Brause Rose Nib
The Brause Rose nib is a beautiful high-flex nib that features an embossed rose design. Note that this nib has got some quirks, so it’s not for the faint of heart! (Learn more about the Brause Rose in this article.) Here’s the lowdown on this nib:
- The Brause Rose has pretty amazing stroke contrast! The high-flex tines can spread far apart to make sumptuous downstrokes.
- I find that this nib works best with fairly thin inks. Iron gall is a good choice. If you want to use it with a thick ink, try diluting the ink with a little more water than you normally would.
- Don’t be discouraged if this nib doesn’t play nice with you at first. After some time and experimentation, you just might fall in love!
Don’t forget to prepare your new nibs for writing once you receive them! Find instructions over how to do that in this article.
