Calligraphy Nib Exchange

Manuscript assorted display of steel nibs

It is not always possible for retailers to stock all of our left-handed sets or the entire range of Manuscript calligraphy front end sections.

To address this issue and cater for left handed users we offer a calligraphy nib exchange service whereby we will swap the front end sections in the set that you have bought in replace them with left handed equivalents.

Additionally, you can also purchase the individual nib sections directly from Manuscript using the calligraphy nib exchange service leaflet.

What is a Nib Section?

A Nib Section is the front end of a fountain pen, (including the nib). The Ink cartridge is inserted into the nib section then screwed into the pen barrel.

At Manuscript we produce two standard styles of pen- The standard Classic Fountain Pen and the 12 sided Dodec Fountain Pen. Each of the pen models has its own style of nib sections and so it is important to note that when selecting your nib sections that you are aware of which pen model you have.

Standard Classic- Sleek Black Fountain Pen with curved, ergonomic grip. Pen and nib finishes may vary between Steel and Gilt.

Dodec- 12 sided Dodec Fountain Pen. Pen and nib finishes may vary bettween Steel and Gilt.
