About This Product

The compact, dependable Tachikawa T-17WD pen holder is made exclusively for tube nibs, the very small and precise pens that are sometimes called "crowquills" or "mapping pens." These nibs make the finest marks for small, consistent lettering and ultrafine hatch marks, and the T-17WD provides a handle that gives you plenty of control.

Please note, a nib is not included. Pair this holder with a standard mapping nib, like the ones manufactured by Tachikawa's Nikko brand. Regular, non-tube-shaped nibs will not fit in this holder.

Made in Japan.
