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 Lieve – Grigio SCRIBO

A new collection, same passion, same writing experience.

A feather, something delicate and light. In his “Six Memos for the Next Millennium” (1988) the Italian writer Italo Calvino talks about the virtue of lightness as something that is associated “with precision and determination, not with vagueness and the haphazard”. In explaining that we shouldn’t misunderstand lightness for superficiality, Calvino quotes the French poet Paul Valéry, who once wrote: “One should be light like a bird, and not like a feather”. While the bird flies unhindered toward an established destination, the feather seems to be floating unwittingly, with no apparent direction.

We cannot, however, always be like the bird, as the destination to go is not known to us all the time. But we can be inspired by the feather that, while floating lightly, defies gravity with its elegant, unpredictable paths in the air. Cherishing lightness means being able to detach from what keeps us anchored and static in the present moment and embrace in this way new, unforeseeable possibilities. We might not know where they will take us, just as it is not possible to predict where the feather will fall, but the lightness it represents suggests we look with hope and imagination toward a better world, a possible utopia.

In our project, the feather becomes once again a writing tool able to channel our thoughts and turns into a symbol of the capacity of pursuing a goal with determination and reason, treasuring, at the same time, the beauty of the unexpected with lightness and creativity.
