What nibs can fit in a Tachikawa T-40 holder?
« on: April 12, 2018, 07:02:29 AM »
Hello everyone, I started 'attempting' Engrosser's script since November, with T-40 holder and some Zebra G nibs. Although I also plan to get an oblique holder, what other nibs besides G nibs will fit in my current holder?
Thank you.

Hi JAHT.

I think you'll really enjoy moving to an oblique holder for Engrosser's script.    :D

I have a Tachikawa T-40, and love it (especially for inking art).  Here are a few of my nibs that fit in it:

-Brause EF66 (in the smaller nib grip)
-Brause 361 Blue Pumpkin
-Leonardt Principal EF (this one surprised me)
-Leonardt Hiro 41
-Hunt 101


I didn't try all of my nibs.  If you have any in particular that you want to know about, let me know: if I have it, I'll test it for you.  I hope this helps!

Thank you for the help, at the moment I don't have any of them, but I will definitely check them out.  :)

No problem!  I love trying new nibs out.  I hope you'll find a few that really fit well for you.

Best,
Kristin
