I had read that these were highly recommended nibs for inking comic art. I was
very pleased with the service. However, I ended up tossing the box of nibs
after many hours spent diligently trying a number of samples. Yes, I cleaned
the coating off first. I could not get predictable results and flow after hours
of work. I'm not a master of dip pens but can do acceptable work with crow
quill, calligraphy, and Speedball nibs. I would give even a lower rating than
three-star except for the recognition that it could be my technique. Also, the
holders were too loose and short for my taste. When I would clean the pen, the
nib would come out too easily. If you try these, I wish you the best of luck
but just wanted to post a review that spectacular results are not universally
guaranteed, as one might gather from other reviews and comments on the Internet.
By the way, I have a degree in Art and was a student of a well known comic
artist so dexterity is not usually an issue.
