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.

N90. Brause Steno Nib 361
N90. Brause Blue Pumpkin (Steno 361).

The Brause Steno is also called Brause 361 or the Blue Pumpkin nib, from its rounded shape and blue color. It look likes and basically writes like the Hiro 40 (also called Blue Pumpkin), but the Brause Steno is stiffer, better made, and gives thinner hairlines and is more beginner friendly. Some calligraphers find it also holds more ink than Hiro 40 and that it works better with thicker inks like sumi and not as well with thinner inks like Pelikan 4001. The Brause Steno has moderate flex, and needs but a little pressure for shaded strokes. While suitable for Copperplate, it may be now used more often for Modern Calligraphy. Excluding the "G" pens, Brause Steno nibs last much longer than most other current pointed nibs.

This nib is in the JNB Pointed Nib Samplers (N154 & N117-1).

Quantity prices available at 10 & 50.
