Originally released in 1978, Platinum 3776, is one of Platinum's iconic pen series and over the years, Platinum has added many colors as well as limited and special editions to the 3776 line. 3776 stands for the height of Mount Fuji, the highest mountain and when it was first released in 1978, it was awarded the "Good Design Prize" by the Japanese government. In 2011, the "Century 3776" series was released in honor of the approaching 100th anniversary of Platinum and was designed to maintain the quality standards defined by the original 3776 combined with the needs of a modern fountain pen user: new sleek design, comfortable writing balance, and smooth flow. Century 3776 employs Platinum's own "Slip and Seal Mechanism" that employs a spring in the cap to force an air tight closure around the nib, thus preventing ink from drying out in this fountain pen for up to a year. 

To celebrate the release of Platinum Penʼs flagship model, the #3776 CENTURY, a series of fountain pens called Fuji Five Lakes was created from 2011 to 2016, followed by the Fuji Shunkei series from 2017 to 2021, which showcased the beautiful seasonal scenes of Mt. Fuji on the body of the pens using an advanced cutting technique. And now in 2023, a new series is being introduced: Fuji Unkei. Inspired by the incredible scenery of Mt. Fuji surrounded by wispy clouds, this series is designed to capture this natural wonder using a variety of decorative techniques. The debut pen in the Fuji Unkei series is the Uroko-Gumo.

The body of the new fountain pen has been cut into an irregular pattern in contrast to the regular patterns featured on the Fuji Shunkei series in order to capture the beauty and uniqueness of cirrocumulus clouds (Uroko-Gumo in Japanese). Incorporating slight indentations on the body produces a complex play of light and reflection on the pen body, creating a natural, beautiful aesthetic. The shadows cast by light passing through the body of the pen are reminiscent of cirrocumulus clouds and are sure to captivate.

The #3776 CENTURY Fuji Unkei series comes with a 20ml-bottle of specially blended Aka-Fuji ink to commemorate its release. Aka-Fuji (Red Fuji) - which takes its name from the famous painting Gaifu Kaisei, also known as Aka-Fuji, by Katsushika Hokusai, a well-known Japanese artist and ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period - features a unique gradation where the green color appears to change to a reddish tint with the addition of light, thereby mimicking the painting.
