The Kanazawa Gold Leaf series uses a traditional Japanese golf-leaf application known as momi chirashi, which is used to apply gold leaf to traditional folding screens and sliding doors. Once the gold has been hammered into a thin square sheet, it's torn into smaller pieces and pasted to form a shape by hand. This creates not only a unique piece of art, but also an effect of immense depth to the finished product.
Fujin and Raijin are the gods of wind and lightning, respectively. This particular depiction of Fujin and Raijin are based on Tawaraya Sotatsu's work, "Fujin-Raijin-zu". It depicts Fujin and Raijin on the outer edges of two separate gilded folded panels, highlighting the tension between them. The empty space between them is a testament to their intense rivalry.

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.
