Overfeed, one

An overfeed is a device that when used correctly can expand the width and length of your drawn lines. An overfeed can increase the range of your thin and thick lines by a factor of ten, which means your thickest line will be ten times as thick as your thinnest line. The overfeed increases the capacity of ink held by the nib, and continues to feed ink to the tip of then nib when the nib flexes back off the underfeed. 

Our overfeeds are suitable for use in our pens only and are designed for flexible pointed nibs. Be sure to select the right size overfeed for your nib. Click <b>Size</b> for your options below. You have three choices: Gillott 303, Zebra Manga G, and Brause Rose. 

Read Why you need to use overfeeds with flexible dip nibs.

Your pen must already be equipped for use with one of our overfeeds if you want to use an overfeed. If your pen does not have an overfeed, then you must first order one of our overfeed pens. 

<b>Note:</b> The product picture shows two overfeeds. You receive one overfeed with your order. The photo is of two overfeeds is provided to give you a different views of the overfeed. 

Using overfeeds

An overfeed is a device that rests on top of a flexible nib, stores additional ink for use by the nib, and feeds the ink to the nib when it flexes back and off the underfeed. As a result, the overfeed lets you draw a wider range of thick lines, sometimes two or three times as wide as you would otherwise draw. You can see a comparison of the results below.
