Joe Vitolo in his book Learn to Write Script in the Copperplate Style recommends this nib as very serviceable for Copperplate Script. For this script he writes: The nib must have a sufficiently flexible point to allow for the formation of shaded down strokes by applying downward pressure to the pen. It should also be sharp enough to allow for fine hairlines to contrast the shades. Other modern nibs he recommends for Copperplate-style scripts are the Leonardt Principal, Gillott 303, Gillott 1068A, Hunt 22b.
