A very steady and durable nib, the Hunt 101 is a great choice for projects that require larger writing with x-heights above 1/4". It can be used on most paper surfaces, though it can have a tendency to catch on the upstroke when used on a rougher surface. The Hunt 101 requires firm and deliberate pressure to open swells, while its strength and steadiness makes it an ideal selection for student practice.
The nib will have an invisible protective serum on it to keep it from rusting. Please remove this before use, by dipping the nib in hot water and rubbing off the film. Head over to our blog to find out other ways to prepare your nib.
