The Gillott 303 is a pointed nib that is excellent for Copperplate calligraphy. This nib has the perfect flexibility: it's not too stiff or too rubbery, although it performs best under a light hand. The 303 is very sharp and is best used on smooth papers, but can operate on lightly textured surfaces under an expert hand.

Endorsed by Eleanor Winters in Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy along with the Gillott 404. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.

  • Go;;ptt 303 nib 4

    Posted by Sandy on Oct 11th 2023

    I greatly enjoy this mib. It is one of my favorites for variations in fine lines and swells. Not as delicate as the Gillott 170, but a very lovely nib.

  • Great Nib 4

    Posted by Tumble on Feb 9th 2023

    While I don’t have too much practice with Gillott’s, they are predominantly what I own and use. This nib is one of my favorites from my collection. In my opinion, it gives some of the greatest amount of contrast between strokes and provides enough resistance and sturdiness to really dig into some of the thicker ones. It’s definitely not as flimsy as other Gillott nibs, but it’s also a bit more delicate than the 404. It’s a great in-between versatile nib that does almost everything well.
