Entering our 10th-year, Wancher Team is eager to continue our mission of offering traditional crafts with new creative values. Following the Tokiwa-iro, we are proud to present you: KALEIDO Fountain Pen - the next commemorative design of the Wancher 10th Anniversary collection.
KALEIDO fountain pen is born from the idea of a fountain pen that is affordable, stylish, yet can last for a lifetime. The model is greatly inspired by our tremendous appreciation towards years of encouragement and love from you - who share our love and interests in fountain pens.
The KALEIDO special design
The JAPAN Kaleido fountain pen possesses a different look from the familiar cylinder shape usually found in other Wancher models. The 12 straight edges represent our great inspiration in symbolic Japanese beauty such as the beautiful sun rays, cedar trees, or pillars in traditional infrastructure. With this distinctive 12-sided prism shape and an ultimately smooth finish, it inspires us with the name KALEIDO - which comes from the Greek word "Kal" - beautiful and "eidos"- shape.
To create the JAPAN Kaleido fountain pen, our craftsmen have hand-cutting high-quality hard resin and polish it multiple times. The finished product is a mesmerizing shape composed of straight lines and finely waved edges. As you hold the pen, take a moment to look at it closely and enjoy the glowing shine along the marbled surface of the 12 sides and the exquisite comfort it brings.

DESIGN WITH HIGH COMPATIBILITY
The key of Kaleido fountain pens lies in the grip design. Compatible with standard Jowo size #6 nib, the Kaleido fountain pen promises a pleasant writing experience for long sessions despite its oversized 12-prism barrel.
