Sailor Chinkin Owl Limited Edition

Written by Catherine on Saturday 27 November 2021 in Japanese pens

The well-known artist Ms. Etsuko Tsurata, once apprentice of the Famous National Treasure Mr Shogyo Oba, created the Sailor Chinkin Owl using the Chinkin technique. The result is a painstakingly crafted bird of wisdom of which each feather can be individually viewed! The ineffable shape of the Sailor Chinkin Owl is created using silver and gold powder. The delicate flowers are made using the same Chinkin technique and colored with Kansitsu powders.

Yes, we stocked the Taccia jeans inks. It is incredible how silky and soft they feel when putting the ink on the paper! Try something different than writing and enjoy the range of blue hues.

Taccia Hyakko-Hisho pens!

Written by Catherine on Wednesday 23 June 2021 in Japanese pens

Something new from Japan: Taccia Hyakko-Hisho fountain pens! These sleek and a bit longer pens are made of ebonite with a hexagonal or round body and decorated in a Kawari-Nuri lacquer layer. Sailor makes the 14kt duo-tone nibs. Therefore the pens are filled with Sailor ink cartridges or a converter. Each Hyakko-Hisho fountain pen is limited to 50 pieces per design and comes in a nice Paulownia wooden box with pen kimono, two cartridges, convertor, and cleaning cloth.
