The little things - New Year New Nibs!

The little things in life that make the difference...

...finally getting around to buying some new nibs for my dip pens. I spotted these on ebay - described as vintage, they were from Hungary and there were 84 nibs in total.

I'd worn my old nibs down so badly from use, that they were looking like this - not good. The nib holders are worn out too - the top one is cork and wood under all that ink.

A new nib and a lovely old tin to store them all. (must get
a better nib holder than this bog standard plastic one).

No excuses not to draw - I may never need another nib -
Happy New Year!
