  1. I feel like I am simply failing at Google with this, but are there capped dip pen holders like the Tachikawa T-40 but with the usual metal petaled insert instead of the plastic/rubber rings? Conversely, is there a way to convert a Tachikawa to that type of metal nib holder insert (or purchase one, since I lack skills)? Is there a clever way to shim a nib into this holder, perhaps, as a temporary measure? My issue is that I am taking a calligraphy class which has provided me with a nib that I was hoping to fit into a capped Tachikawa for easier transport (I like how the cap protects the nib better than me just wrapping a paper towel from the bathroom around it to keep the ink from getting all over me and my stuff). The nib (a Brause No.180 2 1/2mm broad?) falls right out, so I am not sure what the quickest solution would be. I am hesitant to do anything to the nib itself, and while I could try to purchase a different nib, I would like to stick with what was provided while in the class and also have no guarantee this wouldnt occur with any other nib I purchase that isnt a comic G (which seems to be all I can find in terms of what people are putting into this holder successfully, aside from an occasional maru/crow nib). Comic G wont really work for an italics class :/ Any suggestions or links to existing products that I am failing to find on Google are appreciated, and I apologize if this has already been asked. I didnt see another topic and this seemed like the most appropriate forum, but my search capabilities are admittedly poor
