TOKYO Teshigoto

Experience the superior texture of kumihimo braiding in your hand

Ryuta Fukuda—-third proprietor of Ryukobo—-a well-known, long-established studio in the traditional area of Nihonbashi—has created a one-of-a-kind ballpoint pen. It features a traditional naiki braid at the grip. The diagonally-running fabric, and its feel in the hand and fingers, engender a perfect fit as well as smooth writing!

The parts designed for this pen come together to create a structure that eliminates stress on the hands. The parts other than the kumihimo braiding are decorated and colored by Koji Orii, third in a line of artisans at Takaoka Doki.
