Size 8 nibs are our largest size measuring 10.0mm wide. Each nib is engraved with the Onoto name, an exclusive Onoto pattern, and the nib size 8. The latest nibs also have the width (M or B) engraved next to this figure.

The size 8 nibs are available only in:

  • Medium produces approximately a 0.5mm – 0.65mm wide line of ink
  • Broad produces approximately a 0.7mm – 0.9mm wide line of ink

The thickness of the line depends on the pressure exerted on the pen, and the type of paper. As a rule, a broad nib suits large handwriting and flowing signatures. Broad nibs can tend to fill in the spaces in “b”, “d”, “e”, “6” etc if your handwriting is small. A medium nib is a good compromise, and selected by the majority of fountain pen users.
