The Brause "Zeichenfedern" Medium Soft Nib is a quite hard nib with a fine tip. The quite hard elasticity and thinner, small shape makes it ideal for writing and drawing. This nib is great for those who have smaller handwriting, enjoy maintaining a fine line thickness, but want the ability to create some line variation when heavier pressure is applied.
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.
