Nibs for heavy handed people

Hi, Schin! Do you have any recommendations of nibs for heavy-handed people? I did look at your FAQ page, but was wondering if any of those are good for heavy-handed people in particular.

Hmm.. well the aim is to eventually develop a light touch, but if you have a heavy hand perhaps a Nikko G or Zebra (both made by the same people) may help. It is a friendly, long lasting nib and I frequently use it as well. Just make sure to clean the oil off of it thoroughly before using!
