Calligraphy Writing Sets

Nib Types. General

  • No.1 is an oblique, sometimes used to make a correction for the right handed
  • No. 2 is a reverse oblique, sometimes used to make a correction for the left handed.
  • No. 3 A straight for people who can hold the nib at a constant angle.
  • Standard nib with a rounded pellet for use by everyone.

Oblique slants can also be a feature of a conventional nib with a pellet. Just to confuse the issue even further, we tend to sell a lot of reverse oblique nibs for the left handed because this can often apply more nib surface to the paper. Cursive nibs can also be useful, this is where the nib point is rounded at the edges but the italic effect will be reduced.
