Free Oblique holder
« on: June 07, 2018, 07:32:35 AM »
This is an oblique pen holder made by ChicObliques in the UK.  It is crafted from English Yew wood, and features a grip that is based on the Ransomerian planed surface grip.  It is one of the relatively new Curv-E holders.  It is beautifully crafted and polished.



As can be seen the holder is best suited for smaller to medium sized hands.  It measures about 135 mm  in length. The holder is currently fitted with a Gillott 404 as an example, it will take 303s, zebra Gs and Leonardt Prinicipal nibs.  The picture shows it alongside a Tachikawa holder that many should be familiar with (I hope) for scale.


So, I invite expressions of interest from people who may be able to use this.  If there are a few entries I will pick one randomly.

Postage anywhere is included in this offer.   The holder is completely free.

Please be aware, as noted above, that this holder will not easily suit someone with large hands.

I would absolutely love to have this holder. I have small hands, and being situated in Denmark its very hard to come by any oblique holders, not to say impossible, to try and hold them.

I have practiced a loose grip for the past months and it would be a lovely reward for ditching the death grip.

Whoever gets this, Id like to thank you for you generosity

I will leave this active until Monday (local New Zealand time) and then make a selection.

It's beautiful; I've been curious about the Curv-E holders since Erica first posted about them. I have small hands and write in a more traditional grip, so I've had one of these on my to-try list since they came out.

Thank you for your generosity on the forum!

Ooh, please consider me as well.  Small hands, and I've only had the opportunity to try cheap Chinese oblique pens.

At any rate, thanks for the opportunity!  It'll be a lovely pen for someone.  :D

Okay, there were seven interested persons, and oh I wish I could give something to everyone. Alas, that I cannot.

Numbers were assigned, randomised and, in a manner reminiscent of the national lottery, a number rolled out.

The recipient of this giveaway is Jennifer J    ;D ;D

I'm getting a little concerned that this hasn't arrived yet, and I have no confirmation from Jennifer.
