About This Product

Nikko Mapping Pen 659 is the old-school type of artist's nib that's sometimes called a "tube nib" or "crowquill." These tiny, super-sharp nibs are perfect for small lettering, cross-hatching, and many other tricky tasks for graphic artists.

We offer the Nikko Mapping Pen Nib in a set of 10, with a reusable plastic case and a small sheet of anti-rust paper to protect your nibs. It's nice to have replacements ready, because after metal nibs are used for a while, they lose some of their tensile strength and become less precise. You can tell it's time for a new nib when you can clearly see daylight between the tines.

Compatible only with tube nib holders, including Tachikawa's T-17, T-25, T-36, and T-40 pen holders. Look for a holder with a small, circular mount to hold this type of nib. Universal holders, like Tachikawa's, have channels for tube nibs and regular nibs in the same mount.

Made in Japan.
