  1. Hello All, My first inclination would have been to put this in Pens from the Land of the Rising Sun but, I think a commercial artist or illustrator from the general membership will likely have the answer. A couple of months ago, I purchased the basic synthetic tipped Kuretake brush pen, because it is compatible with all the cartridges and converters that I already have for my beloved Nakayas and Platinums. I have thoroughly enjoyed using it for gesture drawing and little impromptu sketches. So much so, that I just had to try the 'weasel' hair model; which I ordered from Taizo (engeika).

    Kuretake Kyara - Dark Green

    Recently, Mike at Vanness Pens sent me a sample of Kuretake Kyara with my order. Thank you, Mike, for providing this lovely ink. It is a pleasure to use and review. This ink is a lovely dark green, almost black ink. It is highly saturated and lightly scented with agarwood. I am generally very sensitive to scented ink, but I do like this one. It is not overpowering and seems to dissipate quickly. It leaves just a very slight, lingering woodsy scent - wonderful for the fall! The bottle the ink comes is in beautiful. It is a limited edition bottle in the Edo Kiriko pattern. While I hav
  3. Greetings everybody! I am a new member here in FPN and I am actually quite nervous to be here (this is actually my first post so NICE TO MEET YOU ALL) So let me get straight to the point: As the title said, apparently I heard that Kuretake is having their 110th Year Anniversary soon (?) and will likely released some limited models, which I would love to have The problem is, I have no more information but that I stated above since their web page have no notice whatsoever and I am left with only this handout (https://imgur.com/a/HBT8CDT) So if anyone have any ideas about this, I would love

    Black Ink For Kuretake Brush Pen ?

    Hi all, Hopefully this is the right place to ask… I've recently acquired a Kuretake no. 8, and the first cartridge is almost gone, so I'm about to purchase more ink. The Kuretake comes with cartridges of a black ink which seems fine to me (I know nothing about ink and only started ink work). However I'd rather buy a bottle of ink and refill the cartridges than buy cartridges. There are some ink comparisons on the web, but they focus on waterproof alternatives, since ink from Kuretake cartridges is not, while actually I'd prefer non-waterproof ink. Any advice from other Kuretake brush
  5. **Moderators - feel free to move this thread to a more suitable place in the forums if needed!** This is actually my first ever post on FPN but I've been lurking a long time in the forums largely because I have always felt that I had more to learn than contribute regarding my knowledge of fountain pens. But anyways, this thread is intended to share my journey of exploring the world of painting with fountain brushpens and fountain pen inks. While I am definitely not an expert on them, I believe I may have some nuggets of info worth sharing especially since I have come across questions and e

    Kuretake Ink

    I bought a Pilot Namiki pen recently from a pen store in Japan. The pen shipped quickly and was all that I had hoped for, but with it came a 60ml bottle of Kuretake ink, gratis. The only thing on the box or bottle that is not Japanese (which I cannot read) is the company name: Kuretake - the volume: 60ml - and a catalog number: CE 100-6. And from their online catalog I learned that this ink is an older formulation (apparently susceptable to smearing if a designer ink based on alcohol touches it), and it's named "Manga Black". The ink is a deep black, and it covers well when swabbed (qual
