Custom - oblique nib holder

Custom - oblique nib holder

from 155.00

A tool to be proud of!  I design holders that I hope will inspire you to do your best work.

My oblique nib holder has a great balance in the hand and a lovely reassuring weight to it.  With a precisely fitted brass flange this holder will make your calligraphy feel effortless.

Pair with your choice of Corian®, a beautiful marble like material with the benefit of stain resistance, (so no need to worry about dipping in ink!)

Lovingly crafted by Tom.  I make all of my pens in my studio by the sea, each one is made from solid copper, hand turned, sanded and finished on a 60 year old Myford engineering lathe.

Choose between a flange to fit your favourite nib/s or a bullock flange to fit almost every nib.

(Choose your nib preferences and body shape after adding to your basket.)

Each pen is hand made to order the current lead time approx 6-7 weeks

With a bit of TLC your nib holder should last a very, very long time.  The metal on the holder has been waxed to reduce oxidisation. Over time the metal will age naturally, developing a richer, darker tone. You can choose to embrace this patina or to return it to it’s gleaming best by buffing with supplied polish and cloth cloth until super shiny again!
