British based William Mitchell Calligraphy has been designing and manufacting exceptional pens for almost 200 years. Renowned worldwide for their quality, our pens are the first choice for professional calligraphers, scribes and aspiring students. William Mitchell?s Italic Pens are a chisel point nib ideally suited for Italic handwriting and other calligraphy styles, such as Gothic and Uncial is a slightly firmer nib then our Round Hand. Available in five sizes, they allow a full, even flow of ink when used with the Mitchell Slippon Reservoir. Attach the reservoir beneath the nib: its tip touching the tines and making light contact with the pen. William Mitchell nib points have a protective lacquer to prevent tarnishing. Briefly immerse the full pen point in boiling water before first use to remove. Washing your pen in lukewarm water after each use, then drying it gently with paper tissue, will maintain its optimum performance.
