SET83 Leonardo Goose Pen is a calligraphy set dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci, bronze pen depicting the face and famous signature of the quintessential Italian artist.

Leonardo goose pen with hand-chiseled bronze grip and calligraphic nib made entirely by hand by our craftsmen.

Leonardo’s signature, the only one known so far, is that of the contract commissioning Leonardo da Vinci to make the Virgin of the Rocks.

Deed notarized by notary Antonio de Capitani. A very rare document, precisely because the artist was not in the habit of signing his works.

Preserved in the State Archives in Milan, the contract of the Virgin of the Rocks shows Leonardo’s signature to the public.

The signature also testifies to Leonardo’s habit of writing from right to left, as in the Arabic and Semitic worlds, and represents the most famous case of mirror handwriting.

One of the special features of the calligraphy nib is its flexibility; thanks to its shape and slit, it allows for varying pressure on the page.

In the descending, downward strokes, the nib widens, thus producing the chiaroscuro effect typical of handwriting.

To learn about nibs, we divide them into three categories according to their specific use. We start with the fine-pointed nib for basic writing.

The particular feature of this nib is the flexibility given by the shape and slit.

This allows with the variation of pressure on the paper in the downstroke to obtain the particular characteristic of light and dark especially in English cursive.

In the truncated nib, the characteristic feature of this nib is the tip cut crosswise as used to cut the quill.

Various sizes are found commercially and are used for calligraphy such as round script, ancient Gothic, and modern.
