Shibui North Tombo (B)

Hire cost:
Hire this Shibui North Tombo (brass) for just £2.00 per week!

Description (from the Shibui North website):
"The body of the Tombo was based upon the body of a dragonfly and is designed to fit perfectly into the hand when writing.

This is your simple classic desk pen. The design is timeless so it will never go out of fashion. This is a simple, minimalist design perfect to match an important leather journal or wooden desk.

As this pen is machined from solid brass, it is heavy, 78g uncapped. The sensation of the extra weight is very much an individual preference. Heavy metal pens can be hard to find as the trend lies more towards lighter pens, however, I still believe there to be a place for the more classic, heavier, built to last designs.

Brass will oxidise, and can be left to develop a patina or the shine can be restored easily with a soft cloth and T-cut polish."

The Bock nib is engraved with the Shubui North geometric pattern whist the body is engraved with a beautiful koi fish design.
