Hi Debbie,

I love your work and so appreciate you sharing your talent and knowledge with us. I have a question: What do you think of the new Copic Sketch Fine Nibs? I never use the chisel end of my sketch markers and don't have any of the multiliners and was wondering if this would be a good alternative. Would love your feedback. Thankyou for your time.

HI, Deb,

If you do not use the chisel/medium broad nib, then I would definitely consider replacing a few of your nibs to see what you think! I don't have any of these in my possession yet, but I do plan on ordering some when they are available. My problem is that I DO use my chisel nib for airbrushing quite often, so I am in a quandary about replying that chisel nib. I thought I would start by putting one on the handful of markers that I have doubles on, and see how much I use it.

As a replacement for a Multiliner: first, a Multiliner is both Copic-proof and waterproof, so in that sense, a fine nib would not replace a Multiliner. If you are simple looking for a smaller point, it will certainly do that. Do you have any of the Copic Classic markers (also called Copic Originals)? If so, it seemed to me that the new replacement nib was a little bigger than the fine nib on the Copic Classics, if that gives you an idea of size. It is very firm. Honestly, by using good hand-control, I can probably get into a smaller area with my Super Brush nib than I would be able to with the new replacement nib; however, I would still see the new nib as being invaluable to people who may struggle with hand control. I hope that helps!

Debbie
