I absolutely love this nib and use it daily to address envelopes and do lettering. It's very flexible, so if you have a heavy hand it might not be the nib for you.... it's like night and day between this one and the Nikko G nib. That one is so stiff.

I’ve been trying different nibs for drawing purposes and this one dose a nice job. It’s got a good range of line widths and can do a pretty fine line for such a flexible nib. I mostly use Zebra G nibs and this one feels a bit more flexible so the line quality may be a bit tough to keep consistent at first vs. a more rigid nib but it works really well if you get used to it.

An agile little nib that puts down a great range of expressive linework and fine detail, surprisingly ink-conservative (even with wide lines). It's tiny, and easily fits in a small inkwell or bottle cap for refills.
It also fits the same handle (Tachikawa T-25) as the Zebra G and Brause "Blue Pumpkin". A great complement for both or either too, as an in-between to the Zebra's extra-fine abilities and the Pumpkin's more consistent, broad lines.

Very friendly dip nib for a first-time user. Started without a hitch in Higgins india ink, amazing flex for line width variability. I am super happy with this nib, and eyeing the blue pumpkin steno with my next purchase!

It's a bit smaller than you might expect but it has a lot of flexibility and line variation. Fit's nicely in most pen holders and is one of my favorites to use for calligraphy. Worth the price for sure!

This is my 3rd fave nib. I'd say "extra fine" is a bit of a stretch, the line is certainly thicker than Nikko G and Gillott 303.

Positive:
• As specified, it has a very fine point. It creates beautiful thin hairlines.
• It is flexible, which allows me to make nice thick downstrokes in pleasant contrast with the thin upstrokes.

Negative:
• There is some difficulty getting it to start. I often need to resort to this trick: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rVo3jTBfhk. This video is quite long, but you'll only need to watch the first few minutes to understand it.
• I was fully aware of this when purchasing, but this may be an issue for those who have not used this nib before: it is very small, and therefore needs to be dipped often. Another size related issue is that it does not work well with thicker inks.

This tiny, tiny nib is a powerhouse! It really does hold quite a bit of ink, likely because the lines it puts down when not flexed are so thin. Just writing, I felt like I was writing for quite a long time between dippings. It has a fairly good amount of flex for line variation, but I found my nib to be a bit scratchy. I'm sure it will smooth out in time, but I've been favoring the Blue Pumpkin nib over this one.

Still, I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

I absolutely love this nib! It was so smooth, it was like writing with butter! And it has great versitility in the line width. It also held a lot more ink than i thought it would. I'm definitely going to use this nib a lot!

Okay. . . it was fairly hard to use just because it kept getting caught in the paper and needed to keep dipping constantly. it writes beautifully once you have mastered- but does take a while to get accustomed to smallness and delicacy of which it needs. :)
