How a Platinum nib is made.
Using a fountain pen is a special experience that simply cannot be matched by regular pens.
The Platinum Maki-e Century 3776 comes with an ink cartridge and takes Platinum's own brand of cartridges. Simply unscrew the back of the pen and press the cartridge onto the pen feed. Keep the pen nib down for about 10 minutes to allow the ink to move through the pen prior to writing. By using the converter you can use bottled inks such as Iroshizuku orBookbinders Snake Ink
To clean your fountain pen we suggest using lukewarm (not hot) water to clear out the nib and feed until the water appears clear. You can do this by dipping the pen in the water, or draw the water up inside as you do with ink and push back out. Then touch dry with paper towel and add fresh ink. The pen may write a little watery at first, but this is normal.
