This Speedball calligraphy pen is an ideal choice for beginners and those willing to hone their craft, rather than working on definite and complicated projects. What surprised us first was the addition of two pen holders – a traditional one and an oblique one. The importance of a firm grip can’t be stressed and this pen is no pushover in that category.

A basic plastic body and only one stable nib is all you need when searching for the best calligraphy pen, especially if you’re just making the first contact with this art and its perks. The durable body, an excellent flow of ink and a good-enough precision rate should have you all set for conquering the calligraphy world.

We also loved the convenient pen cleaner and the addition of 50-page notebook with quality, thick paper. Add in the bargain price, for which you can get it, it’s easy to see why Speedball is a favourite amongst artists.
