Tetzbo Chibien - Antique brown


Chibien, meaning "mini pencil", is a ballpoint pen that gives the impression of a freshly shaved pencil. It has become a signature design for Tetzbo's creator and ironsmith, Yoshikazu Takai. Every step of the production process is carried out by hand.

  • As each item is individually crafted by hand, please expect slight variations in specification or feel.
  • The design is non-retractable and capless. We recommend the complementary Tetzbo pen rest for desktop use.
  • Surface patinas may develop faster in warmer climate regions, particularly in Asia.
  • For international shipping, pen tips will be sealed with liquid rubber to prevent ink leakage during transit. Please remove before use.
