【Product Information
It is a bamboo brush pen inspired by Kuroda Kanbei, known as one of the exceptional genius soldiers in Japanese history. The year in which he was born (1546) and the seal of his name used after he converted to Christianism (Simeon Iosui) are imprinted in the box.
Each pen is carefully handcrafted by a professional craftsman. The tip size of the pen is fine, perfect for writing letters and addresses. The ink is made from a water-based pigment that makes the writing long lasting, as once it is dry it won’t smear.
For the barrel it is used a natural cloudy-spotted Bamboo and the box is made from paulownia with a branding. It can be used personally or also as a gift.

【Material & Size
▶︎ Brush pen: bamboo / Box: paulownia
▶︎ Brush pen: approximately 17 cm / Box: 6×20×3.5cm

【How to use
▶︎ After removing the cap, turn the barrel counterclockwise and remove the grip section from the barrel, point the tip of the grip section upwards and insert the cartridge slowly from the bottom.
▶︎ When using it for the first time, after inserting the cartridge, point the pen downwards and wait for the ink to come out.
▶︎ Shaking the brush abruptly can be the cause of ink spilling out.
▶︎ When the ink comes out to the tip, make a trial writing to confirm that sufficient ink is ready.

▶︎ After usage, remember to close the cap.
▶︎ When not using, keep sideways.
▶︎ When carrying, make sure for the tip not to point down.
▶︎ If it is used with the ink from another brand, the ink may solidify.
▶︎ If the tip dries out, separate it from the barrel and the cartridge and soak the whole grip section in lukewarm water overnight. After taking it out absorb carefully the water left in the tip with a soft cloth, insert the cartridge and repeat the trial writing.
