In comparison to other manufacturers, Staedtler may just be a little bit more specialised in calligraphy pens for advanced workers. They do so masterfully, all while making their products easy to use and master. When we opened this 33 piece set, our expectations were entirely met.

Artists, professional and beginner alike, were really surprised with the abundance of cartridges. Twenty of them in total pose an excellent kit for longer hours above the drawing board.

Although the grip is a little bit unnatural, Staedtler makes it up for their famous constant ink flow. During the four hours we’ve tested it, no other calligraphy pen produces fewer smudges or clogs. Alongside the cartridges, you can find five nibs that allow you improvise as much as you want.

What makes Staedtler calligraphy pen one of the best is not merely the pens itself, but the whole kit. Containing a practice pad and a thorough instruction book (both for beginners and savants), all while sitting in a slick metal case – this kit is all you ever wanted from calligraphy equipment.
