    @Yazeh , I agree completely . The tools give more opportunity to tune up your skill to a next level.
    After using an oblique holder many gave up using the Non oblique straight holder.
    And then many gave up the classic oblique Holder after using the ERGONOMIC OBLIQUE HOLDER. ( I have one custom made to my hand, but I am still looking for a better one )
    That is how it about holders. amazingly your writing style improves and it is like working with paint brush. But all this is if you are aiming some high skills in writing ( drawing you say in ) calligraphy.
    I am using Rodia ,Oxford Campus refill, and Fabriano 80gsm. ( easy to find ) paper pads, and fountain pen inks for practicing.
    Most of the other low quality for pencil drillings only. I am just into Spencerian writing not to a big calligrapher but I am aiming for a goal.

    @ Lil Smit you are right. Your favourite pen/pens would gives you more energy to get going with your writing . If all three components are correct ( Pen: Paper: Ink: ) it gives the writing more pleasure. Whether it is dip pen calligraphy or F.Pen on a note book it is a great way to get your brain-mussels motivated.
    JOURNALING IS A GREAT WAY TO CULTIVATE YOUR MUSSELS MEMORY AND every word you put into the pages will comes from your mind/ or from your thinking process to the paper!!!

    Brause Rose 76 Nib is an excellent low-cost nib. I'm just getting started with calligraphy, and these nibs are definitely a step up than the ones that came with the basic kit I purchased. It provides me with much finer control and more constant ink flow. Because the nibs are both flexible and forgiving, they are suitable with flexible calligraphy pens. It's difficult to get softer nibs, so if you're seeking for one, have a look at them.

    I find that Brause nibs are in general difficult to use, with non viscous inks. The only inks they seems to like are Sumi inks....

    @junglejim I believe that the sneaky spammer has now been deleted and you might wish to also delete your post in order to not give the link any more free advertising.
