This very fine inkstick is handmade by the Old Hu Kai Wen ink craftsmen in 1970s. It is very beautifully crafted. The method used to make this ink is called ´1000 beats´which literally means the raw materials to make this ink was beat repeatedly for thousands of times. This method is used specially to make the finest materials so that when writing, the ink is more delicate and smooth. The making method is marked clearly on the side of this inkstick and it is stamped by Old Hu Kai Wen workshop.
For professional handmade inksticks, the longer the ink is preserved, the better the quality becomes. This ink has been preserved at Old Hu Kai Wen´s special ink box for 40 years till recently inkston acquired it. Compared to new inksticks, the old inksticks has lower density and the surface shows a natural grey colour. However, this ink is so nice that it does not have bad cracks, which is not usual for handmade natural inksticks.
This is perfect ink for both ink collectors and professional artists. The longer you keep it, the more valuable it will become.

    A superb stick of the highest quality ink. The scent of the herbs and oils is fabulous as you grind it and it is a delight to work with it.

    what a treat! the ink is so worth the few extra dollars. beautiful in every respect. came well protected in packaging, too.

  • This is the first ink stick I have purchased. I have previously used bottle inks. The stick grinds very smoothly and produces a lovely rich ink. On double Xuan paper it produces a nice neutral Matt black colour, and diluted produces subtle, nuanced tones. Smells great too!!

    Très belle encre
    Je l’ai achetée car je voulais tester l’encre en suie d’huile de lin. Le bâton n’est pas encore très entamé mais disons que l’encre est fin et dense.

    Color Ink Sticks Extraordinaire!
    I own this set of color ink sticks from Inkston. I enjoy using these sticks very much. Grinding the color sticks is a meditation for me getting my mind ready to paint. I enjoy this Asian painting tradition. The color you get from these ink sticks is beautiful and strong. Well worth the time of grinding. Inkston is a wonderful company as well. Their products are top quality and they answer any question. I can give them and this product my highest recommendation. You will need an ink stone for grinding your ink as well. I have attached a photo of one of my ink grinding stones.

  • Old Hu Kai Wen Natural Mineral Colours.
    I like the colour inksticks very much, they catch the eye, are easy to grind and have rich bright colours with a sophisticated natural look.
    You can see immediately that they are high pigmented.
    The colours also blend together beautifully!

    Pongo 5 estrellas pero el producto merece muchas más.
    Las doce barras de colores minerales, son de una calidad extraordinaria. La presentación de lujo. Con esa base de madera realizada a la medida. Insuperable.
    En estos momentos he podido probar cuatro de las barras. El resultado está a la altura de las mejores acuarelas europeas. Los colores son algo menos vivos, pero su calidez y espíritu añejo los convierte en únicos. Voy a preparar tinta y a mezclar la entre sí ( diferentes barras de color) , intuyo que los tonos resultantes pueden ser ILIMITADOS.
    El embalaje y la entrega perfectos.
    Muchas gracias.
    Este tipo de productos son EMOCIONANTES.
    UN AUTÉNTICO TESORO. !

    I love this one: This ink is “bites” into the paper. It’s supper sufficient and performs a thick and beautiful black ink. Gives a different feeling, and ink to paint with – amazing.

    Super Qualität

    Duftet angenehm nach Erde. Die Tusche wird schön flüssig ohne zu klumpen. Der Stein ist ausserdem sehr ergiebig. 5 Sterne wie gewohnt

  • Rated 5 out of 5

    I have tried the colors on a Red Star double sheet of Xian paper and found that the reds and blues are augmented with a soluble color that bleeds from the basic stroke. the greens only slightly adulterated while the gold yellow is greatly soluble. The chocolate brown. possibly made with a red, bleeds a red color also.
    The colors are good but one must allow for the migrating color.

    added later,

    I must apologize for leading you into believing that the Hu inks bleed!!
    It was a mistake in using the Red Star Double paper, which has a open
    ‘weave’ that allows very small particles of pigment to diffuse away from a
    stroke. When I used two machine made and pressed papers the amount of
    diffusion was less on one and not at all on the other. Both of the last
    papers have a more ‘closed’ but absorbent nature and would have shown
    bleeding if it were there.
    I apologize to both you and the ink makers at Hu Kaiwen again for my
    error.

    Sutil aroma. Alta calidad. Buena gradación de tonos grises. Negro fuerte e intenso. Buen sonido al golpearlo con el dedo. Bonito relieve en negro.
