The Hunt 56 nib is useful for writing larger letters on smooth or textured papers. The nib is a steady and durable one making it a great nib for beginners. The Hunt 56 produces healthy swells of ink when firm and deliberate pressure is applied. Strong hairlines. Comparable to Gillott 404 in stiffness and width of hairlines.
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.
