DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
Every year the Japanese send postcards to family, friends and business associates for the New Year. Called "nengajo", the postcard greetings are bedecked with beautiful Japanese handwriting. Many companies outsource to agencies where professional people (usually retired individuals with beautiful brush handwriting) write names and addresses. The tradition results in a wide variety of high-quality brush pens and markers available in the Japanese stationery market.

The Ohto Fude Ball pens are actually ball pens made to write like brush pens. It has broad lines great for writing names and addresses on postcards but writes smoothly and lusciously like a brush. The ball tip makes it easier to control and use the pen for writing compared to a brush pen.

Love this pen! I do a lot of mixed-media work, and this pen writes quite well over layers of paint and ink. The ink is nice and dark and I love the broad line. It's also quite permanent (when dry), too (I can't paint over it and it doesn't smear out). I just bought 3 more!

This has got to be my favourite pen. The lines it makes are so generously thick and bold. The parts of this pen are real top quality Japanese made. If you are a fast jotter, this pen will definitely keep up with you, the ball has a great smooth roll to it, and the ink is quite a rich black. Very happy with my buy, will definitely buy more!

UPDATE: After a few weeks of use I have to completely reassess my earlier review! It seems that this pen must have needed a little bit of startup time, but now both of them write beautifully! Dark, juicy lines that draw your attention, and the huge tip just glides across the page. I only wish it were refillable!

Great pen. Writes like a fountain pen. Lays down a heavy, smooth broad line ink flow. Doesn't skip. It's a winner if you like broad line pens. Now Ohto needs to give it an upscale chassis.
