The Gillott 290 is very similar to the Gillott 291
, save for a few key differences. This nib is small and delicate, and can easily be damaged if too much pressure is applied. A light touch is required.
Produces exceptional hairlines, but is better suited for touching up work created by larger pens rather than script itself. Catches easily and will perform best on very smooth surfaces. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler
