The Brause "Ziechenfedern" Extra Fine Nib is also commonly called the Arrow for its smooth feel, very high elasticity, and high ink capacity. The extra fine tip and highly elastic nib make it a favorite among calligraphers and ideal for small size copperplate calligraphy.
Please note, this nib is extra skinny, with a tight curvature and will only fit with universal nib holders, or nib holders made for this small size nib.
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.
