This lil sh*t f*cking destroys, i mixed black/black japan wood stainer & blue leather dye & a lil steve garvey, trimmed the mohair nib down and poked a few holes in the end with a pin. but probably didnt need to modify the nib at all, i just read ppl having issues with getting it to flow. but nah they probably just kids that dont know how to do sh*t right. one of the best mops i used as its cutty as hell, durable and holds alot of ink. 10 out of 10 b*tch.
