Broke in my new Zebra G-nibs and spoon nibs with some Taakos.
I had some doubts about the G-nibs, since the Tachikawa G-nib was sort of a bust for me, but the Zebra G has the perfect balance of stiffness and bend. It does have a problem with splitting when I press down, but maybe I just didn’t load enough ink in it.
The Zebra spoon nibs (Tama) are also aces; I definitely prefer them over the Speedball 513.
