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.

Great set to learn dip pens drawing
from Russellville, Arkansas
Comments about Speedball Crow Quill Dip Pen and Nibs:
Good fine lines, the set includes an excellent ink bottle that goes along well. When using the ink on the go, take a bit of plastic wrap from the kitchen to put between the lid and bottle after opening. This will help keep the ink from leaking in your pocket or bag. But otherwise it's nicely portable and as a drawing pen it's great. I learned to use dip pens on these as a kid and the price is excellent, it's a great starter. For writing too, though you may want to get a larger holder and other Speedball nibs for calligraphy that needs a chisel tip. I bought extras to give students.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really pleased with quality of tip and performance
from Washington DC, US
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.
Dip and go
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.

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!

Gifted to a nephew just starting out - he loved it!
