A handcrafted dip pen nib made of stainless steel by Kakimori.

Enjoy the smooth writing just like a fountain pen with this maintenance-free nib. After use, simply rinse with water and wipe dry. This pen nib would be great for a dip pen beginner. 

The nib is adjusted by hand one by one to achieve ink retention that enables writing just about a sentence with one dip. Kakimori has created a dipping pen with a shape similar to a fountain pen nib through trial and error so that it can write without snagging. The length and size of the pen were carefully selected to ensure that the pen looks beautiful when inserted into the nib holder. The finish gently absorbs light so that the pen blends easily with any type of pen holder – we have the Sakura cherry wood holder in stock. 

Dimensions: (W)0.35" x (L)1.3” x (D)0.1”
Material: Stainless steel, Iridium tip
Made in Japan.

Use and care

  • When removing the nib from the nib holder, gently pull it out while turning to avoid dislodging the nib mount.
  • Strong impact to the precision-made nib may compromise ink flow.
  • To prevent the build-up of dry ink in the grooves, rinse frequently in water during use.
  • To remove stubborn dry ink, gently scrub in water with a soft toothbrush.
  • If using detergent, a pH neutral detergent is recommended. Avoid alkaline detergents as they will damage the surface.
