The Pilot Parallel calligraphy pen is a great tool for beginning and experienced calligraphers alike. Its unique nib has parallel metal plates that allow ink to flow out smoothly, and the nib comes in a variety of widths for different writing styles. The Parallel pen also allows for color blending and mixing: just touch the nibs of two different Parallel pens together, and their inks will flow into each other, allowing you to create beautiful color gradations as you write.
Staff pick! Jean says: "These pens make it so convenient to practice calligraphy. I often don't have time to set up dip pens and bottled inks; with the Parallel, I just twist the cap and start writing. The mixable colors are also great. Randomly mixing inks can damage pens, so having cartridges that are safe takes the guesswork out of it."
