This inkstick is ‘Suzuka-sumi’, an oil smoke ink made from soot obtained by burning canola seed oil.
It is a representative gem of Suzuka-sumi, and is an elegant black-brown ink color. Optimal for the width of kanji (Chinese characters) strokes and allows for stretchy brushstrokes.
It can be used regardless of whether styling kanji or kana. The ink flow is quick, and the dark ink gives a glossy finish. You can freely express blur or faintness.
It is a beautiful ink with a soft brown color peculiar to seed oil smoke ink.
＊The back side of Suzuka Sumi (Ink stick) has a map showing a part of Japan. Why not find the location of production site Suzuka City on the map.
As it is a luxury item, it is ideal as a gift for those who are looking for good ink, those who want to start calligraphy in earnest, and those who have a liking for calligraphy.
