Calligraphy Nibs

Pointed pen nibs vary in their flexibility and not every calligrapher has the same preference for nib types. Different nibs will lend themselves better to different types of inks and papers as well. If you don’t know which nib you are specifically looking for, we recommend the variety pack to try out an assortment of 7 different nibs.
