A comparison of the various
brand sizes of nibs on the market for calligraphers.
The calligraphy nibs in most popular brands are shown in the chart below, with the actual width in millimetres in the leftmost column.
To the right side is a quick
reference for multiplying nib sizes, to make nib guidelines easier to make
up on a blank sheet. .
# If you find this chart to small on your screen to see clearly, try using the keyboard "Ctrl +" to enlarge the view, and "Ctrl -" to make it smaller.
# The measured sizes are approximate only and serve as guides for the selection of nibs in the kind of size you need for a job.
# Please bear in mind that the brands: Speedball
C and Brause are right oblique tipped, that is where the angle of the nib
is ground down on a slight rightward slant. These nibs suit upright styles
of calligraphy, like Gothic & Uncial/Celtic etc.
# A local Calligraphy group calculated and supplied the line height measurement parts on the right side of this chart, for which we thank them.
