I37. McCaffery's Penman's Ink
McCaffery’s Penman’s Ink
1 oz. jar.

This oak gall ink was developed with the help of leading penmen of today to provide an ink similar to that used during America’s golden age of Ornamental Penmanship in the 19th and 20th centuries. With a newly opened bottle, the ink writes brown but turns a dense black. Good for fine hairlines. See Colored Inks for colors and ivory McCaffery’s (colors and ivory are not oak gall inks).
Formulated for the pointed pen which is used for Spencerian, copperplate, etc, not for the broad-edged pen used for italic, blackletter (gothic), etc.

N113. Nikko G Nib
These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull. Extremely popular with pointed pen men and women!

P25-100. JNB Practice Pad 8.5x11. 100 shts.
JNB Practice Pad
8.5"x11". Approximately 100 sheets.

August 2015. The paper in this pad has been changed. The new paper is much better with the ink. There was a price increase with the new paper.

Smooth paper for pointed pen and broad edge calligraphy. The paper takes the ink well and does not bleed or feather with most inks. (We tested with Higgins Eternal, Noodler’s, McCaffery's, and Richtone Colors, as well as Pilot Parallel Pen ink cartridges). For pointed pen, the smooth surface helps avoid pen catches on upstrokes. Guidelines will show through. Good for classes and practice (24 lb bond).

For an 11"x17" version of this pad, see item P20.

S681. Sumo Grip Mechanical Pencil
