Oblique nibs offer more subtle line widths and variations than other straight edged or italic style nibs, making this set ideal for creating a variety of Calligraphy styles including Foundational, Italic, Gothic script and Uncial.

While this calligraphy set is perfect for beginners, the nibs and nib holder are of professional artist-grade quality.

This set contains:

• One (1) Wooden Pen Nib holder (stylus) stained walnut brown
• One (1) Nib Tin container - Imprinted with the traditional D. Leonardt & Co. logo from 1860.
• Five (5) Oblique bronze Leonardt Tape calligraphy pen nibs. Four different widths of a #1, #2, # 2 1/2, #3, #4.

Use with some of our calligraphy ink, found in the Ink section of our shop.

About Oblique (Italic) Calligraphy:
Italic nibs have a blunt edge, they are usually used for Gothic, Italic, and squared calligraphy styles. These nibs are not flexible like Copperplate nibs, but can more easily achieve a polished look in Uncial, Italic, Gothic and Foundational Calligraphy styles.

If you are looking to create calligraphy with hard edges that reproduces the look of an old illuminated manuscript, or an old gothic document - these are the nibs for you!

About Manuscript and Leonardt Nibs:
D. Leonardt & Co. was originally founded in Frederick Street, Birmingham by Diedrich Leonardt in 1856, in the area now known as the Jewellery Quarter. The demand for steel pens grew as the result of an increasing need for educational writing materials. Birmingham was in an excellent position to produce these as the area had good resources of iron and steel and a workforce experienced in handling high volumes of small products. (We've included an engraving of the early Leonardt Nib factory.
