N19. Hiro Leonardt Roundhand Nib Bronze. 

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 preferred broad nib

    Posted by Bradley Rose on Sep 28th 2023

    This is my favorite broad edge nib that just works and allows me to focus on my lettering shapes. Some others I have tried in comparison: Mitchell are fiddly, difficult to start and scratchy risking splattering droplets with the highly flexible nib. I found myself focusing more on the nib that the letters. Speedball C, Tape, Tachikawa are ok but tricky to clean with the attached reservoirs.

    Hiro/Leonard Rond Nib

    I press hard at times w/my use of the broad edge nib and found a Mitchell flexed too much at times. The description of this nib said it was firmer than other broad edged nibs & it was right! This nib is excellent for me, thanks JNB, your product descriptions really help!

    My new favorite dip nibs

    Posted by Anthony Ambrosio on Mar 27th 2020

    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.
