Description

N113. Nikko G Nib.

These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long-lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull.

  • Great nib for pointed pen scripts
  • Excellent for beginners
  • In JNB Pointed Nib Sampler (N154)
  • Made in Japan - originally developed for manga, Japanese comic illustration
  • Hand inspected prior to packing
  • Chrome steel
  • Stamped on nib: G / NIKKOPEN / Nikko / Made in Japan
  • Michael Sull's favorite pen nib for Spencerian - Recomended by Eleanor Winters as a first nib for Copperplate
  • Writes very smoothly - Does well on less smooth surfaces, but thick/thin contrast is limited.

For Shinah of Crooked Calligraphy, the Nikko G is her "FAVORITE overall, general-use nib." The nib is "sturdy" and "won't break or warp under high pressure," and its tip "is not too sharp, so it won't catch on the paper too much." 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.

    Great nib.

    Posted by Samuel Walter on Mar 18th 2013

    This nib works perfectly for fast informal writing as it almost never catches on the paper. It also has a nice amount of flex. However, it does not work nearly as well for formal writing.

    this is a wonderful nib to use, smooth writting in ANY direction and makes perfect hairlines . has a nice spread with a good flex. Great for beginners.

    As a beginner with fine point, I declare this nib as a phenom--and nothing short of it. It is an immensely smooth nib in any direction--especially those upward strokes. Also, it has a wide tine spread. I shall be purchasing more.
