N113. Nikko G Nib

N90. Brause Steno Nib 361
N90. Brause Blue Pumpkin (Steno 361).

These are similar to the Hiro #40 Blue Pumpkin, but stiffer and better made. Excluding the "G" pens, these nibs last much longer than most other current pointed nibs.

Quantity prices available at 10 & 50.

N74. Gillott 404 Nib
N74. Gillott 404 Nib.

A popular nib. Fairly stiff nib, suitable for writing at x-heights from 3/16" to 1/4", on all surfaces from smooth to textured. Good choice for beginners (or those with a heavy hand.) Because they require more pressure to create the swells, stiffer nibs are easier to control. Thicker hairlines than others, making it a good choice for work for reproduction.

Recommended by Eleanor Winters in her Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy (B1109) for beginners and professionals because they "provide fine line quality without being too fragile." Satisfactory for Spencerian Script.

H114. Turned Wood Oblique Holder
H114. Turned Wood Oblique Holder.

The Ornamental Wood Holder has intricate ornamental turnings inspired by those on the Century Penholders. Color of holder varies.
The Tapered Wood Holder has a finely tapered classic shape. All Tapered are the same dark brown/black color.
The Ebony Wood Holder has the same design as the Ornamental version, but is made out of a very dark (almost black) African hardwood. This version is slightly heavier than the other versions.
The Zanerian Wood Holder is made using the same wood (and colors) as the Ornamental version. The Zanerian design is a very slim shaft with a small finial on the tip.

Each style has the standard brass flange (fitted for the Nikko G nib) and overall length of 6.5-6.75".

Quantity price for 12 or more.

H89. Tachikawa T40 (Multi) Pen Holder
This holder from Japanese company Tachikawa is a high quality, lightweight wood. The holder has a rubber finger grip and uses the plastic collar system to hold the nibs. It will hold the following broad edge nibs: Mitchell, Speedball, Tape, Tachikawa. It will not hold Brause nibs; they are too loose.

One neat feature: this holder has a plastic cap to fit over the nib (and the cap can be posted while you are using the holder!). That way, you can leave the nib in the pen and not worry that it will get damaged.

Total length (excluding cap) is 5.75 inches, width is about 1/2 inch thick.

Made in Japan.

Dr Martin’s Bleed Proof White

A dense, opaque, smooth-writing white for your dip pen. Thin with water to the proper consistency. Tint with watercolor or gouache for pastel letters. Recommended by John Stevens and Peter Thornton. 1oz.

Diane Von Arx uses a similar product, Pro-white (I62).

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different , this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going in to this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.
