The Tachikawa School...
The Tachikawa School nib is actually Quite Nice! It’s moderately stiff, and decently smooth over paper. It provides a satisfactory swell and, I personally just love the response and feel of this pen.
It feels a lot like my beloved Esterbrook Falcons, only a little scratchier - but it has one big downfall as far as I am concerned; It cannot handle side strokes well.
The nib itself is of excellent quality like all of the Japanese nibs I’ve tested so far. Fuller review on the "escape from suicide wolf forrest" blog.
