The fine glass tips are twisted in a light spiral and hold the ink in a capillary action in the flutes on the outside of the nib. They can write a surprising amount before re-dipping, and do not dribble or leave blotches unless shaken.
These pens can be used with most fountain, drawing, or technical inks as well as liquid watercolors and liquid acrylics.
I know that the only way to decide whether you really like a pen or not is to hold it, which is kindof difficult to do over the internet, so I have a solution. Buy it. If you don't like it, ship it back (your cost and everything must be returned in like new condition), and I will give you a full refund. I don't think that you can get fairer than that.
