Quill Nibs



Draw or letter with a nib that's smooth as silk and skates over the paper. Perfect for calligraphy, broad line or broad point lettering, and drawing in large format. 

Our quill nibs emulate a feather quill except our quill nibs are more versatile and durable. Twist and turn the nib for different effects. Put a bit of pressure on the tip to broaden the stroke, then let up the pressure to make a narrow line. The tip springs back to its original shape as soon as you relieve the pressure.

You can trim our quill nibs just like you can shape a feather quill. You can create chisel edges, pointed tips, and everything in between.

You get two nib sticks in each package. You can cut each nib stick to produce four full size nibs, for a total of 16 nibs in this package.

Which size nib?

We provide quill nibs in two sizes:

  • Medium size quill nibs are the same size as geniune feather quills and can provide the same line widths and shapes you can use to draw and letter. 
  • Large size quill nibs give you a larger range of shapes and widths you can use to draw and letter.
All of our pens will hold our quill nibs, except pens that have been configured for overfeeds. A sleeve is provided with medium size quill nibs so they fit securely.
