Rotary Date Stamp


Due to popular demand, we sourced this iconic stamp with its pleasingly smooth and weighty brass handle. True to its old school origins, it requires a separate ink pad and manual rotation of the wheels to select the date. Dot, dash, / or a blank space can be placed between the day/month/year. Made in Indonesia.

To accompany, we also offer a small ink pad. Shachihata has been making high quality ink pads in Nagoya, Japan since 1925. This understated pad comes with oil-based black pigment ink, and the surface of the pad is designed to make full contact with a stamp. It produces a sharper and brighter result than a standard ink pad. Fast drying and waterproof. The casing snaps shut to maintain freshness.

Rotary Date Stamp Sizes: Small: 7.5 cm x 4 cm, Large: 8.5 cm x 4.5 cm 
Ink Pad Surface Dimensions: 2.5" x 1.5"

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.

We would be great together -
