Can I ask a silly question? :)
How do you keep the tip 'tight' enough so the ink doesn't all just spill on the page? And do I just load the ink in the tip?

(I've been spoilt by my fountain calligraphy pen... haven't really worked with any other tool and would like to try some new stuff. :))

Well, I've never had that kind of problem with my folded pens. If you fold them strongly you won't have any problem (but if you prefern, you can also add some scotch tape to make sure it is tight enough, a friend of mine has made a folded pen in this manner, it does work).
And yes, it's enough to load the ink just in the tip.
Good luck!

That's used by calligraphers? Interesting. I didn't know that, then again, I've never really done any before.

Nice work.

Yes, it's even quite common. This one has been done by a professional.
It's not a formal tool of course, but it's interesting to work with this thing with modern gestural calligraphy.
