    A Plurality Of Nib Types

    I thought I'd start a topic to show a the working surfaces of a few of my nibs, and to show a bit of the variety of designs that are out there. Montblanc B The Montblanc broads are more of a stub than a pure broad, which makes them very much nicer than the more usual fines and mediums. If you buy a Montblanc, get a B or a BB! Pilot MYU 701 A fine nib from the 70s, it provides a very nice, fine line. 1970s era Pilot Elite F This one is another older Pilot F nib, and is great to write with, if you get the angle right. Pilot Elite 95S F A more modern version of a Pilot F nib. The tipping is a lot longer than the older nib. This nib is smoother over a greater range of writing angle. Pilot SF Another modern version of the Pilot fine. Almost a lozenge shape, these provide a very smooth writing experience. Sailor HF The Sailor fine uses much less tipping, and like the older Pilot, is smooth provided the angle of your pen is right. Sailor Naginata Togi NMF The famous Naginata nib gives broad lines on the cross stroke, and can be used for Japanese calligraphic effects. Sailor Saibi Togi A super-fine nib with the tipping ground to an inverted pyramid, gives a very fine line, but requires a light touch and is somewhat finicky to use. Pre-war SSS The tipping is a bit wonky, but this is a flexible nib, so the spreading of the tines compensates for the tipping. Stipula CI A crisp italic nib grind. Quite sharp edges here, by comparison with the Montblanc, it gives more pronounced variation, but is somewhat finicky about the nib being flat on the page.
