A stroke of genius for the modern age

In this day when even ball pens are facing extinction from touch screens and keyboards, rediscover the textile pleasures of brush and ink on paper with Akashiya’s Fude Pens.

As Japan’s largest manufacturer of writing brushes with a 300-year history, Akashiya from the ancient city of Nara maintains the traditional handmade method of making fude, the calligraphy writing brush – a 14-step process, using a careful selection of 15 types of animal hairs to get just the right hardness and absorbency for a smooth calligraphy stroke.

At the same time, to meet the needs of a modern and mobile lifestyle, Akashiya has combined the touch of a genuine calligraphy brush with the convenience of a refillable cartridge pen in the Fude Pen. This fusion of traditional craft and modern technology presents you with the best of both worlds.

As each Akashiya natural bamboo fude pen is made by hand using natural materials, each pen is unique in terms of width, shape and colour, but consistent in delivering the rich and smooth feel that is part of the joy of calligraphy.
