The 404 is a popular nib among calligraphers because it delivers fine line quality without being too fragile. It has a fairly stiff nib, suitable for writing small x-heights on smooth as well as textured surfaces. This is a good choice for beginners. Because it is stiff, it requires a heavier hand and more pressure to create the swells, making it easier to control. It has a thicker hairline than others, making it a good choice for work for reproduction. As with the 170, it can be used for Spencerian script.
