The Hunt 99 is a strikingly high flex nib, needing just the slightest pressure to create dramatic, bold swells. Although the 99 demands a very light touch, this nib can produce bold, beautiful lettering under an expert hand. Performs well on textured papers.
The Hunt 99 is best for modern calligraphy styles or drawing, but it can produce hairlines small enough for Copperplate. Not suitable for Spencerian. This nib is ideal for intermediate or advanced level calligraphers and is not recommended for beginners.
