Nibs guide

The heart of every SCRIBO fountain pen is the nib and we do it in gold; every nib is assembled together with ebonite feeders only, to get the best available handwriting performance; our nibs, in either the classic 18-carat alloy or the special Extra-Flexible 14-carat alloy, grant elasticity, mechanical memory and softness that highlights every fountain pen writing quality.

In particular, SCRIBO Extra-Flexible nib, a real jewel for handwriting, reached the highest hand-writing performance thanks to the continuous technical improvements that have been made during our previous experience.

Our Extra Fine nib, with a line width of around 0.3 / 0.4 mm, is perfect for those who love extremely thin and rigorous writing.
Our Extra Fine nib, with a line width of around 0.5 / 0.6 mm, is suitable for those who love a very thin and precise writing.
For those who prefer a thin and strong writing, our Fine nib is the most suitable choice, with its line width of around 0.7 / 0.8 mm.
Our Medium nib, with a line width of around 0.9 / 1.0 mm, is perfect for those who love medium-sized writing with a strong and precise flow.
Our Broad nib, with a line width of about 1.1 / 1.2 mm, offers a fluid and abundant writing, ideal if you prefer a thicker writing.
Our special triple B nib, with a line width of about 1.6 / 1.7 mm, is very generous with ink and capable of leaving a well-marked and visible mark.
Our special Stub nib has a very wide tip and the bottom is cut into a cylinder section. It shows a considerable variation in the line width thickness between the vertical writing, of about 1.4 / 1.5 mm, and the horizontal one of about of 0.4 / 0.5 mm.
This special nib is cut at 52 degree on the tip to offer a wide, soft and precise writing surface. When used with the 52° inclination, the nib offers incredible uniformity in writing width, similar to a Broad. The more the nib is raised to the vertical, the finer the writing width becomes.
Our Extra Fine Flex nib offers an excellent variety of writing widths: from 0.5/0.6 mm at closed tips, up to 1.8 mm at open tips.
The line variation of our Flex Fine nib starts from 0.7/0.8 mm at closed tips and reach 2.0 mm at open tips.

Description

LA DOTTA Ai Colli

Imagine a small medieval town brimming with students coming from all over Europe. They came to listen to the most enlightening minds of the time talking about brand new theories and ideas.

Imagine copies and copies of manuscripts copied countless times and then eagerly exchanged. Imagine the profile of this city changing, becoming more and more vibrant and full of experiences and people.

This city, our city, is Bologna.

Thanks to those illuminated minds, and to the expert hands that copied the texts that made them flourish, Bologna became the place where the first university in the Western world was born. Since then, the city will be called “La Dotta” (the Learned), a center of cultural excellence that still attracts students from all over the world who continue, generation after generation, to live the city and to bring it to life.

For this reason, for centuries, Bologna has been an open and welcoming place. A place that goes through you with its illustrious history and that, at the same time, allows itself to be easily traversed. Its famous porticoes are a symbol of this characteristic: they are passages that protect your way through the city, leading you to its significant spots.

We have chosen two of them to pay homage to Bologna “La Dotta” – its historical and cultural prominence – in our own way, carrying on with our productions its ancient tradition of handwriting.

Ai Colli, with its mother-of-pearl green, tells us about the beautiful landscape of the hills surrounding Bologna from the south, reminding us of their gentle lines and their bright green emerging behind the red of the city roofs.
