Tamenuri Studio FAQ

How to buy?

I do not have and do not plan to have an online shop. Most of my pens are made in single pieces, so it makes little sense. I sell pens mostly on Instagram – I show all new pens on my profile and very often they sell in a few days, sometimes even minutes. When I finish more pens i put some of them here in Portfolio section. If you see anything you like – here or on Instagram – write me an e-mail or direct message on Instagram to buy it.

Can I order (commission) a fountain pen?

No. I do not accept commissions. I prefer to work on my own projects, without any “direction” or deadlines. Sorry, not sorry.

What nibs do you use?

Most of my pens take Bock 250 nib – so called #6. Some of them take Jowo #6, and some have two sections – one for Jowo and one for Bock in same design. Bigger pens are made for #8 Bock nib (380).

Nibs available are: polished steel (and this is standard unless otherwise stated), satine steel, gold plated, rosegold plated, 14k gold, 18k gold, titanium, platinum.

#8 nibs are only titanium or gold 14k, and come with ebonite feed.

Payment and shipping?

I do accept PayPal, but also direct bank transfer in numerous currencies (thanks to Wise). I do accept credit cards through PayPal system too.

I do not accept reservation unless it is fully paid.

Shipping – FEDEX, insured, unless other options are really necessary in specific cases. I ship worldwide, unless you live in North Korea (and somehow manage to see this) or some other “difficult” destinations. My pens are already in 40 countries from Philippines, to New Zealand and Australia, Honk Kong, India, most of EU countries to US and Canada. The only continent not represented is Antarctica.

Whats included with the pen?

Pens come with certificate, urushi care guide, nib, Schmidt K5 converter, single pen protective velvet sleeve, box. In some cases some other items are added (usually announced on instagram).
