Nikko G Nob
Posted By: Robert Harrison
Comments:
As a beginner with fine point, I declare this nib as a phenom--and nothing short of it. It is an immensely smooth nib in any direction--especially those upward strokes. Also, it has a wide tine spread. I shall be purchasing more.

Great nib.
Posted By: Samuel Walter
Comments:
This nib works perfectly for fast informal writing as it almost never catches on the paper. It also has a nice amount of flex. However, it does not work nearly as well for formal writing.

Best for Drawing, Texture, Delicate
Posted By: Zach Kramer
Comments:
I like this nib because it is capable of creating extremely thin lines. Compared to the Zebra G it produces much thinner hairlines. Excellent for drawing fur and hair textures. For writing, I don't feel that the thinness of the Nikko G is necessary, the Zebra G will produce a more uniform line at it's thinnest. The Nikko G gets so thin that I can sketch very lightly before laying down my final lines, and if I do a water wash over the original sketch lines, they just dissolve completely (using water soluble ink). I ordered 3 different G nibs and the Nikko G was the only one that worked right away without needing broken in or cleaned.

My first Nib

Comments:
I'm so glad I had listened to others stating that the Nikko G is great for beginners. I find it writes unbelievable thin lines and just enjoy practicing with it.
