    Default Vintage dip pens

    Pens in the calligraphy world is "Pen nibs" Nibs that which writs on the papers. The rest is the Pen holder that supports the nib to use it.
    All of these oblique holders are armed with a different vintage Pens/ Nibs and they are the best calligraphy nibs favoured by many penman.
    On this thread. I am going to add each pen's writing individually to show the difference in characters with the name or brand with a short introduction.

    Thanks for the picture. Is any of them obtainable or made anymore?

    I have two oblique pens and both of the suffer from the same brass nib insertion bit. The pens look different, but the brass bit looks like they all are made in the same factory and they only have one model. I think mine came in a Manuscript set, with pen holder and nibs from the same brand. I may have to look further into this. Maybe I shouldn't fuss too much, with a bit of bending and tweaking they hold the nib.
