Introducing our Lidded Ink Stone with Water Trench: an exquisite piece crafted from natural stone, meticulously designed to enhance your ink grinding experience and prevent ink from drying out.


  • Crafted from high-quality natural stone, ensuring durability and longevity.
  • Raised central palette for grinding and mixing ink, allowing you to achieve the desired consistency.
  • Outer trench encircling the central palette to hold water, preventing the ink from drying out.
  • Suitable for use with bottled liquid ink or grinding ink, providing versatility for different preferences.

Usage Instructions:

  1. Pour liquid ink from the bottle onto the central palette. If desired, further grind the ink on the palette to achieve a thicker concentration.
  2. After use, fill the outer trench with clean water. This water reservoir acts as a barrier, maintaining the moisture of the remaining ink for up to 10-14 days.
  3. Place the lid on the inkstone to protect the ink from evaporation and external elements, ensuring its longevity and usability.
