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.
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 Impressione

Rapid brush strokes capturing the instant in which the warm sunlight reflects on the water; agile pen movements anchoring on the paper; thoughts lingering on ideas and sensations volatile as well as meaningful – these are Levante and Impressione.

Levante and Impressione, the new colours of our PIUMA collection, remind us of the beautiful orange sunlight reflecting on the rippled water of Le Havre harbour, captured at dawn by Claude Monet on a morning in 1872.

This masterpiece, entitled “Impression, Soleil Levant” became the manifesto of Impressionism, an art movement able to ensure the changing qualities of a visual scene through the use of quick brush strokes on the canvas, in this way transforming and elevating the momentary into immortal artwork.

We take inspiration from this suggestive painting and its vibrant colours to represent the agile and quick handwriting style embodied by our collection. A writing style able to ensure fleeting – perhaps unfinished – thoughts on the paper through the smooth, rapid succession of ink lines that, exactly like the paint skilfully applied by the Impressionists, are able to seize the creativity and spontaneity of the moment.
