Reliable set. Quality nibs.
from Winchester, VA
Comments about Speedball Sketching Project Set:
Nice set. Did a swatch sheet on Bristol Vellum with various lines of hatching, crosshatching, stippling, scribbling, etc. They show their characteristics well and are the same quality product of my student years. This particular set does what you would want for a pen & ink artist drawing set. I later purchased, judging by my swatch sheet effects, extra 102 (crow quill) & 107 hawk quill) nibs along with extra holders. This allows for ongoing work as some soak in the Speedball pen cleaner. The 56 "student" is a good way to begin as it is easy to control. The 108 flexible requires diligence but produces a line of varying thickness which can be quite nice but takes more practice than the others in holding and gliding across the surface. The Bristol smooth might be a better choice for practice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm really glad I bought this set.
I've started using this for my sketching as well as writing letters.
I wanted to get into calligraphy so I bought this set. With the set I had previously the nib holder did not work properly. I am glad to of found this one. So far it works well too! It's a good value for a beginner as well.

I love them!

PERFECT for sketching!My aunt thought they were thin for calligraphy- I pointed out that they are for sketching...she thinks that it is simpler to use a .oo1 or a .005 ball point pen. She had me try some of hers to illustrate the point. I still preferred the dip pen!
For an raso start.

I am starting in drawing with ink and pen, with this set of pens I don't have to invest a lot of money to get a good quality product.
