I’ve been experimenting with Chinese and Japanese bent-nib calligraphy pens, which make very brush-like marks. You can spend a little or a lot, as usual…this …
An internet search on Hero Bent Nib Calligraphy pens turned up lots of photos of people who own them but I can't anyone who sells them. Can you help me with suggestions where one can buy them? Jet Pens doesn't carry them.
I found mine on eBay! It's probably best to spend a little more…the $6 ones tend to be a little scratchy. Good luck!
I've been looking all over for this pen since I saw the video. I can't find them. Where do out get one?
I found mine on eBay, give it a try.
Hi Cathy! Great review on the Hero. Have you tried using the nib upside-down? You can get a fine line that way. Btw, hope you don't mind if I use your video in my blog post about the Hero pen 🙂
Oooh, no, I haven't tried it that way! Very upright, but not upside down…I'll do it! And of course I don't mind if you use it, that's why I post public videos, to share!
I think ISellPens handles them too, by the way!
Hero is a Chinese company.
Thank you for the video. I have been interested in trying a bent nib calligraphy fountain pen for a while, but wasn't sure about it's use. My books only define, or mention them, but don't give instructions or examples. Thank you for doing both! I plan to purchase on from Amazon, which offers them in a range of prices. Overall, I have been so impressed by the quality and written product of some inexpensive fountain pens. I have a couple of the Lamy Safari calligraphy fountain pens, and keep one clipped on me so that I have it to use at all times. There is a real difference between writing with a ball point, roller ball, and felt tip pens compared to fountain pens. Writing with calligraphy or plain fountain pens feel more like painting letters than writing them. And so, it feels like simple writing is more artistic than utilitarian. Thanks again!
You can get rid of the scratchiness by writing an infinity sign on an Emory board. Also write diagonal lines from left to right and right to left and side to side and up and down, until it writes smoothly. The Fountain Pen Revolution channel has a good video on smoothing the nib of a fountain pen.
