The quality of these nibs is quite fantastic. Very sturdy, very easy to clean, very little break in time, and they don't wear down easily. If you're more accustomed to the G-pen nibs these will feel a bit different. They're much stiffer and make cleaner lines in comparison to the G-pen. Extremely good for crosshatching, making speed lines, beta flash, background buildings that require precision, or just inking a character of some sort.

I tested them on a few types of paper and found that they're good for most thicker papers(90lb and up), and work especially well on watercolor paper without snagging on the fibers. On lighter paper, such as computer paper, they work, but having to use a heavy press to make thicker lines with these kinda scratches deeply into it making fear I'll end up cutting through. That was my experience with it at least.

I absolutely love these nibs! They hold a surprising amount of ink, so I don't find myself constantly needing to re-dip in the middle of inking a sketch. These have just the right amount of responsiveness I like to have while inking (some line width variation, not that thick even when I press heavily). I only use a handful of nibs for testing/experimenting purposes, but for me this was a must-have.

Excellent product.
Since I use various inks on different types of paper, this nib probably behaves quite different for me.
Experiment !!!

I'm still figuring these out. They aren't as easy for me to get the hang of as the Maru and G pen nibs, but I like them. Definitely needed to burn the tip before I used it.

Wonderful nibs for various writing - works well with different inks on very demanding papers and surfaces. Started to work right away (some instruments require break-in time) and lasts fine. Easy to clean, no oxidation.
Thank you, Tachikawa!

The quality of the nibs seem pretty good. It's my first time to use manga pens, it feels kind of scratchy compared with a fountain pen, but it's nice to try out.
