With Platinum's latest technology and innovative cap design, the "Slip & Seal" mechanism in this #3776 Century model prevents the ink from drying out for up to 24 months. This translucent red-amber fountain pen has very fine shimmering sparkles embedded in the resin, and is accented by silver trim. It comes with a blue-black Platinum cartridge as well as a silver-colored Platinum converter for use with bottled ink, and features a rhodium-plated 14kt gold nib.
Carnelian is a North American exclusive! For a limited time, it will also come with a special postcard.
