Hand-crafted from ebonite hard rubber and equipped with 14k solid gold Bock nibs, the Eboya Houga is made available in the Large, Medium, and Small sizes and in four different colors: Kougetsu Yellow, Kumpuu Green, Shinkai Blue, and Tanshin Red.
Small in size but not in presence, the Eboya Houga Small Kougetsu Yellow fountain pen captures an intricate yellow and black ebonite motif on a smooth, slender model.
Each Eboya pen is crafted from hand-polished raw ebonite which has been sustainably harvested from the Asian rubber gum tree. Caps and barrels are hand-turned, and each step of the production process is artisanal - Eboya pens require a minimum of six months to be produced.
"Eboya - Made In Tokyo" is machine-engraved on the barrel. The clipless cigar shape of the Houga Small Kougetsu Yellow fountain pen allows for the perfect backdrop to showcase the nuanced finish. Marbled swirls of ebonite dance playfully with one another, like yellow moonlight against the dark night sky. Because each pen is handmade, no two will be exactly alike, and even patterns within the same pen may vary dramatically from section to section.
While the ebonite itself is strong and durable, sheltering this pen from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures will help preserve the polished surface and prevent premature aging. Eboya considers the gradual changes in color and tone that will result in time to be part of the natural seasoning process of this pen.
Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships. See our nib set-up and optimization page for more details.
