Calligraphy is an art form that almost anyone can enjoy. If you’ve said "I don’t have a artistic bone in my body", you may be surprised, that with the right pen in hand, you could have a hidden artistic flare you never knew you had. Recently here at Writer’s Bloc I was able to "play" with some great Calligraphy Pens.
The Pilot Parallel Pen 3.8mm has a wide nib that makes wide, large letters. This pen, as well as the 6.0mm nib Parallel Pen, would work well with projects that call for large lettering. Great for personalizing blank cards or to make signs that need to be easy to read. For smaller lettering, the Parallel Pen also comes in 1.5mm and 2.4mm nib sizes. This pen has an interesting gradation function that allows you to gradually change your writing from one color to another color.
The Pelikan Script Calligraphy Pen with a 1.5mm nib was my favorite because the nib size made what I thought was the just right stroke width for calligraphy writing in my personal letters and cards. The angle and nib is given to making clean calligraphy letters. A must have for the calligraphy writers among us. It is available with 1.0mm and 2.0mm nibs as well.
The Lamy Joy Calligraphy Pen with a 1.1mm nib makes a fine line that is very appealing to those of us who write a little smaller. A great Pen!! It glides smoothly across the paper, almost making writing effortless. This pen makes beautiful writing fun. You can also get this pen with a 1.5mm or 1.9mm nib.
All three of these Calligraphy Pens are well made fountain pens. They feel great in the hand and flow smoothly and evenly. They truly make for unique and stylish lettering that gives individuality to any writing endeavor.
Discover the artist in you and have fun doing it!!
