Classic design, light weight, comfortable, well balance and great writer with a hint of feedback. I am happy with this purchase.

The Century series is Platinum's subtle redesign of the popular 3776 series pens. Utilizing a "Slip and Seal" design which tightly seals the cap to maintain ink freshness and avoid dry-outs, these pens promise to take the classic and affordable 3776 series into the 21st century and beyond.


It can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink, and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available. Like all Century series pens, the Black Gold utilizes Platinum's "Slip and Seal" design, which tightly seals the cap and promises to keep ink as fresh in the pen as it is in the bottle. 

The Platinum Century Black is provided with your choice of solid gold 14k nib. 
Also available with a true double-slit Music nib in the Century Black Gold Music Pen. Platinum 14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex - see our nib customizations page for more information. 

The Century Black Pen comes attractively packaged in a blue presentation case and includes converter and a starter ink cartridge.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
