Wa Fude, or literally “Japanese brushes”, were carefully selected for their high performance qualities.

Beloved in Japan for their superior performance in calligraphy, these brushes each boast unique characteristics that artists will appreciate for different styles and techniques, whether it be lettering, sumi-e or watercolor.

The spring and snap of these natural bristle brushes make them perform quite differently from our other sumi-e brushes, providing a variety of performance options to suit different artists’ needs.

Each brush has a hanger loop and a protective cap.

Packaged in a peggable clear bag with descriptive insert.
