The writing tools we choose also touch our emotions. We sought to create a tool that inspires a lifetime of use, bringing joy to our hands and soul. Designed to universal specifications to fit all standard nibs, the nib holder will travel with you for a lifetime of writing.




MATERIAL FEATURES

The natural beauty of the woodgrain is accentuated by a deep indigo finish. Each nib holder has been carefully hand dyed by artisans using indigo grown in Tokushima.

USE AND CARE

  • Nib holder only — nib sold separately.
  • The nib holder will gradually brighten to a true indigo colour with use and handling.If the nib holder becomes dry, apply some beeswax.
  • Friction may cause the colour or beeswax finish to transfer.
  • To prevent distortion and discolouration, avoid soaking in water, sudden temperature changes or extreme heat, and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
  • When removing the nib from the nib holder, gently pull it out while turning to avoid dislodging the nib mount.
  • Due to the nature of the material and treatment, grain and colour will vary between pieces.
  • If marked with ink, wipe clean with a soft cloth.
  • After rinsing, shake well in a downward motion to remove any water or ink from the nib mount before inserting a nib.
