The Maia is fitted with a stylus locking mechanism, which means that when fitted with a chisel it will never rotate or spin when you’re working – not once, not ever. Easily switch between point and chisel.
This is also beneficial if you sharpen your own points, as it is not essential to grind dead on centre. Your stylus will remain absolutely stable and hit where you expect each and every time.
