H114. Turned Wood Oblique Holder
H114. Turned Wood Oblique Holder.

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".

Quantity discount for 12 or more.

H123. Retro-styled Thick Oblique Holder
H123. Retro-styled Thick Oblique Holder.
Approx. 1/2" dia. x 7" long.

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.




Your Price $19.95

H130. Blue Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder
H130. Blue Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder.

This is a comfort-grip, blue plastic, hourglass holder with an oblique brass flange. The flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper, and the flange is pre-adjusted for our most popular nibs.

This holder does not include a nib.

Choose nib adjustment: 66EF (Brause 66EF), 303 (Gillott 303), PRIN (Principal EF), NIKK (Nikko G).

N120. Leonardt Principal EF Nib
N120.EF Principal Nib

You can now purchase a modern nib that is equal to the best of the vintage nibs. Brian Walker, a respected pointed pen enthusiast, has worked with a pen manufacturer to duplicate the quality and performance of the legendary Gillott No 1 Principality. The new nib has received rave reviews for both Copperplate and Spencerian. It’s flexible and responsive and gives fine hairlines, but is smooth-writing and catches the paper less.




Your Price $2.95

N72. Gillott 303 Nib
N72. Gillott 303 Pointed Nib.

A popular nib for Copperplate. Good flexibility - not too stiff, not too flexible. Very thin hairlines and good swells. Works for scripts 3/16-1/16". Sharp point but will work on slightly textured surfaces. Tends to catch on upstrokes.




Your Price $1.19

N113. Nikko G Nib
N113. Nikko G Nib.

These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long-lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull.
