Got the titanium Zebra G and Hunt 101. THRILLED! I don't want to write with anything else--I can write lines and lines without dipping. The Zebra G hairlines are incredible. I feel like these make writing easy.

I received this nib 2 days ago, but only began to try it out tonight. WOW!! Immediately it responded beautifully with shades and fine hairlines. No scratchiness, no dragging on the upstrokes, absolutely no blobbing! I've never had a nib that worked so perfectly out of the gate. I have tried the Brause Rose Cage, the EF Principal Cage and the Nikko G Cage, (and numerous regular pointed nibs) but had problems with most of them except for them except for the Rose Cage which eventually (with a bit of fine sandpaper) didn't catch on the upstrokes. If all nibs were as perfect as this Hunt 101 Cage, I would feel as if I were in Calligraphy Paradise!

I have the Blue Pumpkin Nib + Cage and the Leonardt Principal Nib + Cage. I was able to write out three sentences with the Moon Palace Sumi ink with both nibs and didn't have to re-dip once! I highly recommend shelling out the extra few bucks for a nib with an ink cage, especially if you tend to write/draw quite a bit with your pointed pen.

Lovely invention! Holds the ink in the nib for lines & lines! I'm not very clever w/ the Rose yet, but I sense it might be even more finicky w/o the cage to slow down the flow some - I've already managed to get it to blow out a blob, but it did so in a much more contained version than normally. Glad to have it.

Having purchased the HUNT 101 Nib with Ink Cage, I am happy to report complete satisfaction. Especially when executing long swooping flourishes or connecting script hand lettering, the cage gives one the advantage of a long line without having to refill. I have many nibs and love them all but the HUNT with Cage is just the most versatile for reliable, sensitive and extended calligraphy. I will certainly get more "caged" nibs when I order next... Worth the price for certain.

Best nib on the planet

I LOVE this nib! It makes working on a project much less stressful. Never blobs, always smooth. Ordering a few more to have on hand. Well worth the money.

Love these!

These work great--I wish they were offered in a wide variety of nibs.

Absolutely brilliant!

Though I love the regular Blue Pumpkin nib, I never use it because I can only write about one to two words with fountain pen ink ; the Brause EF66, with its small size, holds the ink so much better. I only just came across these nibs a week ago and had to try it out. With an ink cage, I was able to write a half a page with the Blue Pumpkin and fountain pen ink - would have been more except I got called away. I love this nib! The insert that comes with the nib warns that with normal ink, you should clean the nib out frequently and I expect that's true, but with fountain pen ink, it cleans out completely with just water.
