Hunt 101 Imperial. Box of 12 nibs.

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.
