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.

Very nice.

Unfortunately yes, but the nibs can be pulled out and used with the original Delike or Moonman feed and collar that came with the pen you want to put it in.

I finally bought the complete set along with the glass dip nib option. For some odd reason, they chopped the nipple off the back of the feed so that these units can only be used like dib nibs. Thankfully, all the nibs can very easily be pulled from the sleeve and put it other pens that take #5 nibs. You could also use the same sleeve and just change to feed to a regular Delike feed. I haven't inked them up yet, but they all have significant space between the tines so seem to be wet writers.

 

The glass nib cannot be removed from the Delike nib unit, but is kind of cool because it screws into any Delike pen and is small enough that you can cap the pen without worry. It even fits in the little Delike Alpha without a problem, although it doesn't really make sense to have a pocket dip pen when you'd have to carry around ink for it anyway.
