There is a saying that once you have mastered a good dip pen, that's when you have truly mastered the art of drawing. The experience of dipping a pen in ink and drawing with it is just something that can't be reproduced. Zebra has a fine line of famous nibs that are made for comic and manga drawing. The different nib sizes will give a different size line and flow to suit your drawing style. These pens are to be used with wooden body holders available from Zebra and are perfect for artists and calligraphers alike.

I had been using Nikko brand Tama nibs and after trying the Zebra, I just can't go back! These types of nibs are great for background work and lots of repetitive details because of the stiffness. The Nikko brand nibs tore the paper and wore out quickly. The Zebra nibs almost feel like ballpoint pen on paper! Excellent stuff!

These are good nibs if you know what you want to use them for and also how to prepare them for work.

I'd like to reply to the other user's review and say that, like all good quality nibs, you have to get rid of the coating they are packaged with (to prevent rust) before using or else the ink will slide right off. I recommend soap and water because using a lighter could be risky after more than a few seconds.

If you've never used dip pens don't start here. This nib is a liner and is very hard and not as flexible as you may want (at least at first). But when you get the hang of this nib, you can do amazing things. I like to illustrate with the flexible nibs and then use this controlled nib for fine lines and cross hatch shading. Consider heavy weight paper when using or training yourself with this nib.

I feel bad wasting money on these. They catch paper. They are so chromey and smooth that the ink slides right off and blots your paper (I tried Kaimei drawing and lettering ink and a few others). And when they do write they skip and can't draw a consistent line. BOO HOO.
