Enjoy a variety of line widths from fine to broad with a tilt of the nib. Fits most nib holders as well as those from our range. View the compatibility chart. *Nib only — nib holder sold separately.

  • Initial ink flow may be slow due to the protective coating on the nib and will gradually improve with repeat rinsing and ink application.
  • The maximum writing angle is 45 degrees.
  • When removing the nib from the nib holder, gently pull it out while turning to avoid dislodging the nib mount.
  • Strong impact to the precision-made nib may compromise ink flow.
  • To prevent the build-up of dry ink in the grooves, rinse frequently in water during use.
  • To remove stubborn dry ink, gently scrub in water with a soft toothbrush.
  • If using detergent, a pH neutral detergent is recommended. Avoid alkaline detergents as they will damage the surface.
