This is my first foray into the use of dip pens and nibs. This Brause nib holder is interesting, feels comfortable to grip and use, and I wasn't able to get one of the nibs I had into the other holders; this nib holder worked great for that. It is a simple design and feels good to hold.
I am a huge fan of this holder. It is light, a nice thickness, and helps me immensely with maintaining the proper pen angle.(I'm a lefthander using standard materials and turning the paper 90 degrees to write vertically)This holder was also a bit at a recent Scribal Retreat with calligraphers of various levels and techniques.
