What is a fude nib?

The word “fude” comes from the Japanese term meaning “brush.” The Pitt Artist Pen fude nibs earn their name from their resemblance to brush nibs, although they are different. With a shorter nib design, fude nibs allow for a more stable design process compared to brush nibs, with durability that provides a constant flow of India ink. 

Fude nibs allow for razor-sharp lines, avoiding line imperfections. Beginners will enjoy using the new nibs as they are flexible, durable, and easy to control. Both fude nibs are suited for lettering, sketching notes, bullet journaling, and more. We do not recommend using a fude nib for quick sketches as the ink flow will break off in between lines.

The fude medium and fude hard nibs join an already large selection of 12 other Pitt Artist Pen nib sizes. Pitt Artist Pen fude nibs are now available in black in several Pitt Artist Pen wallets including the Pitt Artist Pen Wallet of 4, Pitt Artist Pen Black & Grey Wallet of 8, and Pitt Artist Pen Black Wallet of 8.
