A wonderful ink stick made from the smoke of the finest canola oil with ultra-fine particles. 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.

When you make this sumi ink darker, it will be a deep black color with a glossy sheen. And when you make it lighter, it becomes brownish black. It is suitable for sutra copying, calligraphy, ink painting, and all other uses.

This inkstick depicts a single Japanese plum blosom. Plum blossoms are the symbol of the Kobaien.
