H129. Dual Use Workshop Holder (Oblique + Straight).
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. Nib sold seperately. You will receive one penholder. - Black plastic staff, brass flange - "Hourglass" style - Penholder is similar to the Speedball Penholder - Two holders in one! - When used as a straight holer, nib grip mechanism is circular slit. Use with broad-edge or pointed calligraphy nibs - Great holder for beginners. Less upstroke catching than plastic-flange holders - Superior design at a low cost. - Popular for Copperplate, Spencerian Script, and Modern Calligraphy

I love the versatility of the holder. It's also convenient to not have to carry around around a bunch of different holders, I'll take a lighter supply bag any day. I so look forward to using this once in person classes start back up!
As a complete newbie to dip pens (and all things related to it) and a left-hander, I purchased this dual pen holder based on the recommendations from Younghae Chung (Logos Calligraphy) a left handed calligrapher, and Shinah Chang (Crooked Calligraphy). I'm 2 weeks into a beginner Copperplate Foundations course and the pen has not been super stressful to use - i also did not have to adjust the flange too much to get the desired angle. John Neal Booksellers is great and their customer service is awesome and prompt, the packaging was secure that when I finally opened my box in Trinidad nothing shifted.
