Nice, not light and hollow, and the weight is directed towards the tip so that the maru nib can fit in and drawing pressure is smoother. Overall, the best round pen nib holder out there.
The thinner it is, the easier it is to draw details.

The only problem is that the maru nib is easy to put on, but difficult to pull off.

Good holder. Holds the nib REALLY well, so well that its so difficult to remove( which is a good thing). But in my opinion, its a little shorter than expected( not to mention its diameter is smaller than that of a regular pencil). It just needs some getting used to only then can you experience it magic.

Flipping buy this. Even if you don't use dip pins but need to spend a little more to hit that free shipping, just buy this, I love it, I love holding it, I haven't even used it, but just by the feel of it I know it's epic, It has a nice weight to it unlike EVERY other one I've ever put in my hands. it's neat, and can't be beat by those cheeply made ones you find in art stores.

Very nice, it was thin, but it was to be expected. The color is beautiful, I can't really say much since this was my first nib holder, but I can say that I was overall in love with it. Though at first it is easy to put the nib on, and difficult to take off, I found that spitting on the nib works(yeah....thats what someone said..so I'm guessing I'm not the only one.)
