#100 Artist: Perfect for writing at x-heights of 1/8" or less, this highly flexible and delicate nib is best for use on smooth papers. Measurements: 21.5mm long x 4mm wide

The #100 is very similar to the Hunt 103, except for a few minor differences. Both nibs have very fine points and are delicate, requiring a light touch for adequate control. However, both nibs are surprisingly resilient for their small size. The 100 is less flexible than the 103 and a bit smaller.
