The Platinum Karakusa Blue Celluloid fountain pen features a hand-engraved silver-filled pattern on a blue celluloid #3776 body with rhodium-plated trim. Throughout the predominantly blue celluloid is a varied blend of black and white marbling.

Celluloid is rare in modern fountain pens, due to the difficulty of making this material. It is flammable, half transparent plastic material which is made by mixing nitric-cellulose (sulfuric acid and nitric acid are added to cellulose), camphor and alcohol. Celluloid softens at 90 degrees Celsius and hardens when cooled. After the celluloid is made and allowed to cure over many months, the entire body and cap of this pen is then hand engraved with a floral motif, using the Japanese Chinkin technique. The engraving is then filled in with a metallic silver powder.

It accepts proprietary Platinum cartridges or a Platinum converter for use with bottled ink (both are included), and features a rhodium-plated 14k gold nib.
