Hi, I was looking at your Introduction to the Art of Modern Calligraphy (Calligraphy I) skillshare projects and they are beautiful! I am currently learning calligraphy and trying to find a pen holder that will hold the Brause EF66 and Nikko G nicely. I noticed you used a wooden straight holder in your post where you used both of these nibs. Would you mind sharing the brand/name of the holder? Thanks!

Hi! Thank you, I’m glad you liked my projects, actually that holder came in a Brause kit I bought ages ago, it’s a regular wooden holder, but the Tachikawa T-40, the one with the blue rubber you can see in my posts, fits both nibs well and I suppose it’s easier to find
