At first I was skeptical...
January 31, 2015
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
