I had read that these were highly recommended nibs for inking comic art. Linked by Amazon to Jet Pens 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.
