Welcome to dickblick
Crow quill pens have a cylindrical body that only fit a crow quill nib, which generally draws finer lines than a standard nib.
#102 Crow Quill Nib
#102 Crow Quill Set
This is a terrific starter set for those who do pen-and-ink drawing. It includes a Speedball #102 Crow Quill nib, a Style A pen holder, and 0.40 oz of Black calligraphy ink. The nib, which is handcrafted in the USA, comes to a very fine point, ideal for making fine lines. The calligraphy ink is an excellent, dark black ink that is acid-free, archival, and water-resistant. For best results, clean the nib with pen cleaner and warm water after use.
Durable plastic holder is 5" long and fits crow quill nibs #102, #107, and #108.
#107 Stiff Hawk Crow Quill Nib
Superfine, stiffer than #102, for long, even lines, cross-hatching.
#108 Litho Crow Quill Nib
Flexible, bronze finish, for cross-hatching, flourishes.

Really pleased with quality of tip and performance
from Washington DC, US
Comments about Speedball Crow Quill Dip Pen and Nibs:
I use this for outlining images in re-creations of medieval illuminations. Was worried the very low price might mean cutting corners on the quality of the nib; but the nib is very nice, clean, well-finished, works perfectly and is easy to handle. They saved money in the plastic handle (though solid plastic so it's got enough weight to not cause problems in handling it). Delighted to see cost-cutting in the right areas, good quality in the important areas - I feel I spent my money wisely and am very pleased with this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Dip and go
from Brooklyn, N.Y.
Its best to buy these in bulk if you can... since I do a lot of inking, need this item all the time. Flexible, good quality line and with the right or light touch the nip will last for a while but its always good to have a bunch on hand.
Easy Art with Pen & Ink
from Fort Myers, Florida
Great waterproof ink makes my art sparkle. I like the idea that I can order in bulk for my upcoming classes. Fast delivery allows me to order just what I need when I get my class headcounts.
from Sarasota FL
Very nice set for inking. Purchase the #108 and you make good use of the pen holder.Ink is very nice. Great introduction, or even for advanced ink artists.
A great classic tool for ink.
We are using these to have a look at classic inking skills and then proceed to the flow of zentangling!

Bought Pen Nibs On-line
from Boston, MA
I use the Hunt 102 quill pen for all my comics work. It's flexible, versatile, and comfortable. I buy them in bulk, and Blick was very prompt with their delivery. A+.

Good, utilitarian product that gets the job done.
A Plus For Ames Lettering Guide
By Johnny Doodle
from FL Panhandle
What a contraption. This plastic item looks like some basic drafting tool (and by golly it is!) but it's also a standard guide used in comic strips for lettering (see most any successful cartoonist from Walt Kelly "Pogo" to Bill Watterson "Calvin & Hobbes" and beyond and you'll find they used tools like this, the others use computerized font) and for a few bucks it does the trick for old fashioned hand lettering mighty fine. It was interesting to see the precision after using the Ames Lettering Guide compared to just using a ruler to lay out dialogue areas. Lettering is where I tense up and overthink and overdo and moan and groan and nash my teeth until the correction fluid comes out so I needed all the extra help I could get and was glad to learn about this handy dandy lettering guide item. And if I sleep with it under my pillow my lettering will look just as good as Kelly's and Watterson's!
