  1. TACCIA 8-pen Kimono Pen Roll (Mosaic pattern) TACCIA is a Japanese stationery company, that - as far as I know - is now part of the Nakabayashi group. They offer high-quality fountain pens, inks, pen-rolls, notebooks, etc. One of the products TACCIA produces are beautiful Kimono Pen Rolls, that are crafted with Nishijin Kinran, a traditional Japanese weaving technique that is in use since the 5th century. The patterns of these elegant Japanese pen wraps are inspired by the traditional Japanese Kimono robe. A couple of weeks ago, I bought the 8-pen ve
  2. Someone requested a review of this ink since they saw that I had the Red Soil. This inspired me to get on with it, as I was very curious to see what kind of green it was. Rust green, what could that be? This is a very interesting green. Some subtle shading, enhanced by the sheen. The latter is sometimes dark, contributing to the shading, making it quite dramatic. The sheen is definitely red, but often quite dark. The camera picks up the reflection, making it look pink. But it varies depending on light, ink concentration on the paper, and the paper itself. Sometimes the sheen appeared very me

    Taccia Hyakko Hisho II fountain pens

    Taccia Hyakko-Hisho II fountain pens are made of ebonite with a hexagonal or round body and decorated in a Kawari-Nuri lacquer layer. Kawari-Nuri includes experimental urushi lacquer techniques in which different additives, materials, and methods are brought together. The results are surprising with playful motifs in which chance plays an important role. The Taccia Hyakko-Hisho II fountain pens are limited to 50 pieces per design. Five new designs are added to the five previous ones! https://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/taccia-japanse-pennen We ship worl
  4. I hope this review will be interesting to some of you since I have not found many reviews of the urushi pens made by Taccia. As soon as I ordered the pen I resolved that I would post a review - good, bad, or indifferent - since this is a less-known brand and it is hard to be confident in advance what the pens will be like. As it turned out, the pen surpassed my highest hopes and I am thoroughly delighted that I purchased it. Background: Taccia is a small fountain pen and ink manufacturer, established in California in 2003. The company was sold in 2016 to Nakabayashi, a Japanese stationery ma
  5. Introduction and Elephant in the room First paragraph same as Taccia cha so ignore if aware (info on bottle if interested). First let me take a moment to address the elephant in the room, box and bottle. Bottle has big mouth for any pens is no issues with filling, but then when ink is low might not be easy to get last drops of ink...I can’t be sure cos I cannot see any mechanism to help here..still a nice bottle overall. Box is not paper like most inks (not 100% at least) it sure does not feel like one, more durable and stronger with inside fins designed to keep ink from movin

    Taccia Cha Review

    Taccia Cha ink review Disclaimer- First ink review here and would appreciate pointers if I missed something or if there is any information that one needs to know specifically not mentioned here also I lack other browns to compare color big apologies I don't have too many inks. First let me take a moment to address the elephant in the room, box and bottle. Bottle has big mouth for any pens is no issues with filling, but then when ink is low...I don’t know cos I cant see any mechanism to help here..its just a nice bottle.

