I too could only use this nib while it was upside down, which produced an extremely fine line.

The surface tension of the ink kept it from running all the way down the tines, no matter how I loaded it on there. And even the lightest touch did not produce a line when held right-side-up.

It's a real shame, as I've been looking for flexible nibs for more artistic calligraphy. It gets three stars, as I was able to use it like the other reviewer, getting such fine lines upside-down. Otherwise, I'd give this negative stars, if I could. Even if it's beautiful to look at, a pen nib should be functional.

As it says this nib is extremely delicate to pressure, unfortunately due to my heavy handedness I could never get this nib to write normally however I did find that turning it upside down produces an extremely fine line equal to that of a .25 HighTech-C, this nib surprisingly functions much more effectively as a replacement to my Maru nib which as you would expect scratches up the page and are typically more expensive. Because it also uses such little ink to produce these fine line you can just keep writing or drawing for what feels like forever.

Although not for its original purpose this nib has quickly found its place in my tool bag for sure.
