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.

Linda Schneider's favorite pointed nib is the Brause 66EF. It is the one she uses most often; she says it is "tiny, but mighty." She notes how it writes longer on one dip than most larger nibs (it may be small, but it holds a lot of ink) and that its flexibility allows for especially nice thicks. With the Brause 66EF she can get the "tiniest of hairlines and beautiful swells."

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.

H96. Black Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder
This comfort-grip, black plastic, "hourglass" holder with an oblique brass flange is a great improvement over the Speedball Oblique Holder. The flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper and the flange is pre-adjusted for our most popular nibs.

This holder does not include a nib.

Choose nib adjustment: 66EF (Brause 66EF), 303 (Gillott 303), PRIN (Principal EF), NIKK (Nikko G).
