N120. Leonardt Principal EF Nib
N120.EF Principal Nib

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.

S620. Clear Dappen Dish
Dappen Dish / Dampen Dish.

These small wide mouthed glass containers with relatively heavy bases are ideal for holding gesso, ink or gouache.

Peter Thornton used a dampen dish to reconstitute prepared gesso in a gilding workshop that John attended. He put a piece of prepared gesso in one of these small shot glasses, added drops of water, and got the gesso to the correct consistency. He then applied the gesso to his quill or pen from the dappen dish.
