Extremely rare today, double slit Music nibs were commonly offered by major pen makers in the 1920s.

Smooth-writing and full of character, the Music nib offers a juicy, broad, expressive line.

This is a durable and well-designed cartridge-converter pen. It can be filled either with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, or with Platinum brand ink cartridges. This pen can also utilize Nakaya's hand-painted Maki-e converters.The Chartres Music Pen showcases Platinum's new Slip and Seal technology, designed to keep ink fresh and the pen ready to write.


See the semi-transparent barrel and the classic gold trim. "3776" is etched into the wide cap band, adding a personalized touch. "3776" refers to the height in meters of Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan. The "Chartres blue" color has been modeled in the likeness of the blue found in the world-renowned stained glass windows of the historic Chartres Cathedral in France.

The line width on the music tip is around 1.0 to 1.3mm on the broadest down-stroke and as fine as 0.3mm on the thinnest cross stroke. Because it is double slit, twice as much ink is available to the tip. This pen delivers ample ink. Please note that the Platinum Music nib is only available on Century Music Pens and not on any other model. Those wishing to use a true double-slit Music nib of this kind might also consider any Nakaya brand pen with Music nib.

The Platinum 3776 Century Chartres Music Pen offers superb finish and style with a true double-slit Music nib at a highly affordable price.
It comes packaged in a satin-lined presentation case and includes converter and a starter ink cartridge.
