Principal Classic Pump Pen

Draw, letter and write with the Leonardt Principal nib fitted to our Classic Pump Pen. Principal nibs are finely pointed flexible nibs that last a long time. They are a favorite of calligraphers who spend a lot of time dipping their nibs into ink and drawing letter characters with a wide range of dimensions. Principal nibs are a modern version of the famous Principality nib, which was very popular during the "golden age of fountain pens".
