  • Perfect for numbers and small letters, ink flows very well. 5

    Posted by Valeria on Jul 28th 2022

    At first I was afraid to use it because it is not recommended for beginners, but I have adapted very well to it and I liked it a lot, it is perfect for numbers and small letters. In my opinion it is too similar to Gillot 303 Nib, a little more hard but it is not much difference. I have not tried it on rough paper yet...like cold pressed watercolor paper, but on smooth paper I've loved it, it makes fine and thick lines in a beautiful way, the ink flows very well.

    A good nib, but not one I reach for every day. I want to try and use it more!
