The Hunt 22 is one of our best-selling nibs for both beginners and seasoned calligraphers. This pointed nib is very similar to the Gillott 303 except for a couple key differences. Although the 22 has an excellent range of flexibility, it is slightly stiffer than the 303 and requires more pressure to create thick swells. Both nibs are very sharp and produce elegant hairlines, but the Hunt 22 isn't quite as sharp and can handle textured papers, such as Arches hot press, much easier.
These dependable nibs are excellent for Copperplate and suitable for Spencerian as well.
Regular Hunt 22 nibs are also available, and are desired by some users who find the Hunt 22B Vintage nibs too rigid.
These are sometimes called Hunt 22B.
Stamped on nib: HUNT EXTRA FINE 22
Note from manufacturer: There may be slight uneven discoloration on the surface of the nib, however it does not affect usage of the nib. Please purchase this nib only if you are comfortable with this as exchanges/refunds will not be entertained.
