I’ve always dreamed I’d get a needle-thin and reliable [doesn’t skip] fountain pen. I finally had it when I purchased the Platinum 3776 UEF.

One brand, 3 tips: UEF, F and the music nib. I think am done buying pens ….for the year.

I had the chance to use the pen when I did a sketch tribute for the late former Senator Leticia Ramos-Shahani.

Having a truly fine pen on a good sheet of paper really makes a difference when setting the tonal value of each drawing.

Testing the Platinum UEF [Ultra Extra Fine] nib.

After 4 hours..

And yes, this is what it looked like when done.

Final piece.

Pens Used: Platinum 3776 UEF, Sailor Fude de Mannen
Paper: Aquarello 220gsm
Ink: Noodler’s Heart of Darkness
