H97. Oblique Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder
This comfort-grip, "hourglass" holder with an oblique brass flange is a great improvement over the Speedball Oblique Holder. 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 color: Black or Blue.
Choose nib adjustment: 66EF (Brause 66EF), 303 (Gillott 303), Princ (Principal EF), Nikko (Nikko G).

Works well with the BRAUSE 66EF NIB
I requested this pen for Christmas because I had already received the nib, but didn't realize it wouldn't fit into the Oblique Holder I had. I'm such a newbie at calligraphy that I have to keep looking up what I have and checking the nibs with a magnifying glass. John Neal made getting the right pen easy because the online color notations indicated which nibs fit each of the Oblique Comfort Grip Adjusted Holders. It has a nice grippy feel on the blue surface.
So Much Better
This oblique penholder is so much better than than the Speedball holder that I was using. My nib now only occasionally catches on the upstroke. It was so frustrating before.
