Product information

This is a top-quality oil-smoke ink made with canola oil. This is one of the products in the "Shitsu boku ( 漆墨, Shitsu boku, Lacquer black )". category, which is considered to be the finest of all sumi inksticks.

Especially, this ink is made by combining rare, ultra-fine rapeseed oil smoke from carefully crafted rush lanterns and the highest quality glue extracted from rare cowhide.

It is an ancient form of inkstick that is wrapped and finished with the fibers of a thread gourd. It has long been regarded as "the best proof".

This is the best inkstick that has been cultivated for 430 years since the establishment of Kobaien.
