Faber Castell Pitt Pens has released new nibs

What is a Fude Nib? Meet the Pitt Artist Pen’s Newest Nibs

Pitt Artist Pen with fude nib

The Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen collection is known for its versatility and wide variety of nibs, making it a go-to for artists and crafters of all interests. Taking the versatility of the popular artist pens a step further, Pitt Artist Pens are now available in two new nib sizes: fude medium and fude hard.

Pitt Artist Pen Fude Hard nib
Pitt Artist Pen Fude Medium nib

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.



Due to the sales floor changes, there has been some empty brush displays that have come open to be donated to a local artist’s studio. Feel free to come by the store to get a FREE brush display!

A DIY table easel was also donated to the store to be given to a local artist. Feel free to come by the store to inspect and see if it will meet your needs.
