The Gillott 291 is very similar to the Gillott 290, save for a few key differences. This nib slightly more durable, and will stand up to more pressure without breaking. However, a light touch is still recommended.

Produces exceptional hairlines, and is better suited actual script than the 290. Also great for touching up work created by larger pens. 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

    I really want to love this nib, but it’s just so fragile. I purchased one from a hobby store and damaged it just cleaning it before use. The tines are very fine and super flimsy—like paper. But you can get some amazing hairlines out of it if you have the right touch and patience. Maybe not the best for heavy-handers, such as myself.
