A sampler of my favourite calligraphy nibs.
(1) Hiro / Leonardt #40 Nib (Blue Pumpkin)
(1) Nikko G – A large nib, firm and good for beginners, intermediates, and metallic inks. Requires a heavy hand to get a thicker line.
(1) Gillott 404 – Perfect for beginners. Firm, but quite flexible through the tines to lend to a thicker swell without having to use much pressure at all. Excellent for fine hairlines and heavy swells. Works great for getting thick lines on slick paper such as shimmer paper.
(1) Blanzy 2552
