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 513 is a medium flex nib that produces great line variation, from fine hairlines to super swells. Very similar to the Brause 511 nib in appearance and performance, save for a few key differences: The 513 is not as scratchy, making it easier to use on textured papers such as Arches hot press. The 513 is less flexible than the 511, making it more user-friendly for beginners.
Calligraphers of all skill levels will love this nib. Excellent for drawing, tiny writing, Spencerian, and Copperplate.
