We added several new products from one of our favorite stationery lines. The Corda Desk Pen is the same high-quality as the Metaphys Locus series, but in a very unique form that is meant to be displayed on your desk top. The standard Locus Ballpoint Pen was recently discontinued by Metaphys, but we still have the Locus 3Way Multi-pen. We restocked those, and the latest version comes bundled with a free Viss Eraser, which happens to be one of our other new products. We also added the Rassen Paper Knife, a high-end letter knife unlike any you have ever seen. Finally, we topped up and restocked a couple of other Metaphys favorites.
A big box of restock just came in from Osaka! We have a number of fan favorites back on our shelves, including the best selling Velos V Paperclips - Gold and Mitsubishi Boxy 100 Pen. You can see everything back in stock below.
The latest CDT order has arrived from Tokyo bringing with it four new stellar products. The CDT Wooden Tape Dispenser is sure to impress, and with it we’re including a roll of CDT Sanada Tape (also available separately), which looks excellent over craft paper. We’re also adding the CDT Business Card Case, coming in the same lovely cinnamon leather as the CDT Leather Pen Case. Finally, to coincide with national writing month, we’re releasing the CDT Jabara Accordion Letter Set, a uniquely Japanese product.
We’ve also brought back the much-loved CDT Graffiti Pad. We previously stopped carrying it after CDT discontinued it, although later we found out they still had a decent supply in dark green. The product will eventually become permanently unavailable, but we’ll be stocking it as long as we can. We’ve also topped up our CDT notebooks and pencils.
The latest big box has arrived from Japan! We restocked, topped-up, and received a few new products. We're excited to be adding the Mitsubishi 460 and Mitsubishi 550, two retro, budget-friendly ballpoint pens. To go alongside the Olfa Limited Craft Knife, we added the Olfa Limited Art Knife. It's a precision art knife, made of premium materials, and offering the same minimal color-ways that the Olfa Limited series is known for. Finally, we have added white versions of the Midori Brass Pen and Midori Brass Pencil. Get yours today.
We just recevied an express delivery from Tokyo from our friends at Craft Design Technology. We have topped-up a few products and restocked a few of our most popular ones that recently sold out. We also received some samples of brand new products that have not seen much love stateside. Perhaps they'll join our lineup in 2017!

The boat from Japan has arrived, bringing us both new products and a resupply of products that were running low or sold out. We are adding two new products from Craft Design Technology, the CDT A5 Notepad and the CDT Brush Pen (plus refill), which happens to be our first brush pen. We have added the very iconic Mitsubishi No. 772 Red-Blue Pencils, the Dog Ear Notebook by Hum, and the Legno Pen and Acro Drive Pen from Pilot. Finally, we are adding the Nähe General Purpose Case. Nähe is yet another great brand by Hightide (creators of the Penco, PH, and Hum brands). The Nähe line is mostly storage and organizational products drawing inspiration from German stationers. We specifically chose this Nähe case to accommodate full-sized colored pencils, like our Mitsubishi No. 850s that are too long for many other pen and pencil cases. It'll hold about a dozen pencils, so a whole box of Mitsubishi No. 101s, or a nice array of individual pens, pencils, or erasers.

To all our loyal fans who have waited patiently on out of stock items: nearly everything has been topped up! We just received our long-awaited, first product shipment from Japan. Sufficed to say, moving a made-in-Japan shop to a country other than Japan adds quite a few challenges. We hope we can stay on top of things in the future, and we sincerely thank you for waiting. Please check below to see everything that is no longer sold out, and check back soon for some new products.
