Founded in 1850, Brause manufactures steel nibs for writing, drawing and calligraphy. Brause nibs can be found in the toolbox of many calligraphers, lettering artists, penmen and illustrators and are considered to be among the best on the market.
The Brause 511 is a high flex nib that produces fine hairlines, small swells, and requires a gentle hand. Very similar to the Brause 513 nib in appearance and performance, save for a few key differences: The 511 is scratchier, and does not glide well on textured paper. The 511 is also more flexible than the 513, making it more suitable for intermediate and advanced calligraphers than beginners.
Excellent for drawing, tiny writing, and Spencerian. Suitable for Copperplate.
