About Oblique Nib Holders
The oblique calligraphy pen may look strange, but don’t be frightened! This pen could make your calligraphy practice easier and more comfortable. When writing calligraphy, your nib must be parallel to the writing slant that you wish to achieve and you need to exert even pressure on both tines of the nib. Right-handed writers sometimes have difficulty achieving this with a straight pen which is why the oblique nib holder calligraphy pen was invented. Oblique calligraphy pens with a flange on the left are developed for right-handed writers while pens with a flange on the right are for left-handed writers. Some oblique nib holders allow the flange or nib to be rotated to either side, thus functioning as a universal oblique nib holder.
