The brass nib has areas of premature rust from acid cleaning during the production process. This is a cosmetic imperfection and does not affect the writing quality. 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.



Brass will develop a natural character and patina with use. Enjoy your nib’s unique transformation.
The nib offers an exceptionally smooth writing experience that defies expectation. Tilt the pen below 45 degrees to explore an array of line widths — create undulating strokes, or lay the nib flat to paint.



  • 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.
  • Brass will develop a natural patina over time.
