Sakura Wood Nib Holder

A nib holder crafted from Japanese cherry. Used along with a nib and fountain pen ink, the holder creates a dip pen suitable for fine writing or illustration. Designed to universal specifications to fit most standard nibs, the Sakura Wood Nib Holder works especially nicely with Kakimori's metal nibs or pen nib, and pairs nicely on a desktop with their Sakura Wood Pen Rest

New to BGS is the Aizome nib holder, named for the deep indigo finish that enhances the cherry wood. Each piece is carefully hand dyed by an indigo artisan skilled in this traditional dying process. 

Materials: Japanese cherry (stem), plastic (nib mount)

Made by: Kakimori

Made in: Japan

Specifications: 7" long

Due to the nature of the material and treatment, grain and color will vary between pieces.

Nib not included


  • If marked with ink, wipe clean with a soft cloth.
  • When removing the nib from the nib holder, gently pull it out while turning to avoid dislodging the nib mount.
  • After rinsing, shake well in a downward motion to remove any water or ink from the nib mount before inserting a nib.
  • The color of the Aizome nib holder will gently fade to a true indigo with use. If the wood becomes dry, polish with beeswax to restore its luster.
