Black Diamond - a dark beauty!
The Black Diamond is another beautiful fountain pen in the 3776 line, which are my absolute favorites! This one is a transparent (or semi) black beauty with shining chrome trim. I own a half dozen of them in many different colors, all but one with soft fine nibs. They are in my opinion the finest, most responsive nib on the market. Lots of soft and flex nibs out there, nearly all of which I've tried, but this one gives my handwriting all the flair in a nice fine line - more like Amer. or Euro extra fine that flares easily to a medium. Not a wide variation in line definition, but the responsiveness of the nib allows me plenty of flourishing capability so I don't miss the fat lines. They are great for writing in my journals as I can write much smaller cramming in a lot more words and or drawings per page. If you love expressive nibs, this is the closest thing I've found in a modern nib to compare to fine vintage flex or semi-flex nibs. Amazingly responsive and expressive; warning, they are highly addictive, and very affordable. Thanks Platinum and Anderson Pens for making them available!
