The Hunt 512 is a large, stiff, bowl-shaped nib with an extra-fine point and moderate flex. Can produce decent hairlines but not much line variation. Great for ruling and modern calligraphy styles, as well as for use on textured papers. This nib is an excellent choice for beginner calligraphers.
The 512 may not fit in most straight holders; we recommend the Speedball Straight Holder or one of our adjustable oblique holders.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler
