Misc. Pointed Nibs

N120. Leonardt Principal EF Nib
N120.EF Principal Nib

After a year in development, you can now purchase a modern nib that is equal to the best of the vintage nibs. Brian Walker, a respected pointed pen enthusiast, has worked with a pen manufacturer to duplicate the quality and performance of the legendary Gillott No 1 Principality. The new nib has received rave reviews for both Copperplate and Spencerian. It’s flexible and responsive and gives fine hairlines, but is smooth-writing and catches the paper less.

N72. Gillott 303 Nib
N72. Gillott 303 Pointed Nib.

*Nov. 2017: We do not know when we will have stock of this nib, due to manufacturing and quality issues. We will backorder the nibs if you purchase 10 or more. If you order fewer than 10, they will be deleted from your order.*

One of the most popular nibs for Copperplate. Good flexibility - not too stiff, not too flexible. Very thin hairlines and good swells. Works for scripts 3/16-1/16". Sharp point, but will work on slightly textured surfaces. Tends to catch on upstrokes. The nib has been retooled to improve reliability and has received excellent reviews.

Mentioned by Eleanor Winters in her Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy (B1109). Satisfactory for Spencerian Script.

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.

N81. Hiro / Leonardt #40 Nib (Blue Pumpkin)

One of our most popular nibs for Copperplate. Large, durable nib appropriate for writing at x-heights of 3/16" to 1/8". Hairlines are fine and uniform, upstrokes smooth.
Sometimes called Leonard Steno or Manuscript Steno.

N82. Hiro Crown Nib (#41)
Large, durable nib appropriate for writing at x-heights of 3/16" to 1/8". Thicker hairlines than the Hiro #40, but is exceptionally smooth-gliding. Moderately thick swells.

N71. Gillott 170 Nib
Smooth-gliding, flexible nib requiring a soft touch. Appropriate for x-heights from 3/16" to 1/4". Not for beginners. Satisfactory for Spencerian Script.

N144. Leonardt Shakespeare Nib
Leonardt Shakespeare Nib.

Long, flexible nib. Smooth writing, fine hairlines. Good for larger script. Can be a fun nib to use, but because of its large size, it may take a while to get used to this nib. Works both on envelopes with a slight texture and smooth paper. Bronze finish. Popular at IAMPETH 2012.

N143. Leonardt G Nib
Leonardt G Nib.

A very nice nib. Medium flex, not too sharp. Nib has a nice spring for good shade-hairline transitions. Good for bigger script. Works both on envelopes with a slight texture and smooth paper. Popular at IAMPETH 2012. Nickel Finish.
