H89. Tachikawa T40 (Multi) Pen Holder This holder from Japanese company Tachikawa is a high-quality, lightweight wood. The holder has a rubber finger grip and uses the plastic collar system to hold the nibs. It will hold the following broad edge nibs: Mitchell, Speedball, Tape, Tachikawa. It will not hold Brause nibs; they are too loose.
One neat feature: this holder has a plastic cap to fit over the nib (and the cap can be posted while you are using the holder!). That way, you can leave the nib in the pen and not worry that it will get damaged.
Total length (excluding cap) is 5.75 inches, width is about 1/2 inch thick.
The Ornamental Wood Holder has intricate ornamental turnings inspired by those on the Century Penholders. Color of holder varies.
The Tapered Wood Holder has a finely tapered classic shape. All Tapered are the same dark brown/black color.
The Ebony Wood Holder has the same design as the Ornamental version but is made out of a very dark (almost black) African hardwood. This version is slightly heavier than the other versions.
The Zanerian Wood Holder is made using the same wood (and colors) as the Ornamental version. The Zanerian design is a very slim shaft with a small finial on the tip.
Each style has the standard brass flange (fitted for the Nikko G nib) and overall length of 6.5-6.75".
