Reed Pen

I noticed the question was asked previously but not answered: Does anyone know where to find a reed kulmus in Yerushalayim or how to make one?

  1. One does not buy a ready made redd kulmus. Those who write with a reed, buy sections of bamboo, cut them apart, and make the kulmus.Although the bamboo used for schach will work, it wears out quickly. There is a much better type of bamboo that is imported from Japan. You can find it near Machaneh Yehudah, in a store called "HaKulmous". (Sorry, I don't have the address). The proprietor's name is Chaim Ivgy.I know he teaches how to cut it, but do not know if he charges for this. A reed kulmus is great for Ktav Sefaradi, but does a poor job on Ashkenazi writing. B'hatzlachah!

    1. I was thinking of bamboo, and was wondering if it qualifies as a reed. Maybe the reeds chazal meant were ones which grow on the water and are moved by it - hence the use of the reed. It seems ot me that most if not all bamboo is grown not near water basins.

  2. If you speak Hebrew, you can contact Rav Giat and he can sell you some. Give me your email and I can give you his phone number. He only speaks Hebrew
