Platinum #3776 Century Fountain Pen Nib Set UEF, EF, F, SF, M, B, C, Music

Platinum has an incredible selection of nibs that are available on their #3776 Century model. I love the selection and in my experience, Platinum nibs are solid and reliable writers. They are firm overall and run on the finer side. Thank you to Platinum Canada for loaning me this outstanding set to share this video with you.

CONS
  • The larger bottle of ink costs quite a bit.
  • The color looks best in wide, wet nibs if you are looking for shading.
  • A little dry. 
OVERALL

If you're looking for a grey ink with more going on than just grey, the Spider Web Grey is quite interesting. It looks fantastic as an ink wash, in broad nibs, and is work appropriate and water-resistant. The bottle is great, the packaging is great, the color is interesting enough to add to your collection, and it behaves really well. Not inexpensive, though.


I received this item/these items free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
