Midori Dip Pen

Midori Dip Pen
$ 28.00

The Midori Dip Pen is a perfectly simple tool that doesn't require a feed or a cartridge. This Dip Pen only needs a little bit of ink to write several flowing lines of text. So when you change colors, there's no waste or mess. Change inks at any time! Just rinse your pen in clean water and switch to another bottle of ink. No waiting for the feed to saturate; no half-empty cartridge to throw away.

The nib itself is quite familiar to Midori fans—it's the same distinctive 'bird's-beak' steel nib used in the Midori MD Fountain Pen, designed to make handwriting comfortable. You'll notice even more flexibility and responsiveness with the Dip Pen version, not because the nib is different but because the feed isn't there to make it stiffer and rigid. MD Dip Pen generally makes broader lines than the MD Fountain Pen for the same reason: the ink flow is controlled by gravity, not a fountain pen feed.

MD Dip Pen has a very smooth writing touch, especially in comparison to other dip pens, and newcomers to the world of dip pens will have no trouble getting this pen to work properly. The ink slides smoothly onto the page from any angle.

This style of pen—a fountain pen nib connected to a dip pen holder—has become quite popular in Japan over the past few years, because it offers the freedom and simplicity of a dip pen without sacrificing writing comfort.

The handle of MD Dip Pen is a standard European-style pen holder with metal prongs that keep nibs in place, set in a gorgeously minimal MD Cream colored body with a comfortable hexagonal shape, offering a similar grip and feel to a pencil. It sits comfortably in your hand and won’t roll off your desk. This simple, fresh-looking body of the pen is made from an environmentally friendly material consisting mainly of paper powder, which not only reduces the use of plastic, but also recreates the texture of a new page in pen form! This unique material has an elegant matte finish and matches MD Paper perfectly.
