Djd Has a New Toy
Fountain pen sketchers were talking about Fude pens. They looked very interesting. Then a friend let me try hers out. What fun! So I ordered one.
They come from Japan. It was expected to take 3 weeks but came after only one. Woo hoo!
A small origami was included in the package. This is a Sailor Fude (pronounced foo-day). It was originally meant for calligraphy. According to the angle at which one writes or draws, the line will vary in thickness.
The nib has a bent point. This one is at 55°.
Of course, I had to dirty some paper. A5
The pen comes with two cartridges of black ink, not permanent. So much fun when touched with a wet brush (carefully). I also ordered a converter which is on its way separately. This is basically a refillable cartridge. We will see how much of a mess I make with that!
