Platinum Century Rising Dragon

The follow-up to the highly popular Fujin Raijin, the Platinum 3776 Century Rising Dragon features hand-applied gold leaf over a Maki-e style motif inspired by a traditional screen painting created by 17th century Rinpa school artist Sotatsu Tawaraya. The memorable design and attention to quality and detail result in a pen that could easily be mistaken for a writing instrument costing three or four times as much.

The Century series is Platinum's subtle redesign of the popular 3776 series pens. Utilizing a new "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.

The Kanazawa-haku gold leaf base is applied using Momi Chirashi technique, in which the gold leaf is flattened to a thin sheet, cut into smaller pieces, and then pasted by hand onto the cap and barrel of the pen.

Equal care has been given to the writing qualities of this economically priced pen, which utilizes 14k solid gold nibs and Platinum's efficient cartridge-converter system.

The Rising Dragon can be filled with any bottled fountain pen ink, or with Platinum brand cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

 

The simple domed cap end and streamlined gold clip combine style with function.

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.

As its namesake suggests, the Rising Dragon literally ascends along the length of the fountain pen.

The Platinum 3776 Century Rising Dragon fountain pen ships in a simple presentation box which includes converter and starter ink cartridge.
