Though it can hold multiple types of nibs, I prefer using it for precision round/maru pens and in contrast prefer to use the Tachikawa-40 for the larger widths of the G and Tama. It's very light and small in my preference but it get the work done well without having my palm cramp like when I use regular pens/pencils. Emphasizing on the weight, I wouldn't suggest it to people who prefer their writing utensils to have a little mass to it; this one is extremely light.

Tachikawa's line on holders are amazing for their idea of being able to hold variable pen sizes all around. Most likely the choice is all in preference, since their holders are high quality.

*if only they made a double-sided manga pen holder* wink-wink

This version the Model 25 works great for delicate lines thinner lines with more control the the T-40 because it's thinner but it all depends what type of nib you use also.
I use the T-40 for thicker Key lines and the Model 25 for crosshatching.

Love these Tachikawa nib holders. This one is great for crow quill sized nibs..maru, mapping, etc...perfect size.
For larger nibs..G pen, get the other larger Tachikawa with the grips.
I have at least 6 Tachikawa holders. The plastic bit that holds the nibs has been very reliable so far. I suppose after a while they will wear down but they won't create rust.
Still use some Generals and Kohinoors with the cork grips...has the metal bit to hold the nibs..still like those but for small crow quill size nibs these are better suited.

please restock, this holder is great for maru nibs and is light so that the hand doesn't cramp when you're working on those small details.

This pen holder is great! Please restock - I'm running low on ink, and I want to buy a few more sets of nibs, but I'm waiting on these. I need one or two more so I don't have to keep on switching inky nibs out of the one holder I have currently, hahah.

Plain and simple, tried and true nib holder. It has the Tachikawa gripper that holds both G/Tama/School nibs, as well as maru nibs. No grip, but one isn't always needed. Nice classic wooden finish (which I prefer). Classic shape and balance. You can't go wrong. 5 stars, all day, everyday.

• It works. Considering the price, I didn't expect anything revolutionary out of this. It does its job, and that's what counts.
• The color of the wood is rather nice.

• Sometimes there's a tiny bit of give. By that I mean if you don't stick nearly the entire shank of the nib in, the nib changes angle a little as you move. It's almost nonexistent though, unless you barely stuck in the nib.

This nib has a nice diameter and is pretty comfortable to hold. My only issue with it is that it's rather short, but it doesn't really bother me all that much. Be careful putting maru nibs in it because it holds them very tightly. I use a slightly damp napkin to pull the nib out because my fingers just slip when I try to pull the maru nib out.
