N19-S10. Hiro/Leonardt Rond Set of 10
Manuscript Roundhand
Bronze. Set of 10.
Sizes: 0, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 5, 6.

These nibs are similar to Mitchell Rexel Roundhand but are a bit stiffer. Also called Chronicle, Hiro Rond, and Manuscript. As with the Mitchell Roundhand nibs you may want to purchase (Mitchell) reservoirs for your Hiro Roundhand nibs.

These are the Chronicle nibs that Cari Ferraro recommends in her new book Calligraphy & Illumination (B2933, $9.95)

"Manuscript pens recently produced their bronze, instead of their gilt, nibs and a group of Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society members tested them. Whereas everyone had hated the gilt ones, the bronze ones were approved by everyone. Gaynor Goffe approves of them too, but still likes the Mitchell Roundhand nibs as well." -- Lorna Bambury, Great Bookham, England
