H95. Speedball Deluxe (Comfort Grip) Oblique Pen Holders Blue and Red Oblique Pen Holders.

H96. Adjusted Oblique Plastic Holder with Metal Flange This standard, black plastic, “hourglass” holder with an oblique brass flange is a great improvement over the Speedball Oblique Holder. The flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your up-stokes less likely to catch on the paper and the flange is pre-adjusted for our most popular nibs.
For right-handers, the offset flange allows for the slant of pointed pen scripts without having to severely cant the writing paper. Some left-handed scribes also use an oblique pen holder.
This replaces the Peerless Oblique Holders.
Specify Size: Brause 66EF, Gillott 303, Nikko G or Principal EF.
(Like all similar holders, the flange can be adjusted for additional nib sizes. If you would like holders for a class adjusted for a different nib, let us know and we will add the size to our inventory.)
These less expensive oblique pen holders are pre-adjusted for our most popular pointed nibs. Metal flange, grey plastic handle. Specify Gillott 303, Gillott 404, Brause 66EF, Hunt 101, Nikko G, EF Principal. This holder can be adjusted for virtually any nib. Please let us know the nib you use & we will pick the closest holder.
Black plastic hourglass shape penholder with offset for nib. For copperplate and Spencerian. The offset helps righthanders with the letter slant. Most lefthanders use a straight holder not this oblique holder. However, some use an oblique holder.
These pointed nibs work in this holder: Hunt 22, Hunt 56, Hunt 99, Hunt 100, Hunt 101, Hunt 103, Hunt 104,
Gillott 170, Gillott 303, Gillott 404, Gillott 1950
Hiro 700, Esterbrook 354, Brause Rose Nib.
The Nikko G nib will work okay, but the holder is not ideal for this nib.
Gillott 659 does NOT work with this holder; use H75 (Gillott Holder #51) instead.
The EF Principal does not work in this holder. See H48 Ziller Oblique Holder (Size) PRIN, and both the Blackwell Holders H50, H61
S507. Bent Needle Nose Pliers Small Bent Needle Nose Pliers
Michael Sull selected these small pliers which are ideal for adjusting the flange on an oblique holder. Use them to adjust the curve of the flange to fit the nib you are using, to crimp the two sheets of metal in the curve a bit tighter if necessary, and to adjust the flat part of the flange to reduce the angle of the pen to the paper. They are small enough to fit in your pen pouch or traveling tool kit.
A remarkably simple design that holds most pen points for
Spencerian and copperplate. Finely crafted wood holder with a sturdy brass oblique arm. This penholder is designed to hold the nib at a less steep slant angle for ease of upstrokes. Also available with a plastic holder. Works with crowquill, Brause 66ef and almost all other nibs.
(Works with most all nibs except the very largest vintage nibs. Earlier holders did not work with the crowquill because the screw was too short. You may request a longer screw which fixes the problem. There is no charge for the longer screw if you have an older holder.)
