That day, while shopping at Kinokunia book store, I found these.

Very elegant calligraphy brush for Chinese Calligraphy.

Made in Japan.  From Kyoto culture.

It has ink inside.  So, you no need to use additional ink.  It is good for Children so that why do not make a mess when they do calligraphy.

It also comes with very nice colours and pattern.

OK.  It is a bit pricy thou… It cost almost $10.

Now, this is the calligraphy pen that you can buy from popular book stores.  These calligraphy pen cost $1.85 (less than $2)

But the difference is there…

These 古都 Chinese Calligraphy Pen/Brush is very soft.  Unlike those that you get from Popular, which is stiff, and you cannot “bend” so much when you do a stroke.

This one, you can clearly stroke without a lot of efforts.  Means, you do not need to press so hard to produce a stroke, 撇,弯,勾,捺.

It really gives a feeling of Chinese Calligraphy using real ink.  Japanese really good in inventing these kind of things.

Let’s try it.  See, what I meant?  no need to hold it too stiff, and the ink will come out, and the strokes will come out very nicely.

Need to let me wife use, so that she can appreciate it, and justify why need to buy.  Whaahahahahahahahaha

Next, will be seeing how Jay Jay handling this.  Till then.
