As I mentioned in my previous video, converting Jinhao pens to use Zebra G-nibs is a popular way to get a nice soft, flexy nib for calligraphy, vintage scripts, and just general awesomeness. This video explains how to convert a Jinhao 750 to use a Zebra-G nib, though “conversion” is a bit of a stretch. Really, it explains how to flatten a G-nib a bit.
In the video above, I cover two different methods: a method using pliers which is simple but fiddly, and a method with a hammer and drill bit, which is even simpler, but requires some special equipment that not everyone will have.
