These pens get their name "demonstrator" because they demonstrate the inner workings of a fountain pen.Our demonstrators use a piston device to fill and empty the pen. This keeps your hands clean, lets you switch inks quickly, and reveals the amount of ink you have left.
You can buy Nikko Manga G nibs.

Change your flow rate
This pen ships with the Standard Flow Feed, which works with most popular drawing inks and paints. You can order the Rich Flow Feed, which is designed for especially thick inks and paints, such as traditional India ink and acrylic paint. You can also order the Thin or Slow Flow Feed, which is designed for use with thin fountain pen inks that artists enjoy, such as De Atramentis Document ink.
We suggest you try the standard flow feed first, and if that doesn't work, step up to the rich flow feed.
Compared to our black pens . . .
Clear Demonstrators look better, you can see the volume of ink and paint that remains, and they are easier to fill, but they don't work as well with artistic media. If you leave India ink and acrylic paint inside piston filler pens, you run the risk of the media drying out inside the reservoir. When this happens, you have to clean out the reservoir. The reservoir is a sealed compartment that takes several steps to access. We describe how to do this in the user information. We even provide a tool that helps gain access.
