Gillott Pen Holder #51
Dec 30, 2021  |  By J Dolphin
Somewhat disappointing to be truthful. The holder itself is a reasonably sturdy plastic, but the tip, which holds the nib, is not. The two that I received do not have a straight alignment for the nib. I do not know if that is by design or a flaw. At any rate, in removing a nib, this tip broke. The plastic is lodged in the nib and I have not been able to remove it, making the nib useless. I will order more holders but be aware of this issue for future use.
Owner Response: I am sorry that you received defective product. I am emailing you separately about sending replacements for the holders and the nib.
