Nibs to suit different writing styles:

REGULAR PEN-NIBS

With a rounded shape at the tip of the writing point, regular pen-nibs provide a smooth, free flowing writing experience and a uniform writing line for any style of writing, both left-handed and right-handed.

OBLIQUE PEN-NIBS/OBLIQUE PEN-NIBS ORIENTED WITH A CONTRARY SENSE

To compensate for extreme writing angles, these pen-nibs are precision cut at an oblique angle and fitted with a rounded pellet, allowing the pen to write smoothly in all directions.

ITALIC STRAIGHT PEN-NIBS

Manufactured with a sharp, straight cut tip and finished with a flat pellet, this pen-nib applies a thick line in one direction and a thin line at right angles to that direction as necessary for the italic style of writing.
