FP95. Manuscript Beginner's Set
Manuscript Beginners Fountain Pen Set

Barrel, three nibs (fine, medium, 2B) one cartridge. A great inexpensive set for beginning classes. Specify RH or LH. Quantity discount for 3 or more.

The cartridge is already in the barrel. If you do not have two cartridges, you can push the one cartridge into the nib. The post inside the cylindar should puncture and hold the cartridge. The diagram on the back of the packaging shows how the cartridge goes on the nib.

Comes with a Manuscript Converter for using bottled ink, though some customers have had trouble getting the convertor to work well.

(This barrel is different from the deluxe set and shadow sets and the nibs are not interchangeable. Both use the same cartridges.)

M56. Zig Calligraphy Pen Oblique Cut
For Lefthanders and Arabic. 1mm, 2mm, 3mm.

These new water-based, left-handed markers from Zig come in three sizes including the very useful 1mm. Kate Wolff finds the felt tip to be harder/stiffer than other markers which means they give crisper letters and won't mush up as fast as some markers. Available in 3 colors and 3 sizes.

"I have been using the ZIG markers which you sent and they work very well indeed! I even passed them around in my calligraphy courses to get the reaction from students, both beginners and experienced old hands at in the matter. All found them terrific." - Kate Wolff
