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.
In addition, these nibs are also very good for calligraphy, and I bought these mainly for calligraphy.
By the way, they are perfect with the nib holder, "Tachikawa Comic Pen Nib Holder, Model 40 (T-40)".
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase, and it is well worth the five stars rating!
I have included few photos for you to look at the details of the product.

I really have no complaints. Fantastic, and a great value. Do yourself a favor...put down the techpen and pick this up. It may seem old fashioned, but if you're drawing manga or a manga-inspired style, you really should at least LEARN this method. Remember: Know the rules so that you can then effectively break them. ;)
