The Leonardt Principal is a favorite of many calligraphers, including Michael Sull. Extra-fine and very flexible, the Principal produces fine hairlines and healthy swells, and glides across textured surfaces like a dream. Modeled on the rare vintage Principality No. 1, this nib was produced with the expert advice of lettering artists and is a fine choice for many styles: Copperplate, Spencerian, modern calligraphy, and more. Bronze finish. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.
