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.

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.

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.

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

Super fine lines to the max! And they offer a wide range of line widths as well, but in a very controlled fashion. A bit pricey, but these are a lot better than my Hunt ones, so I'll gladly take them at (almost) any price!

I love these so much!!!!
I can get very very fine lines, and very thick lines all while having perfect control! They also seem very sturdy, I tend to scratch the paper a lot, and unlike some other nibs i ave, none have broken!

I have the tank master, the soft pack and the regular maru nibs. These are bigger but they are more flexible for sure then the other maru type. Both can create nice thin lines, it's just the other one requires more pressure to get the ink flowing. The tank master looks exactly like the other version except it has a small reservoir.

Nibs that I got were chrome but the ones listed are copper, I don't know, label on the nibs package seemed to be correct but they were just larger versions of the hard nib, really not that flexible at all.
Problem with chrome crow quill nibs is that they don't flex like a 102 and will just pierce the paper, really don't like these nibs.
