Pointed pen nibs come in many varieties, and it’s often a bit difficult to choose between them. Today you’ll get a demonstration of my most favorite nibs and what I like to use them for.

I cover the following nibs:

  • Nikko G
  • Zebra G
  • Brause Steno/361
  • Brause EF 66
  • Brause Rose
  • Hiro Leonardt 6H
  • Hunt Imperial

I also share a few tips for handling the different nibs.
