Great Nib Set
January 13, 2022
I started teaching myself calligraphy on Speedball C nibs and finally decided to branch out and try other wedge-tip nibs to see how they compare. I love Speedball, but the more I used them, the more I found myself noticing little things I didnt enjoy as much about them. For instance: the frequency of clogs and the difficulty in getting ink to flow. I found myself tearing up the surface of my paper more than I wanted, as well as dealing with blots that wasted my precious ink. Nothing to any major degree of problem, but minor annoyances for sure. I wanted to see how other nibs compare and if I really noticed any differences between brands. These nibs are a great improvement! I absolutely love all the sizing options (particularly the many smaller ones) and how they come apart in two separate pieces, making them easier to clean/unclog (truthfully, I am uncertain if that is the actual reason they come apart, but that is definitely something I appreciate that feature for). Ink seems to flow much more smoothly from these nibs, which I believe leads to less frequent need to re-dip. I can also get crisper, finer lines with these and am able to write with the thin sides, rather than just using the wedge all the time. I also bought a set of Brause nibs and found them almost identical to these. Both sets are great and I definitely recommend!
