J&T's Multi Pen Nib Holder - Gilt

J&T's Multi Pen Nib Holder

Gilt Finish

Length Approx 6" / 150mm

We have had these Dip Pen Nib holders made for us, they follow the style of the older dip pen nib handle of the 1950/60’s. The older style were very versatile in the size of nib shank they would accommodate and were not prone to going rusty. Also the wood and varnish of the handle was not subjected to water ingress, which can causes it to crack and flake off. They were the nib holder of choice in many drawing offices.

Our new, old style, dip pen nib holders are often the only handles that will take Vintage dip pen nibs. The Vintage nibs are usually made of a thicker metal than those of today and the common nib holders do not always accept them. Some Vintage nibs also have a different shank profile which again will not fit todays holders.

Personally I like this style of holder because they are easy to keep clean, they do not drop rusty particles onto your work as you use them, they have the finger grip further from the nib, as it should be, and they are well balanced in the hand.

They come with either a Silver or Gilt metal nib ferrule, on a wooden Walnut handle made using wood from renewable sources.

Bought these to try, and i am greatly impressed. So much so much so that I’m leaving this review as I’m returning to buy more. Nibs fit snuggly and the holder is light and comfortable in the hand

I have been using the modern equivelent of a dip pen with a + shaped top which proved to be useless. I have bought 2 of these they are fantastic and I will never go back to the more modern ones
