*Nib holder only — nib sold separately.

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

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.
