3R Writing Brush / Writing Brush

3R Writing Brush

Writing brush, treasure of Chinese culture, is widely used in calligraphy and Chinese painting. However, it has hardly changed among thousands of years. The brush nib is consumable, and will be forked or hair-removal after long-time using, resulting in writing defects. Then the brush have to be discarded, while the penholder still can be used. "3R Writing Brush" has a removable nib, which is joint with penholder by tenon structure combining magnet, making it easy to change the nib and secure to write. This design follows the 3R principle (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), and advocates the environment friendly concept.
