These nibs are very smooth on a variety of papers, even on heavily textured watercolor paper. Pretty amazing..can't really do that with any other G nib Ive used. I don't prep these nibs like others have said. They may have a coating for rust protection but with the inks I have used so far...Dr Martins Black Star Matte and Black Magic and W&N waterproof Indian Ink..fairly dense inks, the ink sticks to the nib pretty well.

I had never used a nib pen before so this was my first experience. It was instantly easy to use! There was no learning curve. Right out of the pack I loved drawing with it and was amazed at how fine the lines could be. I have tried other nibs since and none match up to this one. It is awesome.

This nib is one of my absolute favorites-- it's incredibly responsive, lays down a beautiful line, and is so versatile-- thin or thick, it can do it all. As the nib wears out it gets harder to do the super-thin feathering lines, but its flexibility and the control it gives you over laying down varied line widths are amazing. Great for learning nib inking, and great for being a pro at it.

The Zebra G is likely the best G nib being made today. Like the other G pens, the Zebra offers a wide range of line variability from fine to super thick. But it is capable of an even finer line than the other brands I have tried. It's also smoother writing than the others, and can be used in any direction - pushed, pulled, or side to side without catching.

Interestingly, the tines are ground for flexibility instead of stamped. This is an "old fashioned" method of adding flex to a nib, but it works better than stamping rows of grooves into the tines like Nikko, Tachikawa and Leonardt do on their G nibs.

I tested the three types of G-pen: Tachikawa, Nikko and this one, Zebra. I just can say that the Zebra G-pen nib is the very best I have tried in my entire life. Tachikawa and Nikko G-pens get easily damaged and their inking doesn't take very long to get thicker, but the Zebra pen is still as thin or thick as I want it to be, and I can treat it more roughly than the other two. If you are attempting to draw manga or comic, I can warranty that the Zebra G-pen has good reasons to be most manga artists' favorite nib pen. From a line as thin as one made by a Round-pen to one almost as thick as one made by any permanent fine marker, the Zebra G-pen is a must try for any artist, not only those who draw manga or comic.

I haven't used these nearly enough but drawing with them was an eye-opening experience. When I get back to the drawing board, I will be speedily wearing this out.

Superb. One of my favorite nibs, the G Model of course is great for illustration, I love writing fancy pants letters to people with this and have done much work with these formidable nibs.

Use sumi ink or india ink, the ink from US manufacturers is a bit thicker and gets chunky with age and gives me more troubles than I care to remember.
