  1. What is a "soft-fine" nib? Hadn't heard of that before :o

  2. I second Estivalia - can you describe a little of the difference between Platinum's F and SF, or maybe a picture of line difference?  I have a Motosu in F and it's awesome, but it writes on most paper in an absolute needlepoint - I love it for some purposes, wish it was a tiny bit fatter for others.  I know what the M and B write like.

  3. It means flexible, basically. The Namiki Falcon has a 'soft' nib as well. I'll determine how soft once I have the chance to play with them. This is the first time Platinum has used a soft nib in years, certainly before we were in business.

  4. I'm actually playing with this today. I'm told it's been a good 4 years or so since Platinum has used a soft nib on any of their pens, so I'll have to play around to see just how soft it is. I've dry tested it so far and I can say that it is quite springy, not so much so that the tines flex and give a huge line variation, but more that is just makes the nib feel smoother and more bouncy.

  6. Are you only stocking the two (KTC and Sepia) Noodler inks? Or is there more coming?

  7.  We'll have the Noodler's Upper Ganges Blue which is new to us, and some general replenishments like Red-Black that we've been out of for a while.

  11. Platinum's putting soft fines in the Black Century and Shoji, and I have a video using them here: http://www.inknouveau.com/2012/07/wed-review-platinum-3776-extra-fine.html

  12. I want the #3776 Bourgogne with UEF nib and the Celluloid Blue Midnight with a Rhodium plated Music nib. What is the problem to swap a Platinum nib? Are the "welded" to the section???

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, the UEF nib isn't available yet, the one I have is one I called in favors to get a hold of. If you notice in the video, it's on the 'old' model 3776, and the Bourgogne 3776 is the new Century 3776, which uses a slightly different nib/feed design to accommodate the inner cap seal that makes the Century 3776's so different. The same kind of thing goes for the celluloid, it uses a different nib than the 3776 so the music nib you see on the Music Pen (the rhodium plated music nib on an old model 3776) won't fit the celluloid. The nibs aren't welded or glued or anything like that, but the old model 3776 as well as several other Platinum pens are really, really set in their firmly, and usually require special tools to be able to remove the nib and set it back into the pen. I don't believe this is the case with the new 3776 Century's though.
