We are delighted to announce our first collaboration with Tom's Studio. Tom has designed and made this beautiful oblique pen holder handcrafted from brass, solid copper and sycamore exclusively for Quill. Every part of the pen holder is lovingly made by Tom in his studio by the sea, hand turned, sanded and finished on a 60 year old Myford engineering lathe.
Tom's oblique nib holder has a great balance in the hand and a lovely reassuring weight to it. With a precisely fitted brass flange this holder will make your calligraphy feel effortless. The brass flange fits most standard size nibs such as Nikko G, but can be simply adjusted to fit smaller nibs too. Comes with a standard or bullock flange.
Packaged in a black presentation box with Tom's Studio foil stamped in gold. Comes with polishing cloth and care information. The perfect gift for calligraphy enthusiasts and stationery lovers.
You can find a video made by Tom here, which shows you how you can adjust the flange to suit different nibs.
