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.

This nib holder fits well in my hand, considering how I hold pens (which is different than normal) and the nibs fit cozy inside the holder! I bought Maru (mapping) and G-Pen nibs and they fit excellently!

New to calligraphy. Great straight pen, works well with the Nikko G nib.
The white grip is easy to clean with a little soap and water.

This is by far the best nib holder I have come across. I tried the speedball pens and another brand befre this, but none match in quality. I prefer maru or mapping nibs that usually need a much smaller, and there for more uncomfortable to use, nib holder, but this gives me a huge advantage in comfort and control over my favorite nibs. Most of my speedball nibs fit the holder but I bought the G-Series and the Maru nib from Tachikawa and They are all I use now. I even forked over the extra bit to buy the 'tank master' maru nibs and they were well worth it. The grip of this pen is also very resiliant to staining from dirt and ink. Worth every penny!
