USE AND CARE
In the event of any dirt or smudges, gently wipe the surface using a soft sponge or cloth. When opting for a cleaning agent, ensure it is a neutral detergent; abstain from using alkaline detergents, as they can compromise the surface integrity. To prevent any potential damage, avoid the use of abrasive sponges or metal scrubbers.
HISTORY OF DRILLOG
Nestled within the Daikanyama Tsutaya (Tokyo) is the renowned stationery floor, celebrated not just for its vast collection, but also for its expert concierge adept in the world of writing instruments. This knowledgeable guide assists in the quest to find the perfect writing companion.
Amidst this literary haven stands the signature concierge, Kazuko Sakuma, an embodiment of Tsutaya's ethos. Beyond her advisory role, Ms. Sakuma holds a significant connection to our journey, being the pioneer purchaser of our inaugural brand, NEIGHBOR & CRAFTSMAN. Engaging conversations with her have often sown seeds of inspiration that ripple across our product lines.
It was a casual comment from Mr. Sakuma that catalyzed the birth of DRILLOG's metal dip pen. "Can we make a metal dip pen?" he pondered. With this question, a quest for innovation was ignited.
Spanning three years, the journey from the first prototype to the realization of the DRILLOG pen nib was marked by dedication, exploration, and meticulous research.
While our products have been a cherished secret of Japan until now, this endeavor heralds a new era. Our aspiration is to share our creations, infused with our technology and sentiments, with the world, mirroring the cultural voyage that is the hallmark of Tsutaya's Book.
