I love this ink. This is my second bottle of it. It is so pretty and vibrant. Please keep it indoors. I moved to Idaho where it was below freezing this winter. Unfortunately my ink was in a storage unit for months. When I opened my ink this spring it was coagulated and separated. I had to throw it away. The freezing temperatures made the gold color separate from the bonding material used in the ink. So moral of the story, keep your ink in the house. It is beautiful for writing with a dip pen or for use with watercolor painting.
Kuretake Co., Ltd. was founded in 1902, focusing on sumi-e inks for traditional brush painting/calligraphy. In 1963, Kuretake developed its own sign pen, venturing into the writing instrument market. In 1973, Kuretake produced a fude (i.e. brush) pen, further expanding its product line in the pen space.
Today, Kuretake continues to leverage its expertise in ink production, modernizing many traditional painting/calligraphy instruments. For instance, Kuretake's fountain brush pen uses high quality hair to make the brush bristle and yet is able to take ink cartridges for easy transport. Kuretake's Fudegokochi and other disposable pocket brush pens are a newfound favorite for many comic artists.
Kuretake also makes various tools for scrapbookers such as KurePunch corner paper punch and box/envelope templates.
