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.

Gillott 170, Gillott 303, Gillott 404, Gillott 1950

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.

Good flexibility - not too flexible, not too stiff (but stiffer than Gillott 303). Very thin hairlines and good swells. Works for scripts 3/16"-1/16". 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.

N79. Hunt 108 Nib (Crowquill)
N79. Hunt 108

Bronze finish quill pen for cross-hatching, flourishing and
lithography.

"The #108 can produce super fine hairlines, and also nice wide shades with light pressure. It also has a surprisingly large ink holding ability and isn't as scratchy as some other superfine nibs. It works best on very smooth paper. Now that there is an inexpensive oblique holder for the #108 that holds the nib at a lower angle to the writing surface to reduce scratchiness, perhaps more people will try the nib." Dave G., CA


(H67. Hunt #102 Crowquill Holder works for the Hunt 108 as well as the Hunt 102.)

N78. Hunt 103 Nib
N78. Hunt 103 Nib.

The Hunt 103 is a small, flexible, and delicate nib. As it has a tendency to catch on a more textured surface, it is recommended for use on smooth papers and to be handled with an extremely light and sensitive touch. However, this nib is resilient on down strokes springing back into shape if moderate pressure is used. It has a similar feel to the Hunt 100 nib, except that it is larger, more flexible and less fragile than the 100. Suitable for writing at x-heights of 1/8" or less.

Nib evaluation:
"A very nice nib. Can produce some of the very finest hairlines of any modern nib, yet with hardly any scratchiness. Although only modest width shades are possible with this small, rather stiff nib, shades are smooth and pleasing. Fits nicely in the Hunt Oblique Penholder (item H23)."
