Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

Unique Obliques

One day I received this package from my good friend Brian Smith, and was delighted to find two oblique pen holders inside, packed securely within a white PVC pipe along with a beautiful letter.

The first pen was one made by him which I had previously managed to break. I sent it to him and thankfully, he repaired it so successfully that it works perfectly as if new. But the second pen stole my breath! I’m not sure what the woods are (he’s the guy to ask) but the lovely light wood seems to glow in the sun, it is amazing. Thanks, Brian!! I have fitted it with a Nikko G and can’t wait to try it out.

You can see the penholders he has for sale on his website, UniqueObliques.
