OHTO combined the style of a traditional brush writing pen with the mechanism of a rollerball pen to create the Fude Ball Brush Writing Pen. 'Fude' means brush pen in Japanese, and this pen creates a bold line with it's 1.5mm roller tip.
The Fude Ball pen writes smoothly like a brush pen and is easy to control like a rollerball pen. It uses waterproof and fadeproof pigment ink. For best results wipe the tip before each use to ensure clear writing.
OHTO was established in Tokyo, Japan in 1929 and began manufacturing high quality dyes & inks. The company has a long history of ink manufacturing as the founder of OHTO, Nakata Tozaburo, worked for the ministry of finance and invented a special ink for Japanese banknotes. Mr. Nakata went on to develop the first ballpoint pen manufactured in Japan in 1949. After the success of their 'Auto-Sharp' ballpoint pen, OHTO went on to design and manufacture the world's first rollerball pen in 1964.
The OHTO range now includes the original ballpoint and rollerball pens, as well as a range of writing instruments that suit your every need, from mechanical pencils to graphic liner pens, plus ceramic rollerballs, fountain pens and multi-function pens. OHTO continue to expand on their almost 100-year history of ink & writing instrument production by designing and developing new innovative products.
