The Java reed is one of the most remarkable calligraphy tools used in Arabic and Islamic calligraphy.
Made from a type of Javanese thorngrass, the pen is renowned for its hardness and ability to retain a sharp edge.
In fact, the great calligrapher Hasan Riza (1849-1920) was able to write an entire Qur'an, from beginning to end, with a single cut of his Java reed. Both the Mushaf and the pen he wrote it with are currently on display at the Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum in Istanbul.
