Travelers’ Treasures / Reed-Calligraphy Pen

Japan is the birthplace of brush pens. Now, with this calligraphy pen, the ink stone, the ink and the brush pen have become one, so they are very easy to use in modern life. Also, this compact structure is an item of curiosity for foreigners. The Reed Calligraphy Pen is born of environment preservation activities implemented by Shiga prefecture, mainly in the area of Lake Biwa.

The body of these pens is crafted out of carefully selected natural reed from Lake Biwa’s Yodo River water system. Each pen is designed around the form of the particular reed to highlight its beauty as it grew in nature, which means that no two pens are alike. There is no other like it in the world. These handmade pens offer the smoothest of writing experiences.

Not only is it perfect for addressing traditional New Year cards and gift cards; it is also an ideal brush for drawing wherever you are in the world. Light and versatile, the brush pen makes a perfect travel companion that will help users forge and expand relationships across borders.