  7. Taccia overview: Taccia is a Taiwanese-American brand started in California, that has been recently been bought by the Nakabayashi company. Nakabayashi is a maker of a long list of home and office products who have, under the Taccia brand, begun making fountain pen inks. All Taccia inks are made in Japan. There is some speculation as to whether Sailor makes the Taccia inks, but I have found no evidence to prove this. What I can say, according the the information I was able to gather is that at the time when Nakabayashi bought Taccia and wanted to release inks under that brand, they
  8. The Paper Plane - TACCIA Ukiyo-e Prime A5 notebook I've been enjoying this little corner of the web for some time now, mainly focusing on inks and pens. But these are more or less useless without the humble paper or notebook that will let you capture your thoughts. So here comes the "Paper Plane", where I review some of the paper and notebooks that I've enjoyed using over the years. Today's guest is the TACCIA Ukiyo-e Prime A5 notebook, a small and elegant notebook with some very fine paper. This TACCIA notebook is a rebranded form of the Nakabayashi Prime A5 notebook. In fact
  9. Lovely ink that I did not expect to like. Good flow, dries fast, and just plain works even on less than stellar paper. Taccia Koiame by Ja Ja, on Flickr Taccia Koiame chroma by Ja Ja, on Flickr Taccia & Nakabayashi boxes koiame by Ja Ja, on Flickr
  10. Recently, I acquired several samples of Taccia Ink. Taccia Ink is newly developed in California, but made in Japan by experienced ink makers. There are 13 colors that are vibrant and pleasurable. The inspiration for the colors comes from the "Japanese way of seeing colors in a pure, honest and innocent way". The bottles are similar to Sailor bottles, but I do not know if they have the pen filler insert since I have not purchased a bottle yet. (Photo compliments of Vanness Pens) This is a lovely ink that is a well saturated red that goes from a medium violet red to an inte
  11. This is the third review of the four Hokusai Katsushika inks from Taccia/Nakabayashi that have reached American shores. I didn't know what to expect with this ink. Would "Light Blue" mean a lighter, brighter color, more like a turquoise? Would it simply mean "not dark"? The truth of the matter is closer to the latter than the former. In a dry pen this will be more of a pastel, light blue. Very readable, with excellent shading. In a wetter pen the shading is still there, in a greater range of values (light-dark), and a bit more saturation. But I'll admit that I wasn't delighted by this ink like
  12. I haven't done any ink reviews in a long time, but I also haven't acquired any inks in a long time. I wasn't really looking for any inks but was looking through the Taccia inks and noticed some new ones. Since Taccia was bought by Nakabayashi, it seems like the Taccia brand is being used to offer interesting special inks. There is a new series based on the Ukiyo-e printing of 17th century Japan. https://www.nakabayashi.co.jp/_files/EnProduct/0/82/pdf/TFPI-WD42-e.pdf The packaging is very nice as in the pics above and my own: Tested with two pens, a Sailor 1911 Std (M) and an Edison
  13. This is a brief post to share a really pretty urushi pen from Taccia. Done in yakumo nuri or thick cloud lacquer the blue base and golden clouds really sings. This is an attractive and very photogenic pen. As is the case with all these Taccia Reserve LE based pens it is also a great writer with their Sailor nibs. The music stub feeds from a CC and writes a wide, well controlled somewhat wet line. The cap has a slip n seal mechanism so can leave unattended for some time and will still write right away. While not slated for production there are some other colors still available at Chatterly.

    Inklings - Taccia A O Blue

    Recently, I acquired several samples of Taccia Ink. Taccia Ink is newly developed in California, but made in Japan by experienced ink makers. There are 13 colors that are vibrant and pleasurable. The inspiration for the colors comes from the "Japanese way of seeing colors in a pure, honest and innocent way". The bottles are similar to Sailor bottles, but I do not know if they have the pen filler insert since I have not purchased a bottle yet. (Photo compliments of Vanness Pens) This ink can be summed up in one word: WONDERFUL! I have very rarely used an ink as pleasurable to writ
  15. I am thinking about getting a Nakaya Decapod or a Taccia Kaku-Tate, but I am not sure how they compare to each other: Does anyone have a picture with both of them, maybe even together with another pen like a Lamy 2000 or Safari? As far as I can tell, the Nakaya Decapod is significantly smaller and a bit slimmer, since it is also slightly tapered towards the ends. But does the Taccia Kaku-Tate really look "bulky" in comparison? Thanks a lot in advance!
  16. Taccia Uguisi Review of a sample of Taccia Uguisi received from Vanness Pens. Taccia inks are "born in California", but manufactured in Japan. Vanness calls the color "olive green". I am not sure that I would label the color that way. It is a balanced green with a strong blue component (see chromotography below). The ink is not strongly saturated but dark enough in fine nibs to be quite readable and much darker than Pilot Iroshizuku Chiku-rin. The ink flows very nicely from the nib, and is lubricated in much the same way as Sailor inks. There is a very nice reddish-copper colored s
  17. TACCIA DAIDAI (ORANGE) Review of a sample of Taccia Daidai received from Vanness Pens. Taccia inks are "born in California", but manufactured in Japan. This is a very nice orange color - well balanced and strong - not yellowy-orange or reddish-orange but a strong orange-orange. The ink flows very nicely from the nib, and is lubricated in much the same way as Sailor inks. This ink has no sheen and moderate shading even on Tomoe River paper. It dries fairly quickly and has some water resistance. It does not bleed through or show through except on very cheap paper. Pros

