Description

The Hiro 700 is a small, smooth nib that performs terrifically on textured papers. Although the 700's hairlines are not quite as fine as the Gillott 303 or 170, it is easier to control and considerably more flexible.

Good for Copperplate and Spencerian, but originally designed for drawing. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.

Measurements: 25.5mm long x 4mm wide

Discounts are as follows: $7.92/dozen 36+ $0.59 each

Flexible and Fine Hairlines, but not as Fine as the Hunt 101
August 27, 2020
I purchased this nib to try out new points for Spencerian and ornamental penmanship. It worked well with walnut ink, but performed best with India ink. It lasted about one month with consistent use, until I used iron gall ink. Upon the first use with iron gall ink, it corroded quite quickly, even though the iron gall I used has a lower pH and I always clean my nibs immediately after use. So if you are wondering what inks to use, you can use vegetable (e.g. beet juice), nut-based, and acrylic inks, but might want to avoid iron-gall. The nib created fine hairlines, but not as fine as the Hunt 101, Hunt 103, Leonardt EF Principal, or Brause 66 EF. The swells were thick, but the contrast between the hairlines and swells was not as dramatic as what I could achieve with the aforementioned nibs, so I ended up using the nib for modern and engrosser's script. Overall, it performs well as a practice nib and is like a mixture of a Nikko G with a Hunt 103 (it has the size of the 103, flexibility somewhere in the middle of the two, and the shape of the Nikko G). I would recommend this nib as a good beginner alternative to the Nikko G, as it is flexible, but not quite as flexible as the Hunt 101 or Leonardt EF Principal, but can handle a bit more pressure without breaking. I would definitely include this nib among my favorites, especially on days when my arm is tired and I have a heavy hand.
