Manga G Pens

Manga G Tachikawa Classic Pump Pen

Draw and write with a Tachikawa Manga G nib in our Classic Pump Pen

  • Contains one Tachikawa Manga G nib and matching feed
  • 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 Classic Pump Pen is ideal for encouraging the flow of ink or paint. This is especially useful when you want to:

  • 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
  • Kick start the flow for a new nib

You can buy Tachikawa Manga G nibs.

With or without overfeed?

You can order this pen with or without an overfeed. 

The overfeed is a device designed to extend the width and range of lines you can draw with a flexible nib. It rests above the nib, stores more ink between the nib and overfeed, controls the spread of the two tynes, and lets you draw wider lines for a longer time. Read more about our overfeeds.

Also see how to use our overfeeds

The version without the overfeed is shipped unless you select the version with an overfeed.

About the reservoir

You can remove the cartridge and fill the pen body with ink and paint. This doubles the capacity but removes the double wall protection provided by a cartridge.

Other nibs you can use in this pen

  • All Japanese Manga G nibs
  • Brause Rose nibs
  • Our Super Sketch nibs
  • Principal nibs
  • Insert an adapter to draw and write with crowquills and Gillott 303 nibs

Brush Tool

You can attach our Brush Tool to the back of this pen and use it to wash your drawing with water or dilute ink as well as paint with watercolors.
