Pen body only, different nib styles are available separately. This holder is compatible with both regular and round nibs. The holder features special double rubber rings at the tip, the inner ring can take smaller round nibs and the larger ring can take regular nibs. The rubber grabs the nibs tightly, preventing shifting when drawing.
Finally, you can get all of your comic nibs in one place! JetPens is proud to bring the Tachikawa comic nib and pen line to our customers. Comic nibs are famous for producing strong and crisp lines that are difficult to duplicate with pens and brushes. They are great for creating detail in drawings. Varying nib sizes are available to suit your drawing needs. Each nib should be used with a wooden body holder.

Much better than the cheap Speedball pen nib holder I used to have. It is a
pleasure to draw with this, coupled with a G nib. I find the shape and size
quite ergonomic, maybe that is why I enjoy holding it. The nibs fit in much
better too. But my once gripe is that since the rubber thing is white, it gets
dirty so fast, especially when working with black ink. I suppose, more
maintenance and cleaning required.
I use one of these from time to time when I use my nibs and I enjoy it a fair
bit. The rubber can be cleaned pretty easily with a tooth brush and it's got
enough cushion to it so my fingers don't hurt.
I tried it with some of my other nibs and they didn't seem to stay in place with
this holder, kept falling out. But I haven't tried it with any speedball nibs
Just got this pen holder in the mail yesterday! So far its been perfect except
for the problem that the white grip gets very dirty. Other than that, its very
comfortable, in both the width of the holder, and the cushion!
