The Gillot 170 is a moderately flexible nib that is much finer than the Gillott 303
. Although it is less flexible than the 303, it produces comparable hairlines and is much smoother, making it a better choice for use on textured papers. Also capable of creating wide swells with a little pressure and a controlled hand.
Great for small to medium Copperplate, suitable for Spencerian. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler
Measurements: 21mm long x 5mm wide
