#76 Rose Nib
The Brause #76 Rose Nib is an ideal dip pen for calligraphy, since it flexes more than any other nib we've tried. With just a light touch, the Rose Nib quickly goes from hairlines to big swells. Just search YouTube for "brause rose nib" and you'll see lots of videos of calligraphers making beautiful, expressive script with this famous tool. It's best for intermediate or advanced calligraphers, because it can be a little tricky to get it flowing and to control the flexible point. It's manufactured to the highest standards at Brause's factory in Iserlohn, Germany.
Please note: almost all pen nibs, new and vintage, are coated with a varnish that needs to be removed before use. Otherwise the ink won't stick to the nib properly and you'll mess up your paper. To remove the varnish, just dip the pen in ink and wipe it off, then repeat once or twice.
