I'm looking for a math font that has thick strokes and stems like in serif characters (but actually without the serifs) for the \forall (∀) and \exists (∃) quantifiers (I can use OpenType fonts as well).

I noticed that Asana Math has such quantifiers:

But not STIX Two Math for example:

Please forgive me if I didn't name the typographic properties correctly.

Not many, it seems...

I borrowed Mico's file from here

Which LuaLaTeX math fonts have complete symbol set?

and changed the text to include forall and exists, I didn't have one of the fonts so that is commented out but of the remaining ones, only asana, it seems:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\newcommand\blurb{%
   $\forall \land \exists$}
\usepackage{unicode-math}
%% Load 10 math fonts, plus two alternate/stylistic set variants
\setmathfont{Latin Modern Math}[version=LM]
\setmathfont{Stix Math}[version=Stix]
\setmathfont{XITS Math}[version=XITS]
\setmathfont{XITS Math}[StylisticSet=1,version=XITS1]
\setmathfont{Stix Two Math}[version=Stix2] % see http://stixfonts.org/
\setmathfont{Cambria Math}[version=Cambria]
\setmathfont{Asana Math}[version=Asana]
\setmathfont{Asana Math}[Alternate,version=AsanaAlt]
\setmathfont{TeX Gyre Pagella Math}[version=Pagella]
\setmathfont{TeX Gyre Termes Math}[version=Termes]
\setmathfont{TeX Gyre DejaVu Math}[version=DejaVu]
%\setmathfont{Neo Euler}[version=Euler]
\setmathfont{Libertinus Math}[version=Libertinus]

\begin{document}
\renewcommand\arraystretch{1.8}
\begin{tabular}{@{}ll@{}}

  • The “Asana Alt” was based on a code snippet I posted, and only affects the \mathcal and \mathscr alphabets. You might want to show Neo Euler. And it’s generally a good idea to look through the stylistic sets of XITS and STIX Two. – Davislor Jan 24 at 23:08
  • @Davislor I commented out Neo Euler as I appeared not to have it and was in a rush so didn't want to install at the time. I could get it I suppose.... – David Carlisle Jan 24 at 23:14
  • I wish to comment that FreeFont FreeSerif has such quantifiers as well, and other appropriate math characters for typesetting with XeTeX with its latest unreleased version. – David von Tamar Jan 25 at 0:06
  • @DavidCarlisle, I ended up borrowing Asana's symbols by using [range={\forall, \exists}]. – David von Tamar Jan 25 at 0:21
