Description

N79. Hunt 108

Bronze finish quill pen for cross-hatching, flourishing and lithography.

"The #108 can produce super fine hairlines, and also nice wide shades with light pressure. It also has a surprisingly large ink holding ability and isn't as scratchy as some other superfine nibs. It works best on very smooth paper. Now that there is an inexpensive oblique holder for the #108 that holds the nib at a lower angle to the writing surface to reduce scratchiness, perhaps more people will try the nib." Dave G., CA

(H67. Hunt #102 Crowquill Holder works for the Hunt 108 as well as the Hunt 102.)

- Made in USA
- Tubular staff, requires special holder
- Bronze-finish steel
- Stamped on Nib: HUNT / 108

    Extra fine to extra wide

    This is my favorite nib, it has the widest line contrast I've had the pleasure of using. The only drawback is the tip - it's pointy, and it will catch on the paper if the angle is too steep. It' also takes a steady hand to control but it's too much fun!

    Crowd kill nib

    Posted by David mantooth on Nov 1st 2023

    It's not a beginner nib by any means. It is capable of beautiful flourishes for sure, but I'm having a lot of trouble with it. It catches the paper, but it's fine down stroke. I'm giving it a four only because I can't make it work the way I'd like.
