If you enjoy drawing with a Gillott 303 nib, this is the pen for you.
Artists enjoy the Gillott 303 nib because it is flexible and provides a wide range of line widths. The Gillott 303 nib has been in continuous use by artists for almost 200 years.
The Gillott 303 nib is especially suited for our Pump Pen. The fit and finish of Gillott 303 nibs is not very good, so it is difficult to get a good match of nib to feed, especially in a pen where you replace the nib by sliding it in and out. In this situation, pressing the pump helps keep the flow running even with an imperfect nib.
Be sure to read Preparing dip nibs for use in our pens if you are unfamiliar with Gillott nibs. The quality of these nibs varies widely.
You can add five Gillott 303 nibs to your order.
You can use the Gillott 404 nib in this pen, which is identical in shape and size to the Gillott 303 only stiffer, since it is meant for writing and not drawing.
