The Brause EF66 is one of our most popular nibs, and is loved by calligraphers everywhere for it's flexibility, impressive strength, and amazing line variation. From tiny hairlines to juicy downstrokes, this nib does it all. The Brause EF 66 also does not catch as easily as most extra-fine nibs, so it makes a great choice for lettering on textured paper. Sometimes referred to as "the Arrow" due to its unique shape.

This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners. Excellent for Copperplate, modern calligraphy, and tiny writing. Suitable for Spencerian.

This nib will not fit standard holders; try one of our adjustable holders, or a holder specially fitted to hold the Brause EF66:
Ink Slinger 66
Pocket Scribbler Oblique EF66
Ziller Oblique Holder 66, Red
Mitchell #51 Crowquill and Small Nib Holder
Hunt 104 Penholder

This Brause 66EF is another little nib, that works wonderful! It also holds a lot of ink. It will only fit a smaller nib holder though.

My favorite nib!

I come back to the Brause EF66 more than any other of my nibs. It's flexible, yet easy to use. Perfect for several different papers/inks/surfaces. Provides wonderful contrast between upstrokes and downstrokes. P&IA has them at a wonderful price, and they always arrive quickly, and packaged well. I order these by the dozen!

I love cute things and didn't know how cute letters you can achieve with this nib. It does not fit all nib holders, I use it with a universal oblique holder (with the screw).

Small but mighty

This little nib is awesome! Because of its smaller size, it does need to be dipped more frequently, but its result is so worth it! Pretty flexible and makes nice stroke contrast.

My New Favorite Nib
May 24, 2020
To be very honest, I was reluctant to try this nib. I am an intermediate calligrapher, with experience in modern, Engrossers, and Spencerian pointed pen calligraphy and I have used Hunt 101, 103, and 513ef; Nikko G; and Brause Steno Blue Pumpkin nibs before using this nib. I prefer flexible nibs--hence Hunt 101--was my favorite, but like when nibs have large ink capacities like the Nikko G, which I use for Spencerian. I liked how small the modern Hunt 103 was, but hated how much it caught on fibers. I also liked the flexibility of the Blue Pumpkin, but it barely held ink, rusted easily, and produced large swells with difficulty. Yet, even though I was sure no nib could ever surpass the Hunt 101, except for the Leonardt Principal EF, which is sitting on my desk and I have yet to try, I was able to find everything I wanted and needed in the Brause 66EF. This nib is flexible like the Hunt 101, small like the Hunt 103, does not catch on fibers like the Brause Steno Blue Pumpkin, and is durable like the Nikko G. I can write with one dip with the Brause 66 EF what would take me two to three dips with the Hunt 101. While Spencerian can be done with the Brause 66 EF, I much prefer reserving my Nikko G nibs for that script. Otherwise, now I do not know what I will do with my Hunt 101 nibs. I only purchased one of these nibs, because I was not sure I would like them, but now I want to purchase a lot more. It is the perfect size for writing small script, which is what I mostly do, but easily adjusts to large, juicy swells when flourishing or writing larger letters with a tiny bit more pressure. I just love this nib!
