Brand: Mitsubishi Pencil Co.
Made in: Japan
Kohitsu is the art of Japanese penmanship, or calligraphy, using a hard point rather than a brush. The lead is thicker (as seen on the right) than the standard 6B model.
Founded in 1887 and formerly known as Masaki Yomato, Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd. is best-known today for its “uni” brand of quality writing instruments sold worldwide. Curiously, this Tokyo-based business is unrelated to Mitsubishi Motors and other brands within the Mitsubishi Group. Same name, same logo, completely different company.
