Recommendations of pen holders for Gillott 290 & 291?
« on: March 08, 2021, 12:55:44 PM »
Hello,

I seem to have a challenging time finding the right fit for a pen holder for both Gillott 290 & 291 nibs.  Any recommendations?  I appreciate your help in advance.

Hi Jennifer,
Oooo - good question! I don't know if I have ever used those nibs. Are they similar in size to any others?

Any of these work. Any pen holder with an adjustable flange should work also.

Thank you for the recommendations.  i saw that Brause one in a recent search.   ;)  I had just ordered and received an E+M straight holder (with the 4-prongs).  It fit perfectly in it and the rest of my collection of nibs.  Yay!  I plan on getting another brand of this style, maybe the Brause one.
