N19. Hiro Leonardt Roundhand Nib
Bronze. Sizes: 0, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 5, 6.

These nibs are similar to Mitchell Rexel Roundhand but are a bit stiffer. Also called Chronicle, Hiro Rond, and Manuscript. As with the Mitchell Roundhand nibs you may want to purchase (Mitchell) reservoirs for your Hiro Roundhand nibs.

"Manuscript pens recently produced their bronze, instead of their gilt, nibs and a group of Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society members tested them. Whereas everyone had hated the gilt ones, the bronze ones were approved by everyone. Gaynor Goffe approves of them too, but still likes the Mitchell Roundhand nibs as well." -- Lorna Bambury, Great Bookham, England

My new favorite dip nibs
Mar 27, 2020  |  By Anthony Ambrosio
As a left-hander who prefers square cut nibs over right or left oblique, these and Mitchell are the only square cut dip nibs Ive been able to find. While Mitchell makes a fine nib, I prefer these as they provide just the right amount of flex.
