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 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 BB nib provides a writing line of 1.3/1.4 mm and is an excellent alternative for those who like a broad, steady line.
Our special triple B nib, with a line width of about 1.7/1.8 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 1.1 mm, and the horizontal one of about of 0.4/0.3 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.
Our Flexible Medium nib, with a writing width of 0.9/1.0 mm at closed tips, reaches 2.2 mm at open tips.
Our Broad Flex nib offers an excellent variety of writing widths: from 1.1/1.2 mm at closed tips, up to 2.5 mm at open tips.

Description

LA DOTTA Orefici

The history of Bologna is also the history of its craftsmen and merchants.

A ceaseless activity was expressed in ancient crafts that have now disappeared, but which, due to their importance, were called ‘Arts’ and were located in clear positions within the city.

Via Orefici and Via Drapperie are precisely two of the oldest and most important streets in Bologna and are located in the historical center of the city, a few steps from Piazza Maggiore.

Via Orefici was the street of jewelers, while Via Drapperie was the street of cloth merchants. Both streets were built in the Middle Ages and were important commercial centers for centuries.

Via Orefici was originally called ‘Via degli Orefici’ because this was where the goldsmiths’ workshops were located. The street was already important in the 12th century, when it was mentioned in a document from 1113. Over the centuries, Via Orefici became one of the most important streets in Bologna for buying jewellery.

Via Drapperie was originally called ‘Via delle Drapperie’ because this was where the cloth merchants’ workshops were located. The street was already important in the 12th century, when it was mentioned in a document from 1119. Over the centuries, Via Drapperie became one of the most important streets in Bologna for buying textiles.

Both streets have been important commercial centres for centuries and have contributed to making Bologna one of the richest and most prosperous cities in Italy. Today, Via Orefici and Via Drapperie are still lively and bustling streets, attracting visitors from all over the world.

In addition to their historical and commercial significance, Via Orefici and Via Drapperie are also important for their architecture. Both streets are lined with medieval and Renaissance buildings, which create a charming and romantic atmosphere.

Via Orefici and Via Drapperie are two of the most fascinating streets in Bologna. They are must-visits for anyone who wants to learn about the history and culture of the city.
