Model no. PTB-30000S #45. Dark green variegated celluloid barrel with gold-plated trim. 14kt gold nib. ‘#3776’ logo is engraved on the cap ring.
The nib of the #3776 is a beautiful piece of work – made in-house at , and all are hand-tested at the factory. This nib and feed is the same as that used in the legendary Nakaya Urushi pens.
The barrel is made by hand from sheets of celluloid which are rolled into the shape of the barrel rather than cast as blocks. Making the barrel in this way means that the craftsman can see the patterns in the celluloid prior to making the pen, allowing for the best variations in design to be achieved. It also means that there may be subtle differences between the pen you receive and the image shown here. As the celluloid is rolled into shape, there is a visible seam on each pen where the two ends of the celluloid meet.
The production of celluloid pens is time-consuming as each celluloid piece needs to be thoroughly dried over the course of at least 6 months to guarantee that the material will not warp or deform.
Fine, medium and broad nibs available.
