Amazing nib!..At first l had big problems because,to my big disappointment,the ink didn't flow continuously and it's my worst nightmare when drawing a line and the ink stops at the middle!..Then l decided to try by putting the nib end under the fire for a few seconds to put off the protective coating.l rarely follow this otherwise advisable procedure since the nib usually becomes a bit scratchy and the line a lit bit broader and a bit less fine.But it worked very nicely with the Tachikawa nib to produce an awesomely fine line with the ink flowing continuously without any problem and that's great.So all l can say from my experience is this nib is simply fantastic,better than my always beloved Hunt 102 nib which l have used for many years.lt just makes a very nice contact with the paper and the lines can be really thin like a hair.My new love,l guess.

This truly is a great drafting pencil with amazing design.l'm an illustrator and really have to use only the most comfortable products for my everyday job.The ergonomic shape of this pencil beautifully sits inside the hand.The weight is just great and the shape offers many frequent,subconscious changes of holding angles during drawing.The clip is removable for even bigger comfort.l could say this pencil makes a beautiful symbiosis with the hand to become as one.And that's what l'm always looking for.

Awesome pen,real Japanese style of broken brush line.l could not use it for some more rigid,fine,bold black comic-like drawing but for more expressive style it is just phenomenal!..l like the poetry of a hand movement it follows so beautifully,giving a hairy-thin line at the tip and that lovely,broken line when you freely increase the pressure from time to time.Feels like some sort of a Zen meditation,it really kinda dances in a hand.Best soft tipped brush pen l've used so far and l could hardly believe that it could be beaten out someday.
