Pen Holder

This pen holder has a new brass flange very nicely finished (now gold plated 24KT) and adapted for the Nikko G nib.

This penholder, with its adjustable brass flange, is suitable for the Spencerian and Copperplate hand.


With Nikko G nib

The Nikko G nib fits perfectly in the flange and you don’t have to make any adjustment.

Nibs that are compatible without adjustments are: Zebra G, Zebra G hard, Zebra G titanium.


Comfortable Body

With its ergonomic and comfortable shape, this penholder is not coated with epoxy resin but with a natural transparent paint. 

The stains can be washed immediately.

※Variations may occur due to the use of natural materials.

​・Two types : Cherry Wood and Olive Wood

Both are hard woods and they functionally work really well.

The differences lead to the appearance of body of pen holders. 

​・Lovingly used by Barbara Calzolari.
