The Hunt 22 is one of our best-selling nibs for both beginners and seasoned calligraphers. This pointed nib is very similar to the Gillott 303 except for a couple key differences. Although the 22 has an excellent range of flexibility, it is slightly stiffer than the 303 and requires more pressure to create thick swells. Both nibs are very sharp and produce elegant hairlines, but the Hunt 22 isn't quite as sharp and can handle textured papers, such as Arches hot press, much easier.

These dependable nibs are excellent for Copperplate and suitable for Spencerian as well.
Vintage Hunt 22 nibs are also available, and are desired by some users who find them slightly more rigid. They can be found here.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler

For more information about the performance of this nib, including tips for best use, comparative charts, and example artwork, read our blog post with Schin Loong from @openinkstand.

Love practicing Copperplate with this nib. Just as good as Leonardt EF, but a little easier for beginners like myself in my opinion.

I reach for this nib really often, is great for hairlines, it took me a minute to get use to it after nikko g and blue pumpkin but I do enjoy this nib a lot

I reach for the Hunt 22b nib often because it's reliable - I rarely encounter a defect or misaligned nibs. Works well for Spencerian and is my go-to for difficult papers.
My favorite nib so far

Writes so smoothly and easily. It does catch on textured paper some times but not so bad. I love this nib.
