I've been using these...
, August 18, 2010
I've been using these maru/round/mapping nibs for about 2 years and they've been
very good to me. They seem to break in a little more slowly than the Nikko
brand. These nibs are the most difficult to use. It's their nature to catch the
paper and tear it if you're not careful. Keep a light hand and practice, and
you'll be able to make the thinnest lines!

Amazing nib!..At first...
, November 12, 2011
Amazing nib!..At first l had big problems because,to my big disappointment,the
ink didn't flow continuously and it's my worst nightmare when drawing a line and
the ink stops at the middle!..Then l decided to try by putting the nib end under
the fire for a few seconds to put off the protective coating.l rarely follow
this otherwise advisable procedure since the nib usually becomes a bit scratchy
and the line a lit bit broader and a bit less fine.But it worked very nicely
with the Tachikawa nib to produce an awesomely fine line with the ink flowing
continuously without any problem and that's great.So all l can say from my
experience is this nib is simply fantastic,better than my always beloved Hunt
102 nib which l have used for many years.lt just makes a very nice contact with
the paper and the lines can be really thin like a hair.My new love,l guess.

Tachikawa is a great brand when your using Mapping or Maru pens!
The ink flow messes up at first, but put it under a flame a few secs and it
Great for very detailed areas in a piece specially for Manga.

These nibs are superior in every way. They're very firm and flexible and (unlike
the Hunt crowquill nibs) handle very smoothly. These are even suitable for
toothier paper where other nibs would skip and stutter.
