i have 13 of 3776s and one nakaya. only one 3776 can be called scratchy, but it’s from the old stock (from the time when they didn’t have slip and seal cap). platinum nibs are very consistent for my taste, while having recognisable feedback.
@tedspens , could it be the case that you more sensitive to that feedback? if i may, i’d advise to try a pilot gold nib. those for sure are not scratchy at all
