New Fountain Pen Inks Coming from Taccia

Taccia fountain pen ink boxes

At the San Francisco Pen Show, I tried some new Japanese-made inks from Taccia that will be coming out later this fall, and I bought three bottles to take home. It’s always a treat to have a new ink brand entering the market, and Taccia seems to be working hard to create a very good product.

  1. I saw these inks at the DC Show in August and loved them. There seemed to be some confusion over whether Taccia would be able to distribute in the US at it seemed to depend on one specific shop agreeing to stock them (and if they said “no” then no one else would be allowed to carry them). I know nothing of the world of distribution so maybe this is a common situation – but it sounds as if it will be all systems go later in the autumn – so a belated thanks for bringing the good news!

    1. You are welcome, and thank you for that interesting info! Maybe Taccia needed a big order to show there’d be enough interest in the US to justify the expense of distributing here? I’m glad it worked out.

  2. Looks good! I somehow overlooked these at the show. They appear to be very good choices for vintage pens, giving the option of some nice color varieties without adding any danger to the (physical) situation. I’m also impressed by the price point of the inks. Thanks for giving these some sunlight!

    1. I think you hit the nail on the head. So far, they seem like very good everyday inks, and having all those colors is nice.

      I look forward to using them longer, too. I like to test the not-obvious things, like how they start up if neglected for a few days, and how they clean up. Which is why I’m the slowest reviewer ever. ๐Ÿ˜€

        1. Well, I think I’m a bit of the first mouse in this situation. I keep my pens inked up longer, so you don’t have to. ๐Ÿ™‚

          I just so happen to be working on a post about a different ink, in which that sort of adventurousness led me to a very nasty end. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sounds good, and thanks for the heads up on this. First and foremost I am an ink fanatic. I haven’t bought any ink in a good while though. I agree about the packaging, it looks perfect!
