Calligraphy lovers rejoice!

Today Shanghai Jingdian started offering sets of five italic nib units that will screw into Delike pens and a few models of Moonman pens. These are currently in their Taobao store, but keep your eyes peeled for them to start showing up on eBay soon.

Looks like the slot get wider as you get closer to the tip.  Is that just an illusion?

 

It's funny that one of the images in the taobao page looks like a screenshot of gothic computer fonts and not actual writing. :unsure:

And a glass tip too. That's interesting. I wonder if it is just dip or works with the ink supply??

Oh no! Before I hadn't bothered to read the Chinese, but I noticed something odd about the back of the nib units. Sure enough, all of these nib units are FOR DIPPING ONLY. That means that they will screw into all those various pens but they cannot take in ink from the back end, so you can only dip them or remove the nib and put it in a regular Delike feed.

Thanks for asking that question. Otherwise I would have been really upset when these came in the mail haha.
