As the description above says, this nib is stiff, so it's excellent for writing, or for drawing where only one line width is needed. And it holds quite a bit of ink, though some will get stuck in the "pocket" formed by the curled finger area on the underside, and won't slide back down along the tines. So dipping too deeply will waste a bit of ink. The index finger portion holds quite a bit of ink on its own, though, so you can write for a bit without having to dip.

Plus, it just looks cool.

Exactly what I thought it would be.A pen with a good reservoir, and a nice wet line. Not exactly what I'd call a calligraphic pen, as it's not super flex nor is it a flat...

Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I purchased this nib more out of curiosity than anything else, but I am glad that I did. I wasn't sure what to expect, and did not have high hopes for this nib, but I am happy to say that I was wrong to doubt the good folks at Brause. This is an excellent writing nib, with a very smooth point, and a good ink capacity. I would not use this for pointed pen calligraphy as the line variation is minimal, but for general writing, this is now the nib to beat. I was truly shocked by how smoothly this pen writes and with how thin the lines are. Generally speaking smooth pens tend to put out wider lines, but this one has excellent thin lines with a buttery smooth flow. If you are interested in using steel pens for everyday writing/drafting, or you want some nice consistent lines, then stock up on the Brause #29 "index nib"

It's an excellent nib with a unique look and a really nice feel when writing. It's not terribly flexible, so it's great for the things like monoline and such, whatever their names are.
I'm less of a calligrapher and more of someone who just uses pens that have nibs and get dipped, so for me at least this is an excellent nib for everyday use in writing.

Writes pretty well and, as another reviewer commented, it just looks cool.
