High Performance Steel is more like gold today than most nibs you'll find through pen history. 

Solid Gold is softer and the nibs will write a little wetter. We use 14k nibs for our gold choice as we feel this alloy gives the best performance. Our solid gold nibs also get a rhodium plating for a silver color, but the logo is cut in relief, showing the yellow gold in the diamond shape.

All sizes are "Western" and equivalent to most US or German brands.

Stub Italic Gradient (S.I.G.) nibs are tips ground in house at Franklin-Christoph.
Nagahara nibs are not offered for individual sale as the supply is currently too scarce for the demand.
