Kakimori ink

Our original inks are inspired by Japanese word play and imagery. Listen to the colourful conversations of dripping ink.

The evocative form looks as though a drop of molten glass has solidified. Filling the bottle with ink creates the illusion of two elements becoming one. The stable base prevents the bottle from tipping over easily.

The generous 20mm opening with an 8-degree angle makes dipping easy without damaging the delicate nib. The shallow depth allows for effortless refilling of converters and helps to keep your pen clean from unwanted ink.

The palm-sized bottle can be easily picked up and shaken. The 35ml size is suitable for several years of daily use.


Our pigment inks have been developed in an ongoing partnership with Japanese colour specialists Turner Colour Works. The inks can be blended with one another, and are designed to minimise clogging in nibs.

Lightfast and water resistant, even in the rain. For words that stand the test of time.

Dried ink on nibs can be removed using our cleaning solution.
