Steno ("Blue Pumpkin") stub nib


Regular price $1.75 Our Price

The Steno nib is a favorite of customers in our physical store because it's so versatile. Its medium fine point can produce good hairlines, but the high flexibility allows it to quickly transition to broad strokes. It's called the "Blue Pumpkin" by pen enthusiasts because of its bulbous shape when filled with ink—it holds more than almost any nib we sell. Wonderful for calligraphy, drawing, or everyday writing. 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.

Pair this nib with a dip pen holder.
