Brause Nibs


This page features our Brause pointed pen nibs.We also carry Brause Oblique Cut Calligraphy nibs: Click here



N70. Brause 66EF Nib
EF66 Brause pointed-pen nib

A very popular and versatile nib for Copperplate and Modern Calligraphy. It is very flexible and can provide great contrast between thin and thick strokes. Moderate pressure will produce swells, and by pressing harder, bold strokes are possible. With its fine hairlines, the nib works for very small writing, to a 1/8-inch x-height. This nib is of consistent manufacture (defective nibs are rare). It tends to catch less on upstrokes than other extra-fine pointed nibs, making it more suitable for papers with some texture. This nib is well-suited for intermediate and advanced calligraphers, but it is not recommended for beginners. Because of its shape, it is also called Arrow Nib.
.
The nib’s shaft has a tight curvature and needs a specially adjusted oblique holder. These oblique penholders are available adjusted specifically for the Brause 66EF:
H115. Adjusted Turned Wood Oblique Holder
H96. Black Oblique Plastic Holder (Comfort-Grip)
H130. Blue Oblique Plastic Holder (Comfort-Grip)

The nib’s tip can be clipped and polished to produce a narrow, very flexible, broad-edged nib (See page 35 of Bound & Lettered 12.3 for instructions).

See Tabellae Ansata issue 2.4 for an article that discuss the characteristics in detail of the various pointed nibs.

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

The Brause Steno is also called Brause 361 or the Blue Pumpkin nib, from its rounded shape and blue color. It look likes and basically writes like the Hiro 40 (also called Blue Pumpkin), but the Brause Steno is stiffer, better made, and gives thinner hairlines and is more beginner friendly. Some calligraphers find it also holds more ink than Hiro 40 and that it works better with thicker inks like sumi and not as well with thinner inks like Pelikan 4001. The Brause Steno has moderate flex, and needs but a little pressure for shaded strokes. While suitable for Copperplate, it may be now used more often for Modern Calligraphy. Excluding the "G" pens, Brause Steno nibs last much longer than most other current pointed nibs.

This nib is in the JNB Pointed Nib Samplers (N154 & N117-1).

Quantity prices available at 10 & 50.

A slim plastic holder for small nibs. Comes with a Brause 511 nib. The holder comes with the nib stored inside the holder out of sight. You pull out the cylinder of metal that protrudes from the holder (this can take some effort), and re-insert the cylinder into the holder with the nib on the outside.

Holds the Gillott 270, Gillott 271. The nibs (pen points) are held inside the metal cylinder that extend out the end of the holder when the 511 is stored inside the holder.

Holds the Gillott 270, Gillott 271 and similar sizes tightly. Regular penholders with the four prongs in the ring do not hold these small nibs tightly, allowing them to wiggle.

Color varies.
