Plastic Handle Blackwell Oblique Pen Holder

Black plastic hourglass penholder with the same brass flange for holding the nibs. The brass work is not as finely finished, but is just as functional. Works with small nibs such as the Brause 66ef and almost all other nibs.

A remarkably simple design that holds most pen points for
Spencerian and Copperplate. Designed to hold the nib at a less steep slant angle for ease of upstrokes. Also available with a brass and wood handle.

(Works with most all nibs except the very largest vintage nibs and crowquill nibs.)

N86. Hunt 56 Nib
The Hunt 56 nib is useful for writing larger letters on smooth or textured papers. The nib is a steady and durable one making it a great nib for beginners. The Hunt 56 produces healthy swells of ink when firm and deliberate pressure is applied. Strong hairlines. Comparable to Gillott 404 in stiffness and width of hairlines.

N77. Hunt 101 Nib
Hunt 101.

A very steady and durable nib, the Hunt 101 is a great choice for projects that require larger writing with x-heights above 1/4". It can be used on most paper surfaces, though it can have a tendency to catch on the upstroke when used on a rougher surface. The Hunt 101 requires firm and deliberate pressure to open swells, while its strength and steadiness makes it an ideal selection for student practice.

Sharp point (but not as sharp as the 303), but will work on slightly textured surfaces. Tends to catch on upstrokes. Satisfactory for Spencerian Script.
