I use this for inking...
Verified Purchase
I use this for inking my drawings instead of calligraphy. It's my favourite nib! It's got a lot of flex, so line variation is super easy to achieve.

Also, not sure if this is relevant, but I'm a lefty and this nib works wonderfully for me :) (I've noticed some nibs behave oddly in my hand)

I very much prefer this...
Verified Purchase
I very much prefer this nib to the more popular G nib (which i find better for drawing than writing but that's for another review). I use this nib for my daily journal entries and it is such a joy to write with! This may be a calligraphy nib but is by no means hard to use for a beginner. There is excellent control and line variation. I write a with a cursive hand that is on the smaller side.

If any of you are wondering of the differences between this nib and its smaller cousin the "Arrow", the Blue Pumpkin is considerably larger and holds much more ink. I can comfortably write a few lines with the Pumpkin. The Arrow lasts me a sentence or two and is slightly more temperamental to use imo - a matter of personal preference really.

If ya gotta dip,.....dip...
If ya gotta dip,.....dip with this! The Blue Pumpkin has a lot of flex, a variable width line is a breeze. It does like the ink though, "adippin" you will do!

This nib is a winner!...
Verified Purchase
This nib is a winner! It holds a fairly large amount of ink for its size, though if you're flexing the nib, the ink gets eaten up fairly quickly. Which is only to be expected. :) I would say that the line it puts down when not flexed is extra-fine, but I suppose that all depends on perspective. It's also a very smooth writer, and has great control. This is my current favorite nib for writing (when I'm not using a fountain pen, of course)!

When i first got this...
Verified Purchase
When i first got this pen nib i was dissapointed of the point width, but when i tested it, my opinion changed completely, it is really good, allows to change line width or do stable lines, holds a good amount of ink and also has a cool looks, it is my second favourite pen nib, next to the G pen.
