Manga G Tachikawa Pump Pen



Draw and write with a Tachikawa Manga G nib in our 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 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 version without the overfeed is shipped unless you select the version with an 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, controls the spread of the two tynes, and lets you draw wider lines for a longer time. Read more about our overfeeds.

You can remove the overfeed if you don't want to use it. You can replace the overfeed with a spacer. We ship one spacer with each overfeed pen. You can slip overfeeds and spacers in and out.

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

  • Nikko Manga G and Leonardt Principal nibs fit perfectly
  • Insert our large nib feed to use the Zebra Manga G, Brause Rose and our Sketch nibs as well as Hunt nibs 22B, 56, and 101
  • Insert an adaptor to draw and write with crowquills and Gillott 303 nibs

Brush Attachment

You can attach our Brush Attachment Tool to the back of this pen and use it to wash your drawing or add one shade of watercolor.
