I have Brause Rose 76 Nib. What I enjoy best about these nibs is their versatility. Some complain that these nibs are difficult to work with because they are stiff, but I believe they are among the softest. They do not scrape the paper's surface, which is ideal if you are not using thick paper. They do, however, operate best on cardboard and other stiff paper, as do all other calligraphy nibs.
