These slightly unusually shaped pens have plastic body with screw on cap and steel nibs.
Each pen comes with standard short international cartridge.
Nibs of these pens have been ground to make them suitable for right-handed Arabic calligraphers and to ensure really crisp and sharp lines compromising slightly on the smoothness of the glide. The glide can be improved by using low porosity paper and by polishing and fine-tuning the nib using fine sanding paper (included with the order).
We do not recommend these pens if you are rather heavy handed as you will find them scratching the paper.
The set contains pens in 4 sizes:
The small nib sizes make this set particularly suitable for smaller scripts like Naskh.
You may find traces of ink on the pen nib or cartridge already fitted as each nib was tested during grinding process.
