N77. Hunt 101 Imperial.
A very steady and durable nib, the Hunt 101 is a great choice for projects that require larger writing with x-heights above 1/4". It can be used on most paper surfaces, though it can have a tendency to catch on the upstroke when used on a rougher surface. The Hunt 101 requires firm and deliberate pressure to open swells, while its strength and steadiness makes it an ideal selection for student practice. Bronze finish.

Shinah of Crooked Calligraphy notes that the Hunt Imperial 101 nib is "a super flexible nib with a very sharp point best suited for advanced calligraphers," and "because of its flexibility and sharp point" she finds this nib is "great for delicate styles that require a lot of control and precision, like Copperplate." Shinah discusses in more detail her five favorite nibs (Nikko G, Brause Steno, Brause 66EF, Leonard Hiro 41, and Hunt 101) here: https://www.crookedcalligraphy.com/blog/choosing-calligraphy-nibs. She teaches a very popular, 8-week, live-taught online class, Modern Calligraphy 101.
This nib has a real flair, heavy down strokes and hair-line up strokes. It requires a little learning to use it properly.
Nice item, as described, fast shipment. New customer; excellent selection of products, I’ll be back. Great vendor!
Always my go-to nib. Love the contrast between hairlines and swells, holds a decent amount of ink, suitable for a wide range of x-heights (for very small 3mm I prefer the Gillott 303), perfect flex, doesn't catch on most paper, can be used with slightly textured paper.
Love the many items I can find on this site. They are fast to ship and the products are always great. Thank you.

My top three nibs are Hunt 101, Hunt 22 , and Leonardt Principal EF
Unlike so many other places, when you call John Neal during business hours a person answers the phone--right away!
I ordered 5 different nibs and the package was shipped the same day!
The Hunt 101 was my first nib for pointed pen calligraphy--it was one of the few nibs at my local art supply store. I'm happy now that it was my first nib instead of Nikko G or Zebra G--because I learned pressure control early on--though I recall it was a slow process. The G nibs were not available then.
I love the Hunt 101. I get the best results with it when I use Coliro paints.
