Blotter by Herbin
Above all, a distinction must be made between Japanese and European/American nibs. For the same line thickness given by the manufacturers, Japanese nibs will be thinner than European/American nibs. Thus, an F nib from Sailor will correspond to an EF nib from Jow.
Stub: a nib with a wider than high point that allows you to make thick vertical strokes and thin horizontal strokes. More commonly known as full and loose.
IT (Italic): it has the same characteristics as the Stub. But its flattened tip and angular ends will provide less flexibility in writing. It is used in calligraphy. However, it is less convenient for everyday writing, as it is advisable not to write too quickly so as not to tear the paper. The “cursive italic” variant will have the edges of its point slightly rounded (not as much as the Stub, however) to avoid this pitfall.
MS (Music): Stub nib with two slots (except for Sailor), the parts of the tip of which open out sharply depending on the pressure applied to allow a greater flow of ink. This increases the fluidity of the writing and makes it more humid. In addition to its extreme flexibility, the vertical strokes are thicker than the horizontal ones. Making it an ideal nib for calligraphy. But also for people who love writing.
