The Brause Steno nib tends to go by many names, including the Brause 361 or the Blue Pumpkin. Some calligraphers find this nib to be a higher quality duplicate of the Hiro 40 nib, which is very similar in appearance and performance. The Steno is less flexible than the Hiro 40, but holds more ink and achieves thinner hairlines. This nib has a unique shape and color as well as a moderate flex, achieving beautiful swells with a little pressure.

This nib produces decent hairlines and can be used for Copperplate, but it is better suited for modern calligraphy styles. Calligraphers of all skill levels will love this nib, and it is more beginner-friendly than the Hiro 40. Durable and long-lasting. Performs better with viscous inks like acrylic and sumi.

Measurements: 40mm long x 8mm at widest / 5.5mm at narrowest

Discounts are as follows: $19.08/dozen, $75.50/box of 50

One of my favorites!

I just love the Brause Steno nib. It was one of the first nibs I purchased, along with the Nikko G, and I found the Nikko G to be stiffer than I liked. This Brause Steno has a lovely flex and makes calligraphy so enjoyable.

The blue pumpkin nib is very well known in calligraphy circles, and for good reason. It holds a ton of ink and adds a beautiful curvature to your letters. It's a more pliable nib, so I would not recommend this for beginners as you need to have a good grasp on pressure (it requires less pressure than a Nikko G). Think of it like driving someone else's car and accidentally slamming on the breaks because you didn't realize how sensitive the breaks are, lol.

This is a big nib. It's not a favorite like my hunt 22 but I love to use this nib when using bleed proof white.

One little nib can do so much!

This nib is great. It holds a ton of ink and can make a wide variety of styles - thick downstrokes with hairline upstrokes, or a more modern look with smaller variation between strokes. This trusty little nib does it all.
