H156. Pure Elegance Oblique Penholder. T
hese delightful oblique penholders are beautifully turned, combining hardwood with a white resin segment bordered by a gold-colored band. The resin segment has a sophisticated ivory-like visual texture. The pointed calligraphy nib is held with the standard metal (brass) offset flange. Use with a pointed nib for Copperplate Script, Engrosser's Script, Spencerian Script, or Modern Calligraphy. The (near) Black wood version has more decorative turning and is a bit heavier. Its larger resin segment moves the center of weight back away from the nib. The Brown wood version has a clean design. Both have the Zanerian-style finial at the staff's tip. The flange fits the Nikko G nib and also works with the other G-nibs, as well as with Hiro #40, Brause Steno, Brause Rose, Gillott 404, and Hunt 513.
Beautiful pen for a beautiful price. Lovely weight. Being a Brit, we're not used to having such polite and helpful customer services so as you can imagine when contacting the relevant department at John Neal's books and being treated like a valued customer, it came as a bit of a shock. I will 100% be buying from them again. Thank you John Neal's books.
