Comments about Staedtler Calligraphy Pen Set:
We set up all 4 pens and 2 of them leak badly. It was the two largest tips. Other then that, it is a nice set, but its pretty frustrating.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My 12 year old was thrilled with the quality of this set, from the different pens, nib sizes and colored ink. She thought it was funny back in the day I didn't have pretty ink colors like these. Your website, prices and service cannot be beat!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've done calligraphy for over 35 years and thought this would be a nice set to try out for an instruction class. NOT! The cartridges leaked and the nibs were terrible. I told my class to never buy this set. Dick Blick sells quality materials. They need to remove this from their stock as it is below their normal standards.

This product has beautiful ink.
By Deborah Novak
The instruction book needs more detail. But once you learn how to do calligraphy it is a beautiful product. Buy a book, and you will appreciate this product. It is my favorite set.

use slow and steady writing
For this to work best use slow and steady movement, when the ink stops, shake the pen up and down and the ink will flow again. Not much variation between thick and thin. This company has excellent mechanical pencils but Sheaffer has better calligraphy pens.
Great Pen Set
from Athens, WV
I haven't used this set alot. It's a very good set for someone like myself that is not a professional in the writing style. But I love playing around with it.
Great pen.... n let me explain
By New to calligraphy
I use this produCT to practice. I love the flow and the different sizes. The only complaint I would have it that several of the ink cartridges were leaking when I opened the container.

you pay for what you get - junk
from Parker, CO
I purchased this set to brush up on my calligraphy. The first barrel of ink I put into the tip, the shaft cracked and ink went everywhere. I used the ink on fine stationary and the ink ran as a result the writing was bad. The ink would stop in mid writing and the only way to get it to start again was to pull the ink barrel out and put it back in.
