The Hunt 99 is a strikingly high flex nib, needing just the slightest pressure to create dramatic, bold swells. Although the 99 demands a very light touch, this nib can produce bold, beautiful lettering under an expert hand. Performs well on textured papers.

The Hunt 99 is best for modern calligraphy styles or drawing, but it can produce hairlines small enough for Copperplate. Not suitable for Spencerian. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler

Measurements: 27.5mm long x 5mm wide

Discounts are as follows: $13.08/dozen, $144.00/gross

  • Incredibly flexible nib 5

    Posted by Michael P. on Nov 15th 2021

    I'm an artist, specializing in pen and ink and while I use a variety of nibs, the Hunt 99 is my "workhorse" or go-to nib. When it's fresh, it's capable of very fine lines... and is so flexible you can with just a little pressure, get bold, brush-like strokes. For novices it may be too flexible and it takes some getting used to. It's also not recommended if you lean toward having a "heavy hand" in ink work. I first started working in ink using a brush, so developed a light touch that serves me well with the Hunt 99. It is also exceptionally smooth, even when fresh and using it for fine lines - - no skipping or spidery lines, or smooth or even moderately toothed papers. The biggest drawback is, being so flexible, they don't last very long before needing changed. It's nowhere near as durable as the much stiffer and less fine Hunt 56 School Pen, or Hunt 22... Even the Gillott 170 or 303 (these two are probably the closest Gillott equivalents) may be a little more durable, but they're also slightly less flexible and slightly less smooth. I use it with Speedball Super Black ink, on smooth bristol board.
