RECIFE nib secrets
The RECIFE nibs
RECIFE nibs are manufactured to highest traditional standards. This production requires multiple steps and a great deal of know-how. The only link between hand and paper, each RECIFE nib meets demanding standards of flexibility and finish in order to provide the smoothest and most regular writing possible.
RECIFE nibs are available in steel and 18K gold.
They are produced in different sizes – from size 5 to size 7 depending on the pen models they are mounted on – and in different writing widths – fine, medium and wide.
Nibs for calligraphic writing are also available.
