Calligraphy set Grimani

Before using the Grimani pen, it is essential to learn the rules of the style you want to use, apply them, and become familiar with the calligraphy tools.

Here are the highlights: we can divide nibs into three categories based on their specific use.

The fine-pointed nib is suitable for English calligraphy. 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 special characteristic of light and dark visible especially in italics.

In the truncated nib, its main feature is the tip cut crosswise as was once used to cut the quill pen.

Different types of sizes are commercially available for use in various calligraphies, suitable for round, ancient Gothic, modern Gothic, and Italic writing.

When you first use the nib, you need to heat it with a small flame to burn off the protective varnish.
