My Favorite Things: Vintage Nibs

Hunt #21 Companion Round Point Vintage Nibs

I found this box of vintage nibs in an antique shop in Minocqua, Wisconsin when we were on vacation this summer.  A whole box of nibs in perfect condition!  One-half gross!  For twenty dollars!

I didn't know if I'd like using the nibs (I am a Brause EF66 girl, myself) but I fell in love with the old box and the whole idea of vintage nibs so I had to have them.  And the best thing is that I love these nibs!  They aren't as flexible as the EF66 but so far, the box has got it right; they don't spurt or scratch.  The hairlines are super thin.  The shades aren't as thick as the Brause, but they're perfect for tiny little placecards and small applications.
