The Hunt 56 is very similar to the Gillott 404 in stiffness and durability. A lot of pressure is needed to create big swells, and it can produce decent hairlines. Performs well on both smooth and textured papers. Calligraphers of all skill levels will enjoy this nib, but it is especially good for beginners.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler
