Japanese Inkstone, 115 g

£6.98 £5.58

Handy double-sided bakelite ink pot and grinder, ideal for Japanese style shodo calligraphy or ink wash painting. One side can be used to grind traditional sumi ink sticks, the other is designed to be used as an ink reservoir and even has a little bump to wipe your brush on, ensuring just the right amount of ink goes onto the paper. Made from special lightweight and hard to break bakelite material, this ink grinder is more robust than traditional carved stone ink pots and has a special surface coating to make grinding ink super easy.
