The Mitsibushi Pencil Company is a Japanese company that was established in Tokyo in 1887. The company, founded by Niroku Masaki, began life producing wooden pencils and it wasn’t until the late 1950s that they began creating pens. It has since led the way in the stationary world with a range of innovative products that it makes under the brand names uni-ball and uni.
Their most widely recognised product is the POSCA marker, an extremely versatile marker pen suitable for just about any application. The POSCA markers use water-based pigment ink and can write on just about any surface including metal, plastic, fabric, wood, glass and canvas - making it very popular with artists. Also a hit with artists is the uni Pin fine drawing pen, an ultra-fine marker perfect for applications where precision is required. Uni-ball are world-renowned for their range of super smooth rollerball pens. The uni-ball Eye, Jetstream and Signo are three of our best-sellers and each is a pleasure to write with. Not forgetting their roots, uni-ball has also created the Kuru Toga, a revolutionary mechanical pencil with a revolving lead that keeps a sharp tip at all times.
