Draw and write with a Tachikawa Manga G nib in our Pump Pen using an overfeed.
Contains one Tachikawa Manga G nib and matching feed
Overfeed extends the width and range of your drawn lines
Replace the nib easily - slip out the old and stick in the new
Use other nibs - see the list below
Use any ink or paint, even India ink or acrylic paint
Press the pump when you want a stronger flow - you get what you press, from a drop to a gush.
Large capacity cartridge - draw all day and don't worry about running out
Screw-on cap and reservoir prevent leakage
Our Pump Pen is ideal for encouraging the flow of ink or paint. This is especially useful when you want to:
Kick start the flow for a new nib
Force ink to a nib with constricted ink flow
Ink in large areas, such as backgrounds and back drops
Force more ink or paint for a surge when you want to draw more quickly, flex back nibs or work with quill nibs where the ink flows through the nib tube
Work with thicker inks and paints that don't flow easily
About the overfeed
The overfeed extends the width and range of lines you can draw. It rests above the nib, stores more ink between the nib and overfeed, and controls the degree of flex, which lets you draw wider lines for a longer time. Read more about our overfeeds.
You can replace the overfeed with a spacer when you don't want to use the overfeed. Slip overfeeds and spacers in and out.
About the reservoir
You can double the volume of ink or paint stored in the pen by removing the reservoir and filling the body. The reservoir provides a double wall of protection, which might be what you want, but you can carry more volume without the reservoir.
