Hunt 512 (Ex Fine) Nib
The Hunt 512 is a firm favourite of mine! A lovely thick stroke but super fine hairline strokes which makes it the perfect nib if you are working with a slightly smaller x-height.
- When you first receive your nib, there may be a fine coating of oil on it which, if not removed, might affect the performance of the nib. To remove, simply wash gently with warm water and washing up liquid (or stab into a potato!)
- After each use, be sure to remove all traces of ink with warm water and dry thoroughly
Your nib should last you multiple uses. Signs that a nib is ready to be replaced includes poor ink flow and thicker-than-usual upstokes.
