How do Gold Nibs Compare to Steel Nibs in Fountain Pens?
In the world of fountain pens, the debate between gold and steel nibs (we mean high-quality steel nibs like JoWo) centers on their writing characteristics and flexibility. While modern steel nibs are highly capable, offering a comparable writing experience to gold nibs in many aspects, there are distinct differences, particularly in terms of flexibility and line variation.
Gold, being a softer metal, naturally provides a more flexible nib. This flexibility allows the tines of the nib to spread more easily under pressure, creating a wider range of line widths as you write. As a result, gold nibs, especially those with higher karat values, are often preferred for their ability to produce varied line thicknesses, adding a unique flair to handwriting or calligraphy.
Specifically, 14k gold nibs are known for offering a moderate level of flex, striking a balance between rigidity and flexibility. On the other hand, 18k gold nibs tend to offer even greater flex, making them a top choice for those seeking maximum line variation and a distinctly softer writing feel. However, it's important to note that the choice between gold and steel nibs often comes down to personal preference and the specific writing style of the individual.
A great nib.. Smooth, wet, flowing, stylish and comfortable. Jowo's golden nibs is a value.
