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

PIUMA Ametista

Three stones in strong, vivid tones adorn the new models in the PIUMA collection.

Handmade by a resin that reproduces the effect of stone, our three new PIUMA colours are inspired by Agate, Amethyst and Carnelian and their symbolism.

Amethyst is a variety of quartz, characterized by the presence of purplish shades. It often originates in sub-alkaline basaltic rocks. Known to man since 3,000 BC, this crystal was mined and venerated in Egypt, South Africa and Mesopotamia.  The name amethyst derives from the Greek “améthystos” meaning “not drunk”, an etymology at the basis of one of the most fascinating myths in history.

Our PIUMA Ametista, also with yellow gold finish, is inspired by one of the longest-lived precious stones, a symbol of the elixir of life.

Handmade in 219 pieces, the new colours of the PIUMA collection Agata, Ametista and Corniola feature a converter/cartridge filling system and are fitted with our 18ct nibs, from size EEF to the new BB and with our 14ct flexible nibs, from size EF to Broad.
