In order to provide a little insight into how the different nib widths differ in a brand, we’ll be doing small writing samples and add these to the pen pictures in the webshop.
Starting with Kaweco, we took the Kaweco Sport, which has the #5 steel nib, what is used on 99% of Kaweco’s pens. The picture shows the 5 widths that are commonly available, starting with Extra Fine, to Fine, Medium, Broad and Double Broad.
The paper used is a Rhodia pad, the ink is Lamy Blue.
This is to be used as a guideline only. Each nib may be tuned just a bit different and each and and paper combination may perform different,
Please let us know what you think of this extra helper to define your choice of nib on a next pen.
