I meet a Korean girl that is learning Chinese and comes to a Chinese English Exchange Meetup in Flushing, New York. She told me about her Japanese Calligraphy pen set and showed it to me. I tried it out and thought I would try to get the same set at Amazon.com for $26. It took me some time but I was able to buy the same calligraphy pen set. I have bought several similar pens in Japan a number of years ago. These pens are good for quick writing and a quick practice without the hassle of the traditional way of using an ink stick and ink stone. I think it would be very good at classical Asian painting for those who would like to try!
I just found this card while going through some old papers. The picture was drawn by one of his friends.
