For more than 100 years, Brause Calligraphy Nibs have been considered by many calligraphers to be among the best on the market.
Offering a subtle balance between relative elasticity for easier writing, and the resistance necessary for clear strokes, Brause Nibs are manufactured from cold rolled steel and pressed with tools specific to each model and nib size. The most delicate part of the manufacturing process involves cutting a slit down the middle of the nib, enabling the ink to flow correctly and freely from the reservoir to the tip of the nib.
Brause offers a range of nibs for every style of writing.
