I've been looking for a nib to replace the Hunt 102 crowquill, which has degraded in quality to the point of uselessness. The Tachikawa T-77 is not only a good replacement, it's a step up. I use a flexible nib (Hunt 108) for my "big" lines, but the T-77 is perfect for finer lines, especially because it has a VERY controlled bounce. Very strong nib, very impressed, and it's increased my enjoyment of inking tenfold.

At first I was skeptical of purchasing this pen; can a nib that is clearly not brass really be as soft as the former?

Previously I only had in my possession the chrome T-99, and tortured memories of the brass Tank Master nib, from before the price shot up. The T-99 is a very stiff nib and so provides extremely controlled but sadly relatively little variation. To get any sort of organic flow, one has to put a lot of pressure on the nib which not only damages it, but also the paper you are using it on.

This nib, however, I am happy to report has just as much flex as any of its brass siblings. It is capable of minute lines roughly equivalent to the .005 size liner pen, and also brush size strokes with minimal effort. The flex is similar to a G pen and totally equal to the brass nib included in the Deleter Manga Starter Pack.

This nib is definitely a cheap alternative to the crazy expensive Tank Master nib.

ok product. because its soft it can make some uncontrolled lines unless you are just skimming the page. but it still makes the thin lines you need, plus 2 for a total of 4 nibs is cheaper and better than the thank master version.

This nib reminds me a lot of a lightly finer version of the Hunt 102, but less hit-and-miss. I've never had an issue with Tachikawa nibs, and they are reason one of my go-to manufactures (I use all Tachikawa nibs, except for the occasional Zebra G/Deleter Maru combination I use every once in a while when I'm in the mood). So, since I always end up with a decent number of bad 102 nibs out of a box, I may switch to these instead. There as close to a 102 as I'm going to get with Tachikawa quality.

Fine lines are easy (finer lines than a 102), doesn't pick up paper fiber quite as easy as a 102, but doesn't create as bold lines as a 102 either. It doesn't quite have the recognizable 102 taper that I'm so fond of, but it comes very close.

All in all, when I don't feel like switching pens back and forth, I will often just use this nib only as it does offer that much of a variation. It's also extremely controllable. I love it.

I like using this nib in conjunction with the 99 model, offers more line variance while the other is great for very fine lines.
