H23. Speedball Oblique Penholder
Black plastic hourglass shape penholder with offset for nib. User for copperplate, Engrosser's and Spencerian Scripts, and for Modern Calligraphy. The offset helps righthanders with the letter slant. Most lefthanders use a straight holder not this oblique holder. However, some use an oblique holder.
These pointed nibs work in this holder: Hunt 22, Hunt 56, Hunt 99, Hunt 100, Hunt 101, Hunt 103, Hunt 104,
Gillott 170, Gillott 303, Gillott 404, Gillott 1950
Hiro 700, Esterbrook 354, Brause Rose Nib.
The Nikko G nib will work okay, but the holder is not ideal for this nib.
Gillott 659 does NOT work with this holder; use H75 (Gillott Holder #51) instead.
The EF Principal does not work in this holder. See H97. Oblique Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder (Size) PRIN, and both the Blackwell Holders H50, H61
