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 1.1 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 Senso

What colour is a song?

What does a word taste like?

These peculiar questions introduce us to a fascinating topic that crosses neurological sciences, as well as art and literature. We are referring to the world of synesthesia. Contrary to the word “anaesthesia”, which means ‘loss of sensation’, the term “synesthesia” comes from the Greek sýn, meaning ‘join’, and aisthánomai, meaning ‘I feel’, referring to the idea of ‘feeling together’.

People with synesthesia can savor a word, see a sound, hear a color, involuntarily and automatically experiencing a blending of the senses that characterizes a rich and dense way of experiencing the world.

The joining of different sensations typical of synesthetic experiences also features arts: the painter Kandinsky, for example, talks about colours and music as intrinsically intertwined. In his “On the Spiritual in Art”, the artist describes his ability of hearing the voices of colours, which he combined together in his paintings to form choirs on the canvas.

Synesthesia also characterizes literature as a figure of speech that enriches descriptions by combining words linked to different senses. We can find an example of it in the poem “Il Bove” by Giosuè Carducci, where the author writes about the “green silence” to describe the quiet, bucolic world he loved so much.

To the shapes and colours of the paintings, able to turn into musical notes, and to the written word, capable of creating dense and sensorial images, we dedicate the colours of our new Senso, Fusione and Sinestesia fountain pens of the PIUMA collection. Their lively, fluctuating colours are embellished with silver intrusion and are created with Diamond Cast, a material made with Alumilite and a combination of real diamond and various pigments.

PIUMA Sinestesia collection is available in 70 pieces in the 3 models Senso, Fusione and Sinestesia, all decorated with platinum trim.
