Ziller has always been a popular ink, and they are now offering metallic colors. Both are very bright and look as good on white paper as on black, and flow well through dip nibs. Stir frequently for best results. 1-ounce glass jar.
Aspen Gold is a warm gold that can be mixed with Ziller Ivory to create a champagne gold.
Sterling Silver ink is very bright and looks as good on white paper as on black.
This powdered ink from Europe has very striking colors. The powders all look about the same, but the mixed ink proves to be warm earthy tones. A little bit goes a long way. Mix in a small, screw-top Dinky Dip: about 1-part powder to 4-parts water. If mixed dark, you can dilute in a palette to get brighter color, and with more water, pastel color.
These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long-lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull.
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.
A remarkably simple design that holds most pen points for
Spencerian and copperplate. Finely crafted wood holder with a sturdy brass oblique arm. This penholder is designed to hold the nib at a less steep slant angle for ease of upstrokes. Also available with a plastic holder. Works with small nibs such as the Brause 66ef and almost all other nibs.
(Works with most all nibs except the very largest vintage nibs and crowquill nibs.)
