William Mitchell Calligraphy : Joseph Gillot Artist Selection Dip Pen Box Set


Low Stock

RRP £11.99

Price £11.40

The Joseph Gillott range of drawing and mapping nibs are ideal for sketching, drawing and Copperplate. This box set of 11 nibs includes one Mapping and one Drawing pen holder and a magnet.

William Mitchell nib points have a protective lacquer to prevent tarnishing. Briefly immerse the full pen point in boiling water before first use to remove.

The selection boxes cleverly include a small magnet for lifting the nibs out of the storage sections without having to tip all the nibs out.

Mapping pens differ from other dip pens in size and shape. The nibs are extra fine for delicate, accurate lines. Because the base of the nib is a small tube it will not fit in a standard dip pen handle, it needs a mapping pen holder.

Review by Feefo
The pens seem scratchy and catch the paper. The ink didn't flow well from them and needed to be re dipped often, even when there was plenty of ink on the nib. I will try them with better quality paper ,perhaps that will result in a smoother line. The nibs were not a great fit for the pen. (Posted on 03/09/2015)
