5 of 5 Tachikawa Nib Holder T-40 June 26, 2019
Reviewer: Syed from Toronto  
Other than the obvious fact that this nib holder is compatible with two nib sizes, one other aspect really stood out. The cap at the back can be used as a counterbalance. This I found to be very useful for inking smaller, more detailed areas. I wouldn't necessarily call this a con but it kinda bothered me. When I ink, I tend to rotate my nib holder slightly when I need to. The grip prevents this rotatory motion slightly but it's not too big of a deal. I previously used Speedball's holders. Even without the cap, this holder is still a bit heavier than Speedball's (smaller and bigger ones). Overall, I love it and it's a nice buy.

5 of 5 A big improvement on standard pen-holders August 13, 2018
Reviewer: Larynxa from Toronto  
This pen-holder is more comfortable in the hand than standard holders with cork grips.  Its rubber socket holds nibs much more securely than the metal-flapped socket on standard pen-holders.  Unlike standard holders, it holds large & small nibs.

The cap is a clever addition.  The compact size makes it small enough to carry, nibbed, in an empty TWSBI box.
