Each nib brings calligraphy to life.


Traditional craftsmanship and excellence are the hallmarks of the Brause brand. Each nib is checked by hand before being packaged, to ensure the highest quality products for calligraphers and designers around the world.


Brause has recognised expertise in the manufacture of linocut tools. Linocutting is an engraving technique similar to printmaking. It is practised with a specific material such as linoleum, which is softer to work with than wood. Gouge nibs are used to hollow out the linoleum.
