Item #: nikkog
Our Price: $1.55

We can't recommend the Nikko G enough, especially for beginner calligraphers. These chrome-plated nibs have a perfect medium flex, making them forgiving and easy to use, while still producing a great balance of fine hairlines and thick swells.

The Nikko G is exceptionally smooth and will not snag or jump, holds a lot of ink, and is remarkably long-lasting. All of these qualities combined make this pointed nib user-friendly and encourage novice lettering artists to keep practicing.

Fits best into adjustable oblique holders such as our adjustable oblique holders. Suitable for Copperplate, Spencerian, and drawing. Recommended by Michael Sull. Also available with ink cage.
This nib is included in our Copperplate Sampler

Measurements: 36mm long x 5.5mm wide

Discounts are as follows: $16.92/12, $48.00/36, $172.80/144

When this nib first came out, and was getting a ton of praise, I ignored all of the reviews because I felt like these were being marketed to people who did not understand the script, and needed a forgiving nib. To be fair, this nib does feel extremely forgiving, but it's not a fix-all for bad habits. An expert penman will get just as much out of this as an inexperienced amateur who is new to calligraphy.

This is one of the nibs I use the most, particularly when drawing because it is so easy to control. Definitely recommend for beginners.

Excellent for serious beginners

Came recommended by many. I tried it and it holds up. Just like every other nib you got to take care of them. If you are really serious about learning pointed calligraphy, definitely start here. Suggest to buy a set of 6-12 to start you off cause you may go through some as you learn so rather than going back and forth with ordering and shipping.
