Gillott 404 Calligraphy Nib

A popular nib. Fairly stiff nib, suitable for writing on all surfaces from smooth to textured. Good choice for beginners (or those with a heavy hand.) Because they require more pressure to create the swells, stiffer nibs are easier to control. Thicker hairlines than others, making it a good choice for work for reproduction. 


Remember to rinse the nib under warm water and wipe firmly, but gently to remove the residue of the coating that is applied post production.  The coating is mean to protect the nib during shipping but if not removed, the ink will not stick to the nib.

Also, when inserting the nib using the Manuscript pens - remember to insert the nib in between the outer metal ring of the pen and the prongs.  Do not insert nib directly into the centre of the pen.  It sits very easily between the prongs and metal ring.
