Founded in Tokyo in 2019, Anterique Stationers has set out to match the comfort and dignified design of the classic mid-century pen with the latest technological advances in ink and materials. Antique x Technique. Refillable. Made in Japan.
Ballpoint pens in the past used "sticky" ink, but Anterique's oil-based ballpoint pens use "ultra-low-viscosity ink" (Mach ball ink). Ultra-low-viscosity is ink that is "smooth" and easy-flowing like salad oil. When using "smooth" ink, an ordinary pen tip will have ink leakage, so it must be combined with an ultra-precisely processed pen tip. Anterique ballpoint pens use a pen tip with a built-in spring to precisely control the flow of ink for a very crisp, non-smudging, ultra-fine .5mm line. This is the secret to smooth writing! Made in Japan.
