Zebra Titanium
Posted By: Alesia Zorn
I LOVE the Zebra G Titanium Nibs. Last summer I had a job addressing 400 Stardream Metallic Pewter Envelopes. I went through a regular Zebra G about every 30 envelopes. Today I addressed 100 of the same envelopes with one Titanium nib, so this nib is worth the money in saved time and resources.

Excellent upgrade
Posted By: Jon
Though there is some debate on the matter, I find the titanium Zebra G to be a significant upgrade from the chrome version. It seems to last about twice as long, but even more importantly it feels more precisely crafted than the original (though that one, too, is extremely well-made). My lettering is sharper and more regular with this pen than any other modern variety I have tried.

Excellent for lefty beginners
Posted By: Laura
This nib is my absolute favorite for many modern calligraphy styles. It is rigid enough for beginners yet flexible enough - (maybe not capable of producing extra thick lines). As a lefty, I struggled with the angle and other nibs almost made me give up. This nib is extremely smooth on upstrokes and doesn't poke and rip the paper in thin upstrokes ( it almost feels as smooth as a ball point pen rather than a pointed tip!). I love using it in an oblique holder for best results with my writing angle and thanks to this nib I went from beginner to almost advanced level in a couple weeks. Highly recommended.
