Flexibility and flow is a calligraphers dream.
By Squeak the Calligrapher
from Corvallis, Oregon
I teach calligraphy, when I see a student getting frustrated with the smaller nibs I introduce them to the steel brushes. The amazement on their faces from the quick results they get is awesome. These steel brush nibs are perfect for picture calligraphy too. My students ask me if they can get these brushes, I finally started carrying them in my shop. Thank you Blick!

from Sharon, pa
A great addition to my collection. Mine were almost 40 years old and I needed new ones. I am glad I found them here at dickblick. I use them a lot in drawing and lettering. Thank you they are great.
Steel Brushes are great
I volunteered to donate signs for a school fundraiser, and they were to be written on wood. These had to have a certain "look", and the steel brushes provided the best calligraphy that I have done in a long time.

Finding the right tool
By Belle letters
from Rome, Italy
This edged brush is a proper tool for large posters. Though it works well at getting the thin thins and the strong strokes, it goes best only with the down strokes. Once you adapt to its one dimensional use, you can achieve calligraphic lettering fluidity.

I really preferred coit pens, but it appears they're not made anymore. The speed ball steel brushes do the job. They have a tendency to splatter.

A must have!
from Mogadore, Ohio
If you like calligraphy these are a must have! Pick up and lay down the ink wonderfully, easy to keep clean and last forever. I use mine for more than calligraphy but also for mixed media projects, since I am into colored pencil also. The large nib can lay down areas of interesting color and do not have to be used for lettering all the time. I can't imagine not having these in my art box!!! Great product!! I highly recommend them!
