Parallel Pen Calligraphy Pen Set (6.0mm)
Capture the art and charm of beautiful handwriting with a very cherished and unique form of expression, calligraphy. A major breakthrough in calligraphy pen design, Pilot's Parallel Pens feature a nib that consists of two parallel plates allowing the experienced or novice writer to produce crisp, smooth flowing lines. If it's too difficult to choose just one ink color, gently blend the ink of two Parallel Pen nibs together to create mixable inks with remarkable color effects. Load two pens, each with a different but compatible color of cartridge. Hold one pen vertically and touch the second pen to the first pen for a few seconds. Begin to write with the first pen and delight in the blending of the two colors. Each set comes with a Parallel Pen, one black and one red ink cartridge, a converter to properly flush the pen, nib cleaner and use & care guide. Parallel Pens are available in four nib widths, each packaged separately: 1.5mm, 2.4mm, 3.8mm and 6.0mm.
If you are into calligraphy and have graduated from the markers, it’s time to try a good calligraphy pen with an ink cartridge. This can be a bit intimidating. Parallel Pens, however, make it soooo easy! The plastic barrel feels nice in your hand. The nib has a bit of spring to it, and this is not something you will have to change. Simply unscrew the barrel to insert the ink cartridge. A cool trick is to have 2 pens and touch the nibs together in a certain way, creating an ombre transition to your writing! Each set includes a pen, cap, 2 color inks, and a tool (pipette) for cleaning out the pen before changing colors. I like how this inexpensive pen lets you transition from markers to metal nibs in an easy and inexpensive way. Perfect for students! Clear instructions are included and show all the moving parts, plus an alphabet you can imitate. Purchase ink refills and practice freely, plus you can play with mixing colors on your pages! ~Sara
