A while back I received the Platinum 3776 Century Nice Lilas. A beautiful pink limited edition version of the popular Platinum 3776.
The term limited is used loosely, the only limited nature of the pen being that the first 2000 come with a numbered blotter card. Pity that the pen itself isn’t numbered. Since I took this photo I’ve actually lost the packaging somehow, which was a bit lackluster.
But the pen itself is just gorgeous! It is a pink that tends towards purple and has a sand-blasted type finish. It came with a cartridge and a converter.
The hardware and nib are rose gold which complement the color nicely.
I chose a medium nib for this particular pen. Here are some writing samples with other pens with medium nibs.
This pen joined my small collection of one other Platinum pen, a 3776 in Chartres Blue.
Before I bought a 3776 I did some research and saw that there were many people who swear by them. I wasn’t too thrilled with the blue 3776 when I received it, but the pink was thrilling. I suppose I might just be biased ^_^ #suckerforallthingspink
I leave you now with a heartfelt thank you for all the support on Hippo Noto!
If you haven’t already seen, we have added two new #stretchgoals! A pen loop, and optional ivory tomoe paper. Also, in honor of meeting our #stretchgoal number 2, we are organizing another color option for this launch.

Well … I’m part of the crowd that swears by them. lI have the same combination as you; Chartres and Lilas. Apparently, a tiny bit of feedback is for ME, and I wasn’t even aware of that until I got the blue. I don’t know what it is, but these pens do something good to my handwriting!
About the Hippo Noto: I can hardly wait! Both the ink and the book.
Let me ask you … was 52gsm ever an option/consideration?

52GSM definitely could have been an option, however I felt that there were already a lot of good 52GSM options out there. I wanted to start with 68GSM and see where we go ^_^ A 52GSM version could definitely be in the cards someday though!

For me, the pink color was a leap of faith. It turned out to be prettier than I originally thought it would be.
