The Hunt 101 is one of our most popular nibs for both Copperplate and Spencerian. Super-flexible and very sharp, this nib produces beautiful line variation, from tiny hairlines to super swells. May snag on very rough paper, but can handle some light texture. Durable, long-lasting nib that is not recommended for beginner calligraphers, but is great for practicing once you have some experience.

This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler

Measurements: 32mm long x 5.5mm wide

Discounts are as follows: $16.68/dozen, $180.00/gross

Great nib
January 22, 2021
This is a great nib, a bit more flexible and thin than LP, but performs wonderful. I like both nibs and they combine perfectly for me, I switch nibs as an exercise, this nib is lighter so I practice to keep some balance and manage my heavy hand,

I really love the Hunt 101 and Brause Steno nibs. I shied away from them at first because I read they aren't for beginners, but I had no trouble using either one right away.

Great for Beginners!

My Intro to Copperplate instructor recommended this nib and I love it. It is flexible enough to produce beautiful shades but not too flexible that makes it difficult for a beginner to use. It has also been sturdy enough to last a couple weeks worth of lessons, practice, and homework.

Comparable to Leonardt Principal but wears Down more Quickly
October 24, 2020
This nib is one of my top favorites along with the Leonardt EF Principal and Brause 66EF. It is super flexible and perfect for those of us with a light hand. It was actually the first nib that I learned pointed pen calligraphy with, and I am so glad that it was my first nib instead of the Nikko G, because I learned to have control since the very beginning. My only two complaints are that it catches a lot on fibers and corrodes quickly, especially with iron gall inks. However, with acrylic and India ink as well as HP #32 paper I do not have as many problems with this nib and it easily lasts me about one month with frequent, although not daily, use. I mainly use this nib for copperplate/Engrosser's script and modern calligraphy. It is very similar to the Leonardt EF Principal in terms of flexibility, size, and shape, but I find the Leonardt EF Principal lasts longer and is a tiny bit less flexible than the Hunt 101. I enjoy both equally and would pick whichever one is closet to me at the moment, especially when I want to do ornamental penmanship. They both produce very thin hairlines and thick swells.
