The Platinum 3776 Century nib is one beautiful nib. The nib is a 14k gold nib to match the gold accents of the pen. The pen takes Platinum proprietary cartridges and converter. Sadly there is metal inside the barrel so an eyedropper conversion for this pen is out of the question. Regardless, the Platinum 3776 Century with its cartridge and converter filling system makes it easy to clean and mantain.
The step from the barrel to the grip section is gentle and the threads doesn't cut the finger. The Platinum 3776 Century is light but it is well balanced with the weight falling towards the nib. The size and weight of the Platinum 3776 Century is just perfect for me.
The 14k gold medium nib performs prefectly for me. This isn't a springy gold nib it is relatively stiff though if you are willing to push it you can get very minimal line variation out of it. The medium is smooth and a dream to write with. It is a far cry when compared to the Platinum Balance that I have used previously. The breather hole is in a little heart shape a departure from the regular circle that is the norm for most other pens.
I must say the Platinum 3776 Century really surprised me. I didn't expect to like the pen as much as I am loving it. The Platinum 3776 Century will be defnitely be making an appearence in my Top 5 fountain pens for 2015!
