Zebra Comic Pen Nib - G Model - Chrome - Pack of 10
Top customer reviews
I just bought myself a pen by the Desiderata pen co which fits this nib. I will update after some further experience with this nib.
The "G-Pen" as it is usually referred to as is a dip pen, which means it requires a separate bottle of ink in order to write. The nib has a small slit at the top which allows it so bend as you write (or draw.) Don't freak out if you notice the tip splitting in two directions, that's how this works. The G-Pen can produce a variety of different lines because of it's innate ability to spread the ink in a very wide or very narrow application. The nice thing about this "pressure sensitivity" is that it allows you to create a beautiful "ebb and flow" with your artwork. Essentially, you can go from a thin line, to a thick line, and back again with one stroke all without having to switch pens. I've found that in addition to providing this variety per stroke that the G-pen can be used to draw lines with consistent width (with practice of course.) More often than not, I'll use this nib to sign an artwork once I’ve finished it, seeing as I can get a much thinner line with this pen than with any other!
The only downside to this type of pen is that it is, indeed, a dip pen, as I mentioned before. Getting used to dipping your pen every few strokes isn't the easiest transition for an artist to make, so keep that in mind before you make your purchase. There are also quite a few other Japanese pen nibs that are pretty widely used and have some very different applications. The "School Pen" nib is used to draw consistently thin lines at a uniform thickness, and the "kabura pen" provides heavier lines which comes in handy for filling in dark spaces. The reason the G-pen is so widely used though is because it can essentially provide both!
The nature of this "ebb and flow" this pen makes does make for somewhat of a learning curve, so be aware that you might not master it right away. A lot of people have found that this kind of pen is difficult to switch to at first. But I can vouch for it being a worthy endeavor if you choose to pursue it.
I bought my nibs from a different website jetpens.com but I have bought and used plenty of this exact item. If you're a casual artist like me I doubt you'll be going through too many of these in the near future. The craftsmanship is very fine and I’ve yet to come across any defects in the sets that I’ve bought.
All in all, a good pen nip with a variety of applications. I would recommend this to just about anyone, just keep in mind that it’s likely to be far different from anything you’ve ever drawn with.
I bought these after watching a video on altering a JinHao 450 pen. I did that and I have to say I am VERY impressed!.
I had originally bought a Noodlers Ahab over a year ago when I was just getting into handwriting and flex nibs. I have to say I haven't been all that impressed with the Noodlers pens. First, they are expensive, relatively speaking. The fact that I have gotten two Jinhaos for way less will never have me go back. The other thing is that I can swap out the nibs in the Jinhaos with these Zebra G nibs and they write so much better than the Noodlers flex nibs.
I have been desperately wanting to improve my handwriting and wanted a pen that could give me that old fashioned, calligraphy style lettering . These Zebra G nibs totally do the trick!. I am able to write very fancy now ;>).
WARNING: Depending on the INK you are using and/or pen you may have to play around with getting the ink to flow. If you store your pen upside down it shouldn't be much of a problem, but if you find the ink has "dried up" just open your pen, if you have that style and "force feed" (very gently mind you, not too much) the ink back into the nib and write a few lines or gently tap the nib on a scrap paper to get it flowing again. ALSO for some reason using this nib and or the ink WILL BLEED on certain kinds of paper so be warned. I think it is more about the nib because I am using the same ink in a different pen and it bleeds far less, so just a warning. (can't use regular notebook paper)
Other than that, I am toying with getting yet ANOTHER Jinhao 450 and put another one of these nibs in that one too (with a different ink). You get 10 nibs to a box and I only had to replace it once when I accidently dropped my fountain pen on the floor and I think I messed up the nib.. no biggie.
I will try and post writing samples later