    Taccia Kuro (Black)

    Here is a look at Taccia Kuro aka black. Simple name for what appears to be a simple ink but this one has some surprising depth. This is from the Nakabyashi stationary company but is really no doubt made by Sailor. The ink is well lubricated and relatively free flowing. The color is just black without hint of another color or any sheen per se. It is, however, fairly saturated and can form a black "sheen" that is almost like a glossy lacquer. The writing properties are really quite nice. It can show through but does not bleed through and resists feathering. There is little to no shading p
  19. Here is my Taccia Kaku-Tate Thin Strip LE urushi in navy or ao-tamenuri. This is an urushi lacquered faceted ebonite body pen with gold Sailor music nib branded Taccia. The finish is tamenuri so it has a navy (ao) basecoat that is covered by many layers of semi-transparent urushi that allows the base color to show through. It's an attractive and living finish in that the top coats will gain transparency over time. Full size pen in length but slender making it nicely balanced and easy to grip. It's ebonite and so weighs very little. Some folks evidently are put off by the nib size. Many a
  20. Hello everybody, just wanted to let you all know we have some fun things going on this weekend at Dromgooles. Saturday 10AM-5PM Brian Tighe will be here showing off his custom knives as well as displaying his son Grayson Tighe's pens.(WOWWWW) Shu-Jen Lin will be here featuring Taccia's newest products including Maki-e, inks, regular product line Ryan Sirignano will be here with Montegrappa, Aurora, and Esterbrook including the Montegrappa Samurai and others David Oscarson will be here with his new Golden Spike as well as artist proofs and short run limited edition colors. After the day e
  21. Recently, I visited my not so local local pen shop, Dromgoole’s in Houston, TX and unexpectedly picked up this Taccia pen. I’ve only ever had one other Taccia pen and I can’t remember when it was the last time I inked it up. On plenty of occasions I’ve picked up a Taccia Tanto LE urushi pen only to put it back down again. Not my cup of tea. Then I read in the April 2018 Pen World about Taccia, its founder, and its acquisition by a big Japanese company. The article featured some really good looking urushi pens in normal pen shapes. I did want to see them but was not expecting to see them. To my
  22. I've been looking for a pen pouch that would accommodate some of the bigger pens in my collection, which lead me to this wonderful Taccia single pen pouch. According to Taccia, the pouch has a capacity of up to 7/8"(22 mm) in diameter X 7"(178 mm) in length, so it has no trouble swallowing an Edison Collier with some room to spare, and the inside feels like it won't scratch any pens. Besides being quite practical, what really drew me to this pouch was the material, with its gorgeous shiny gold inlays. It's relatively expensive at $26, but it's a price I would gladly pay again for the sheer joy

    Taccia Covenant

    Why do I find myself liking this pen at the back of my mind?! Anyway, since this has been happening, I've now reluctantly decided to possibly get one, I just need some extra ensuring that it's a good pen. Do you have one&can you point out why you like it or not, the flow, nib, design, etc.? Thanks! ~Yuzuki Hashimoto http://www.fountainpenhospital.com/images/taccia_images/TCV-129F-PS.jpg
  25. Been doing a bit of research on this pen and cannot find any information on it. Looking for a Model and Pricing. Purchased over 3 years ago as part of a lot from another FP collector. Chrome plated metal. Mint Condition. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction? It has a converter, takes international cartridges. And is 6" long. Nib is Medium, Marked "Iridium Germany". Thanks bunches for any / all information... Darla
