custom copper - oblique nib holder

custom copper - oblique nib holder

from 145.00

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.

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 (£15 added at checkout).

Choose your nib preferences after adding to your basket.

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 dampening and using a little dish soap on the supplied polishing cloth and buffing until super shiny again!
