Shu-Jen Lin is the brand manager for Taccia at Itoya USA. She has been a fixture at pen shows and in-store events across the country for who knows how many years. Taccia has always been a more moderately priced brand, but as of late Shu-Jen has started ramping this up quite a bit with a collection of some really higher end Maki-e pens. More on those another time. Today I’m writing about a new collection of Taccia fountain pen inks. Shu-Jen introduced them back in August at the DC Pen Show. Taccia and Nakabayashi (one of Japan’s largest office product companies) joined forces to create this amazing collection of 13 different ink colors. All these Taccia fountain pen inks come in a very elegant glass bottle with a highly polished cap. Its 40ml size ensures you’ll have an ample supply, but won’t have to make a long term commitment like with other inks coming in 50-80ml sizes. As one might expect we have the standard blues, blacks, reds, and greens but things do get better from there.
