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.
