The Brause Index Cito Fein Nib is a gold colored, semi-flexible, fine point nib. The medium-soft elasticity of the nib allows for it to be used with a more consistent line weight with light pressure, and wide variation of line weight with heavy pressure. The reservoir inset into the nib gives a wet writing experience and high ink capacity. This nib is good for print and cursive script, as well as those who like less line variation in their calligraphy.
Founded in 1850 by the Brause brothers and Carl Bergfeld, the German company was originally a needle and bike spoke manufacturer. It wasn't until 1895 that Brause settled into their high quality fountain pens and nibs that are still around today. According to Brause, they have developed over 400 different nib types to this day. Some of their most well known nibs are the Arrow - for precise and flexible copperplate calligraphy, the Blue Pumpkin - known for its blue color and high ink capacity, and the Music nib - specially made for music staff creation and ornate lettering.
