The body of this Platinum #3776 Century Oshino fountain pen, which is transparent like clear waters, matches perfectly with any ink color. It comes with a Platinum ink cartridge and a converter for use with bottled ink, and it features a rhodium-plated 14k gold nib.
Launched in 2011 as the first edition of the Fuji Five Lake series, "Motosu", with its completely transparent body, has drawn a great attention. Seven years since its launch, Platinum is now introducing "Oshino", which has a clear body of a higher level of transparency. Created by pursuing a transparency like clear waters, this new fountain pen has been named after Oshino Hakkai, which is a famous destination for the beautiful springs sourced from the underground water of Mount Fuji. Platinum is proud to add this product to their #3776 Century series that bears the height of Mount Fuji in its name.
A special part with a motif of Mount Fuji is placed at the crown of the pen. In addition, a method of etching is applied to the cap ring to provide a three-dimensional effect, which makes the pen even more precious. In commemoration of the launch of Oshino fountain pen, it comes with a blotter card with a serial number for the initial 3,000 production lots. The back of the card may be also used as a blotter paper.
