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.
This inexpensive holder serves as both a straight holder and an oblique holder! Just remove the flange to use as a straight holder. The brass oblique flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper. Perfect for workshops and beginners; we are happy to offer this exceptional holder at a very reasonable price.
This holder has the streamline design evocative of the mid-twentieth century. It is thicker than the regular turned wood holders, which is helpful for people with arthritis or joint problems. This penholder is great for those who like their pens a bit heavier.
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.
Beautiful penholders in gold & black, silver & black, gold with multicolors, and the newest: Multicolor (with swirls of red, blue, green, and yellow). Approx 5/16" diameter at the nib end and 6-7/8" long. Standard metal nib gripper.
These short, turned hardwood penholders have a thicker grip. If you or your students have arthritis or joint problems, you may find these thicker pen holders easier to use. Some calligraphers also just like a thicker pen holder. Wood color will vary and there will be some variation in shape. Approx 5" length.
