The Brause Bandzug Nib is the same nib I used when I started learning Italic Calligraphy Scripts as well as English Half Uncials. This is the nib that my calligraphy teacher back then recommended for us, and it’s still the nib I would recommend for these types of scripts.
Brause Bandzug Nib comes in a variety of sizes, from very broad (5mm) to super tiny (0.5mm).
I mainly focus on more Modern Calligraphy/Lettering, so that is why you probably don’t see me using these nibs a lot – However they are still great for their usage. I highly recommend these nibs if you are looking to do Italic Scripts, Traditional Western Calligraphy or Gothic/Blackletter Scripts.
This is calligraphy I did in approximately 2011 using Brause Bandzug Calligraphy Nib. This calligraphic style is called English Half Uncial.
