Oblique Penholder

These special Penholders are used for Copperplate, an elegant seventeenth-century style of writing. The right-hand slope the copperplate hand requires can be helped by the Oblique Penholder which is held at one angle while the nib points in another. Please note: Not all of the many antique dip pen nibs from the various manufacturers fit perfectly into the holders. If a nib totters, please buckle together with the nib a small peace of paper into the holder.

→ Use this pen holder together with the usual pointed nibs.
