Product information

5 star Koukaboku is an oil-smoke ink made from rapeseed oil, and is characterized by its very smoothness.

古梅園 五星紅花墨。菜種油煙,為紅花墨系列第二高級者。濃墨時為純黑色,稀釋為淡墨時呈現帶茶色的墨色。

When used as a dark ink color, it produces a beautiful black color similar to pigment paints black. The lighter the ink, the more grayish the color.

五 ( Itsutsu : five ) 

星 ( hoshi : star )

紅 ( kou : crimson )

花 ( ka: flower )

墨 ( boku : ink )

In 1739, Matsui,Motoyasu, the sixth successor of Kobaien, went to Nagasaki Prefecture in Japan.

There he interacted with  ink craftsmen of the Qing dynasty and collaborated with them on the production of ink. Koukaboku is one of the best inks born from that study.

Koukaboku is also known as “Ohanzumi ( The ink of flower ) “. Seien, five-star and four-star Koukaboku inks are made from rapeseed oil. Three-star, two-star, and one-star Koukaboku inks are made from Kouba-en’s original mineral oil.

SIZE(尺寸) W:Width(寬), L:Length(長), T:Thickness(厚), Wgt:Weight(重量).     

 

The smallest size 5star Koukaboku ( size 1/3 ) has a different surface design from the other size 5star Koukabokus. However, the five dots indicating 5star are engraved on it as well.

I love this sumi ink stick

The colors are great and very easy to draw.

We are also very happy. Thank you very much!

How does KOBAIEN ( 古梅園 ) make sumi inksticks in Japan?

How do you grind inksticks?

Ms. Junko Azukawa, a contemporary calligrapher and ink painter in Australia, explains how to use stickinks.
