Colores nibs

The fountain pens world is in constant development, it has advanced astronomically since the first fountain pen and we can foresee many more innovations in the near future. One of the incredible developments that has occurred in the last few years are the colored nibs.

Unique nibs

The most commonly seen and general nibs are stainless steel and gold, and the colors are usually silver or gold. Variations can be found in terms of the carat of the nib and in the flexibility of it but not in the color.

However, lately, multiple variations in nib colors have been seen in the market, especially by brands such as Aurora, Twsbi, Conklin y Visconti that have produced nibs of completely different colors.

One of the first innovations in terms of nibs are Bi-color nibs that can be seen in some brands such as Sailor, Namiki, and Taccia. Bi-color nibs are made of solid gold and have a lot of success among the writing enthusiasts. They are known for the strength and flexibility of a gold nib but they have a rhodium part so that you can see the gold and silver colors in the same nib.

From this point on, lots of brands started to innovate the color of their nibs. A brand to highlight is Aurora, as it is one of the brands with the largest number of colored nibs designed exclusively for their models.


One of the first colors they used for their nibs is the famous matte black, but understanding the importance of innovation they continued creating new colors. As a result, Aurora has been one of the fastest growing brands in recent years.

Their Trilobiti collection, inspired by the fossils of marine animals that went extinct around 65 million years ago, presents some new nibs in a variety of colors. These colored nibs provide a unique design to the piece as they allow the color of the body to go down to the nib, resulting in an exquisitely designed fountain pen.

The Trilobiti collection comes with exclusive and highly innovative colors.


Another nib color that has developed an increasing popularity is PINK GOLD, which can be found in various models. This color allows the brand to design models with rose gold details, adding variety to their fountain pens and differentiating them from the gold and silver colors that have been the most commonly seen for many years.
