This small set is perfect as an introduction to writing with a fountain pen. The set contains 6 pen nibs ranging from extra fine to extra broad, a wooden nib holder and and a helpful calligraphy booklet.
The traditional Cito-fein nib is suitable for old-English script, the LÕecoliere great for writing and drawing, while the Steno (a short-hand blue steel nib) is best for writing. The Pfannen and Rose nibs are both steel-plated and ideal for monoline lettering, and the Index finger nib features a medium fine point and a large reserve of ink. For best results, use calligraphy ink.
These elegant nibs are made in the German town of Iserholn, where Brause has crafted their famous steel products for over a century.
Since 1850, Brause has maintained a reputation for producing high-quality, steel calligraphy nibs favoured by artists and illustrators.
