Description The Brause calligraphy dip pen nib is commonly called an Arrow nib, and has a very smooth flex reaction combined with a high elasticity and ink capacity that makes this a favorite for pointed pen work. Brause manufactures steel nibs for writing, drawing and decorating. Brause nibs can be found in the toolbox of many calligraphers, artists, penmen and illustrators. Dip pen nibs are sold separately from a nib holder, which is usually called a dip pen.
