Speedball® Steel Brushes & Scratch Knives
Representing an over century-long tradition for fine pen-making that began in 1899.
Utilizing the same historically proven processes specifically catered to each individual nib’s design, Speedball takes painstaking measures to ensure that each of our nibs meets even the most discerning standards. In addition to the highly-trained team that is responsible for making your Speedball nib, we have a dedicated member of our Speedball family that hand-inspects all nibs, one by one, that passes through production. That way, our valued artists never have to worry about their writing experience ahead when using a trusted Speedball nib.
Speedball’s Steel Brushes are flexible pen nibs that stroke like brushes. Suitable for use with any water-based medium and in straight holders, Speedball Steel Brushes are ideally-suited to create large calligraphy and lettering on signs and posters—the largest nib (3/4” Steel Brush) being able to create letters more than 7” high!
Featuring precision-ground points, the Speedball #112 and #113 Scratch Knives are perfect for professional scratch board work.
