    This is very helpful information especially to see the comments of the calligraphers is using the various kinds of nibs. My personal favorite is also the Brause EF66, but depends upon the project yet I find it is most versatile for my needs. Thank you for this useful blog. Judy Stough, Arizona

  2. This is such a great post! Just goes to show that nib preference is very subjective, and that we should try many of them to find ones we like. As our skills develop, our preferences change too! I only wish the photos are larger. Viewing the blog from my desktop, I could barely see the thumbnails, and not all of them are clickable to be enlarged.

  3. This is awesome!!! Thank you so much for putting this together. I just got my sampler in yesterday and can’t wait to dive in! 🙂 🙂

      You can purchase them all separately on our website. Which style of calligraphy interests you most? We have blog articles with recommendations for both pointed pen and broad edge calligraphy.

    Aside from getting to see the beautiful penmanship and difference amongst nibs, I love getting to see a little bit of everyone’s personality. Such a great blog post!

    Hi, I just loved this. I’m a beginner and I was so confuse about witch ones to buy because there are so many numbers for the same nib and where I live I can only find on internet without many choices and there are no explanations for the differences between them. I have the Leonardt 40, 41 (but they are rusted 🙁 ) , Gillott 303, which I think it’s a little difficult to use and a few more that I found in a kit but they have no name, I want to buy the famous Brause but there’s not here yet. Thank you so much for this.
