H105. Cork Tip Holder
H105. Cork Grip Holder.

These holders are very similar to the popular Koh-I-Noor 127 N cork-tip penholder (H38) and the General Pencil version (H99) that we also sell. (Other than the logo, I can't see any difference between those and this lower-priced version.) Scribes like the comfortable cushion of the cork, and the grip is thicker than standard wood penholders. Many calligraphers find this kind of holder a pleasure to use. Standard metal nib gripper. From Germany.

Choose from three finishes: Natural, Brown, Black.

Price break at 3.

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
6.0 oz (180ml)
