Not many calligraphic pen sets can pull off a combination of a futuristic design and an old-school style of performance like the Cross Sheaffer. That’s why this eight piece Cross Sheaffer calligraphy kit is such refreshment on the market.
The first thing we noticed is that it is much shorter than the usual pen, allowing you to carry it in your pocket, which is a big advantage when you have lots of equipment. When it comes to lines, it has very distinct curves that sometimes even look like a product of CGI.
The nibs are interchangeable and their use is very obvious. With one each for contours, colouring and shadowing actions, you can be safe to say that this is maybe a complete set on this list.
Calligraphy is all about sophisticated shapes and pieces, and some customers even compared the design of this pen to a device from a James Bond movie. We can’t disagree with that gentleman and have no other choice but to point out that an investment like this can make all the difference between a masterpiece and a failed product.
