H149. Tamblyn Style Oblique Penholder.
This beautiful new holder takes its inspiration from an original Tamblyn penholder, with the finial modeled directly from his design. The staff is slightly smaller in diameter than the Magnusson Style holder (H142). The woods: Gabon Ebony (black) is used for the grip, the band is American Holly (white), and the staff (tail) is Niove (orange). These holders are masterfully handcrafted in the USA. Each staff is individually turned, then sealed and polished to a smooth, high-gloss finish. Each holder comes in its own soft leather-like case with decorative stitching and a Velcro closure.

My husband purchased me this oblique holder for Christmas as I have been practicing calligraphy for a few weeks. It was incredible to feel the difference between this holder and the cheaper, plastic ones I used before. I had to purchase the rounded pliers to adjust the nib for some smaller ones vs the larger, it works great! I'm so happy he purchased me this holder! I'm only a beginner but good equipment can make a big difference in your work, new to calligraphy or not. Only thing is that the brass flange can be adjusted, I wouldn't mess with it too much as it felt like it could loose its intended shape/angle Thanks!
