The nib holder it great, it has a nice balance and feel to it. The nib the came with it, was defective. The nib slit was not centered, making one of the tines tip extremely pointy like a needle, picking up paper. Jetpens sent me some replacements nibs, and out of the 6, 3 were defective like the one that came with the nib. It was very nice for Jetpens to send me a few replacement nibs, but the fault is at the manufacturer. I recommend buying the nib holder and using a different nib.

The nib holder is one with a great design and a nice feel. It's pretty nicely balanced, most nibs I've used (including the Brauss Arrow/Blue Pumpkin for those looking to buy those too) go in very smoothly and stay in place. The nib seems to have had cases in which it was defective but for me personally, it was fine and it's a nib that easily outperforms similar ones at my local art store. Definitely a holder worth buying.

I love this holder. The bevels on the mahogany make detailed writing easy. It has a nice, warm look and feel. Perfect for the holidays!

I had an initial scare when I first used this nib holder. I decided to try on a different nib and as I was pulling off the nib that was included the entire ferrule, the metal part that connects directly to the wood handle, came off. It was just held in place with a tiny bit of cheap glue. It really wasn't a huge issue, a good amount of super glue fixed it right up, but I don't like purchasing supplies that I have to repair on day one. The manufacturers need better quality control.

Aside from that, I'm still happy with my purchase. It's a beautiful nib holder and feels great in the hand. The nib that came with it was a pleasant surprise. It writes smoothly and leaves a nice thin line.

The nib comes to me in good status, on my staples filler paper it writes smoother than the G nibs bought at same time, the nibs work better with manga ink(thick), the holder looks so elegant and beautiful, both black and Mahogany, I like them so much that I bought two of them again with a box of the E+M nibs, wish I do not get defective ones like the other reviewers.

Very comfortable to use for long periods of time. My only real qualm is that the metal barrel came off after a few uses, like another reviewer mentioned. Fortunately, it was an easy fix with some superglue and letting it set overnight. If you like your nib holder feeling elegant, sturdy and comfortable, this is still worth checking out (just make sure you have some good superglue or epoxy on hand).

This is a good looking nib pen, but as dipping pens can be a little troublesome , I found this not holding a lot of ink. But I like it.

This is a nice nib holder. Certainly elegant looking. I always want to like the metal nib holder, and this is among the better ones I have used, but I don't like how the metal nibs go in so much.

Upon receiving the pen and attempting to remove the nib rammed into it, the spring holder slid out as well. Luckily, with a little wiggling the nib decided to separate and the holder was easily pushed back into place. The grip section has an odd feel being slick and very narrow metal, possibly the thinnest section pen I have used, however the larger swelling in the body feels good in the pen and gives it a not-unpleasant balance. Holding it at the swelled grip seems very imprecise for writing, however for large scale work with metal brushes it would likely be nice, especially for those who did not wish to just go buy a set of automatic pens. The holder also looks exceptionally nice with the wood and metal combining well. The only downside to the nib and holder bundle is the nib itself. The only comparisons I have for that visual style of nib are the Speedball 512 and 513, neither of which was as scratchy and unrefined feeling as that. It compared more to the 22 and 56 Speedball nibs I have in terms of unpleasantness to write with, although it does have the benefit over those two of being bigger. The holder alone is worth the price, however that nib is just terrible.
