Description
Pack of 5 round nibs only. Nib body available separately. The Tank Master nibs are special because they feature a little flap on the underside of the nib to hold extra ink, thus allowing longer line length.

Finally, you can get all of your comic nibs in one place! JetPens is proud to bring the Tachikawa comic nib and pen line to our customers. Comic nibs are famous for producing strong and crisp lines that are difficult to duplicate with pens and brushes. They are great for creating detail in drawings. Varying nib sizes are available to suit your drawing needs. Each nib should be used with a wooden body holder.

Below is a video of our JetPens test, showing how much ink this nib can actually hold:

  The Tank Master nibs..., February 6, 2011
By kerrymitchell - See all my reviews
The Tank Master nibs are a very nice alternative to standard crow quill nibs. They're excellent for detail drawing on bristol, and they hold lots of ink. They fit the model 36/40 Tachikawa pen holders, which is a plus, as these are much more comfortable to work with than the little plastic pen holders from Hunt.

I have changed my opinion to rate it a bit higher,....as I have used these more, I have really begun to respect them and appreciate how much ink they really do hold in comparison to a standard dip pen. If the folks at Tachikawa can use the same reservoir on an equally flexible but less scratchy nib,....I would buy their entire inventory!!!!
C'mon Tachikawa,....you're so close to the perfection on this!!!

NOTE: The nibs are indeed flexy, but still a bit scratchy for my taste. The ink capacity is fantastic with the right ink!!!

I only use dip pens for writing because I'm fickle about ink color. The tank master nibs hold a surprising amount of ink. (I was able to fill out a page from my exacompta lined journal with it.) My only complaint is how scratchy the nib is. Before cleaning it, I noticed it had paper fibers stuck in it. Still, it's great to be able to write for so long continuously.

  This nib is not what..., July 22, 2010
By togotooner - See all my reviews
This nib is not what I had hoped for. It held a fair amount of ink,....but not nearly as much as I was lead to believe. The biggest disappointment was the scratchiness of the point.
It was painful to use on anything other than specially coated board.

The point was way to fine and didn't have much flex due to the reservoir being so close to the tips.
