N107. Gillott 291 Nib.

Small, delicate nib for very small script (x-heights under 1/16"). Requires very light touch to keep it from catching on the upstroke. Useful for retouching letters made with larger pens. The Gillott 291 is stronger than the Gillott 290 and is probably more useful for script.

- Made in England
- Blue-finish steel
- Stamped on nib: 291 / Joseph / Gillot's / Mapping Pen

Did not work for me

This nib was very hard to start. I was only able to get it to work when I tried it with a thick solution of Bleedproof white. Indeed super fine hairline with challenging upstrokes! I do not foresee myself reaching out for this nib anytime soon, so it is a pass for me.
