Verified Purchase
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!

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.

Verified Purchase
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.

What an awesome pen, feels great in the hand and was so affordable I would gift one to any of my friends who wanted to use a dip pen.

I find the nib holder...
Verified Purchase
I find the nib holder to be very comfortable to hold and I love the natural mahogany wood. However, the nib it came with is stuck and I can't exchange it for a new nib. I have used the nib and find it acceptable for writing, but I would have rather been able to put in the antique nibs I've been collecting. I am going to have to find another nib for this use.
