Manuscript Calligraphy Compendium is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter kit This kit comes with everything you need to get started in calligraphy. Four pens, four nibs and a bunch of inks in different colour, they're all laid out in a lovely tin case. There's a guide book and a pad of practice paper which is good quality. My only concern was that the larger nibs are difficult to get a decent ink flow through them. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong though. I would definitely recommend this set to anyone looking to get into calligraphy, the book gave a number of projects and how to instructions also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An ideal gift Purchased for a gift the pens and inks were nicely presented in a metal box. The quality of the pen barrel, a very lightweight plastic was a little disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great beginners set! This was brought as an introduction to Calligraphy for myself. The product was in a handy box, and contained everything for a beginner, including a variety of coloured inks. The instruction book was helpful and easy to follow. Very pleased with product. I marked as good as opposed to excellent as I would have preferred not to have coloured plastic holders for the spares, but that is just my preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to handle, nice to write with. I was an Art student at Liverpool College of Art, and learned calligraphy writing there, briefly. This set is really good to use, and the related information, is really well written. I definately recommend this product from 'hobbycraft'

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to learn This calligraphy kit is very easy to learn and has very easy instructions to read on how to learn different styles. The only downfall is, is that sometimes the pens are a little scratchy and that the ink stops and starts; also the thickest pen is very difficult to get started. Other than that it is a very good product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed Bought this calligraphy set for my daughter. She's persevering with it but frustrated that the ink often stops flowing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good beginners pack This set has good nibs and a nice variety of ink. The 4 pens means you can have 4 nibs and inks handy. The tin they come in is a nice quality too. Overall, it's a good set however, I was disappointed in the quality of the pen barrels. They seem very cheap, plasticy and unattractive compared to everything else. For the price I did expect better quality pen barrels, but overall I am happy with the set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great calligraphy set I taught my first calligraphy class last week and went online to order some pens. Ideally I wanted a few of the separate pen holders and nibs but these were very difficult to find and ones I did discover were used (not ideal as nibs take on angle of their user) and expensive! In the end I chose some markers and this set - this was the perfect solution as pens wrote very smoothly and nibs were a good thickness for the scale of script lettering I had in mind. The participants - all novices - found them easy to use and all had great finished results. It's given me a newfound interest in doing some more writing myself, I learned to use nib and ink bottles which are lovely but tend to give an uneven finish and are quite tricky to use - these pens were easy to use and gave a smooth perfect finish!
