The Kakimori brass nib was created as a durable and practical nib. The nib point has been rounded and polished with meticulous care, providing an exceptionally smooth writing experience that defies expectations. Tilt the nib below 45 degrees to create undulating lines and paint strokes. It is made to universal specifications to fit all standard nib holders and those from the Kakimori range. This nib is designed by Yuto Yamazaki of Kuramae-based design studio Alloy.
The maximum writing angle is 45 degrees.
When removing the nib from the nib holder, gently pull it out while turning to avoid dislodging the nib mount.
Strong impact to the precision-made nib may compromise ink flow.
To prevent the build-up of dry ink in the grooves, frequently rinse in water during use.
To remove stubborn dry ink, gently scrub in water with a soft toothbrush.
If using detergent, a pH neutral detergent is recommended. Avoid alkaline detergents as they will damage the surface.
Brass will develop a natural patina over time.
