gKAWAGUCHIh as the final model of Fuji Five Lakes series

Only the limited number of 2,500 pens
Release on July 1.2016


The g#3776h series was named after the height of the Mt. Fuji. In pursuit of our passion to create the best fountain pen in Japan and through accumulation of experiences, Platinum Pen has launched a product series inspired by the Fuji Five Lakes. Starting from gMOTOSU,h gSHOJI,h gSAIh and gYAMANAKAh are currently being sold.

This time, we are launching gKAWAGUCHIh as the final edition to the series. An image of the Mt. Fuji and the water of the Lake Kawaguchi waiting for the dawn in the pure silence is expressed with this new fountain pen.


Product Features

1. Body color
gDawn blueh refers to the gradation of colors at the dawn, when the sky is covered with the darkest blue just before the dawn. It is reflected upon the water together with the image of Mt. Fuji. We have incorporated such color into the transparent water of the lake. The contrast between the mirror-like surface and the quiet streams that ripples with breeze, which symbolizes the state of the lake at dawn, has been reproduced in the barrel using a technique to apply lustrous convex/concave patterns.

2. The expression of the Mt. Fuji
The part that resembles Mt. Fuji is placed at the top of the cap to express the image of the vague silhouette of the mountain emerging at the dawn.

3. The expression of the cap ring
Unlike the conventional engraved marks, we have applied three-dimensional letters for the first time with absolute attention to detail so as to reproduce a brand image suitable for the most prominent model of the series.

It is also employed with the gSlip & Seal Mechanismh of the popular g#3776 CENTURYh series that prevents ink from drying out in the pen with a complete airtightness thereby allowing those who only use the pen once or twice a year to write with fresh new ink.

We hope you enjoy g#3776 CENTURY KAWAGUCHIh that expresses the beautiful scene of the Lake Kawaguchi and Mt. Fuji at the dawning.

The #3776g Centuryh Fountain Pen What qualities make for the ideal contemporary fountain pen? Sleek design, comfortable writing balance, smooth flow, and fast-drying inkc At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen have gone back to the basics to address these issues. Every part and mechanism has been carefully studied and re-engineered. The result is the #3776 gCentury,h designed on the base model of the popular #3776 series pens.

SLIP & SEAL MECHANISM

  It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the following problems can result:

1. Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.  
2. Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.  
3. It can be necessary to clean the pen using our Ink Cleaner Kit or even to repair or replace the nib itself if the damage due to dried ink is too severe.  

At the request of customers, we at Platinum Pen Company have gone back to the basics to deal with this problem. This is the first fountain pen which has our unique gSlip & Sealh structure in a pen with a screw-type cap. Thanks to this innovation, currently being patented, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness.

   
  Changes of the amount of ink by time with a cap.
