H61. Blackwell Plastic Handle Oblique
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.)
