Our Super Sketch nibs are flexible nibs that let you draw in every direction quickly and easily, perfect for sketching. While the design is based on Manga G nibs, the tips of our Sketch nibs won’t catch on the paper and snag. You can replace the nib easily - slide out the old nib and insert the new. These nibs last a long time, and you can polish and shape them to your purpose. 

Our Piston Demos are attractive clear pens that let you see into the pen and keep track of your ink quantity. They get their name "demo" from "demonstrator" because they demonstrate the inner workings of a fountain pen. 

Our piston demos use a piston device to fill and empty the pen. This keeps your hands clean and lets you keep track of the color ink you're using, how much is left in the pen, and switch inks quickly. You can remove the piston device to clean the inside of the pen. 

You can order more Sketch nibs.

Polishing Sketch nibs

Sketch nibs are similar to traditional fountain pens and last much longer than dip nibs. Paper is rough, so your Sketch nibs will need polishing from time to time on the underside of the tip. You can also reshape the tip with more vigorous polishing if you want a special effect, such as left oblique or stub.
