My Favorite Things: Century Oblique Pen Holder. . .

. . . or more precisely, a 5/8 inch Century Oblique Pen Holder.  Oh, how I love this pen holder!

It's a little fatter than the standard Century Oblique, designed to reduce hand fatigue.  It has been marvelous in reducing the pain of arthritis in my thumb.  [Here you see it with my Ziller Oblique (on right) so you can see the difference]

John Neal Bookseller also has a very thick, fat wooden straight pen holder for broad nib--that's on my wish list.  I'd love to be able to make that one into an oblique holder!
