Review: Kuretake Tegami Refillable Letter Pen
Finding a new toy is pretty exciting. This is my new toy, a Kuretake Tegami Refillable Letter Pen. I ordered this from Jet Pens for $4.50. Here's the link to the product. The main reason I ordered this is because I thought it might be a good tool for use in my etegami endeavors. Etegami is a traditional Japanese art form that has captured my heart. I've spent more than 11 months trying to locate the right kind of paper here in the US for etegami and was only successful last week thanks to Jet Pens. Here's a link to my favorite etegami website so you can get a feel for what it is.
The name says it's refillable, but I have no idea how. There's also virtually no information on the Jet Pens website and I wasn't able to locate any on the internet after a quick search either.
You'll see in the next few photos I snapped some writing and line work. This was all done on a Strathmore #110 Cover Stock in Arctic White. I'm a big paper nerd so I'm pretty sure none of you will have this paper on hand. It's a really solid paper and is very porous--you'll see the ink didn't bleed even as I slowly dragged the pen along the paper.
