  • Very Fine Hairlines and Perfect for Small, Delicate Writing 5

    Posted by YC on Aug 27th 2020

    I purchased this nib as a smaller alternative to the Hunt 101, as most of the writing I do in Engrosser's script and Spencerian is quite small. When I was a beginner, I received the modern Hunt 103 in an oblique pen pack and found it too dainty and easily breakable, even though I handled the Hunt 101 fairly well. I thought that I would never like a Hunt 103, but after practicing calligraphy for several years, I decided to give it another try and was very excited to see that there was a vintage version. So I threw away my bias of the modern Hunt 103, and purchased the vintage Hunt 103 on a whim and I love it! The nib is very tiny (perhaps slightly smaller than the Brause 66 EF), dainty, super flexible and produces very fine hairlines and delicate swells. It is very durable when used well, but I would recommend not using it when your arms are tired, as using it in the wrong angle or with too much pressure can lead to the tip breaking off. The tip of the nib is so fine, that it is like the end of a hand sewing needle, and can easily catch on fibers, so I only use it on smooth paper. When contrasted with the modern version, the vintage Hunt 103 is more durable and of much better quality. I would not recommend this nib to beginner calligraphers or those with heavy hands, but if you like the Hunt 101 and Leonardt EF Principality, then you will likely love this nib as well.
