This steel italic nib comes with an ink reservoir which will allow the nib to hold about three times more ink, depending on the type of ink. The ink reservoir allows you to write two to three times longer before having to re-dip your pen. The reservoir slides off the nib for easy cleaning.
These italic nibs come in five sizes from 0.5mm to 3mm and the larger the width, the wider the line and the greater the variation between the thinnest and widest lines it can produce. For example the 3mm nib can draw lines from 0.3mm to 3mm wide. These are not as flexible as the pointed dip pen nibs but some slight pressure will separate the tines slightly allowing even wider lines and greater line variation.
Fits all of our dip pens. To replace nib, simply pull out old nib and push the new in.
Please Note: These nibs have a sealant on them to prevent tarnishing and need to be washed in warm water with a bit of detergent before use. Otherwise they won't draw up or hold the ink.
Dimensions: 35mm long.
