Very glad to have gotten this.

I've been practicing with a guide that recommends using this exact nib, and picked it up so that I don't have any excuses. Used a Nikko G for a very long time, and I'm really back n' forth between which I like better. The G nib has some very excellent hairline qualities, that this simply doesn't, but the 404 can really work some excellent flexes.

Both, of course, are exceptional nibs for any calligraphy for flex nibs, both really good just with different behaviors, and my only real complaint about the 404 is that it seems a little more prone to want to tweeze up wet paper, I think just as a consequence of being springy, but it may also have some sharper inside edges, as the Nikko's are very well polished, comparatively.

All in all, I'd say this is a near requisite to your nib arsenal.
