• C6 Nib

The third addition to the Speedball series of pen nibs, the C-Series, was introduced in 1918 in the 4th edition of The Speedball Textbook.    This series features a traditional broad edge nib with a great degree of flexibility.  Speedball's most popular of the three broad edge offerings, the C-Series nib is meant to be held at a constant angle throughout the creation of any traditional calligraphic alphabet (with minor variations needed, depending upon the lettering style).  This consistent angle gives the lettering artist the desired thick and thin strokes usually associated with broad edge calligraphy, such as Roman gothic, Carolingian, Uncial, Italic, Gothicized Italic, Blackletter or Neuland, accented line drawings, scrolls and scripts. Available in 7 nib widths.
