Who we are?
I am Taizo Okagaki, as some of you might know I am the owner of Wancher brand and Engeika used to be my fountain pen shop since 1984.
In 2018, I decided to close down Engeika to focus on making Wancher fountain pens. Since then, Engeika has been on hold but I am really grateful that many of you still support us and hope that Engeika comes back someday.
There are a lot of great things from Japan that I would love to introduce to you not only fountain pens so I think maybe it's the time to bring back Engeika. However, most importantly, I don't want to lose contact with you who I have been talking with for years and to not be able to connect with new friends from all over the world by limiting myself to only fountain pens.
I have been researching and experiencing with many materials and techniques that can be used to create useful tools for everyday carry such as knives, wooden boxes or leather cases. Therefore, Engeika will be my small business providing you with some good Japanese EDC items which are of course made with careful craftsmanship and finest materials.
Engeika is now built again from the beginning but I am learning and researching every day to find and create the best tools possible. If you have any ideas that you would like to share, please don't hesitate to talk to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
