This nib from Brause is modeled on a vintage nib design and features a lovely embossed rose on the body. Rose nibs are incredibly flexible but remain strong and dependable nonetheless. This pointed nib's high flex can be difficult to get used to and requires a gentle hand, but once mastered creates dramatic contrasts between hairlines and swells that are hard to reproduce with other G nibs like the Nikko, Zebra, or Tachikawa.

Works best with diluted ink.
This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.
Well-loved by Lindsey Bugbee from The Postmanís Knock.

Wonderful nib for toothy paper & odd surfaces
September 7, 2021
I find myself relying on the Brause Rose whenever I have a tricky paper or thicker ink. It's SUPER flexible, and the tip is rounded so it doesn't easily catch. Takes some practice to get used to, and I like a finer hairline than it provides, but it helped me through a large calligraphy order on Crane Lettra paper, along with several orders of non-traditional surfaces like tile, shell and leather.

Nice nib

The Brause Rose is a nice nib with lots of flex. I was a bit worried about getting it because I've read some differing opinions on it, but I didn't find it too difficult to use and I'm at a beginner-intermediate level.

The right nib for the right person

This is a great nib! Just needs practice to get used to the generous flex, but when once mastered, it will create some of the best downstrokes in calligraphy!
Beautiful design but not happy with the quality
June 13, 2020
Very classic and well known nib from Brause with a beautiful rose design on the body. Looking great on an antique pen holder. So it's a solid 5 stars for the look of this nib. However this nib does not hold as much ink that you will have to dip it very often. It's great for bigger lettering and with a VERY flexible nib. You will need to practice a lot to master this nib. It's not recommended for beginners and those with a heavy hand. It would also require very fine paper to write on with. The nib is smooth I had some problems with it sometimes the tines get caught and makes ink to splash on paper.
