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 yet.

Nice grip, not bad looking, I like the part that actually hold the nib. I'm always afraid I'm going to break the center when I take out a maru nib, though. So far it's proven sturdy enough, and it's been 6 or 7 months.

Love this. It's really pretty and my ink washes off the white with a baby wipe, which I was worried about. But it washes up just fine.

I've held a lot of nib holders and pens over the years, and Tachikawa holders with the rubber grip are the most comfortable and easy-to-control of any I've ever drawn with. They CERTAINLY beat the Hunt models, both the large model and the small crowquill model, in design and ease of use.

It sits in the hand well, neither too large nor too small for most hands. The white grip allows for just a few more hours of comfortable control, which is crucial when you're drawing eight or nine hours a day. It's also just slightly heavier than the Speedball holders, which helps with the control as well.

The wood and grip color also aren't an eyesore, which is pretty cool. Highly recommended.
