calligraphy nibs

These pointed nibs are compatible with all penholders sold in the shop. See below for more details.


Nikko G and Zebra G nibs are very good for beginners as they are quite firm in their flexibility and therefore do not require as much precision. They create beautiful thin upstrokes and can achieve thick shades. Brause 361 nibs (sometimes called Blue Pumpkin nibs) are also very good for beginners. They produce slightly thicker downstrokes than the Nikko G and Zebra G nibs
Gillott 303, 404, 1068A and 170 nibs are Copperplate nibs and are more delicate and flexible. They can produce thinner lines than the above nibs and are also good for writing at a smaller size.
All nibs will need prepped before use. If you are unsure how to prep your nibs for writing you can find out how to do it in this blog article
