Oblique pen holder

in 5 min & 3 folds

oblique pen holder - blanzy pen nib


Rigid origami. 100 years old Blanzy pen nib.

Rotring Tikky II 0.35 mm.


To bring the nib's tip closer to your grip, making its positioning more precise, more controllable, you can add another 45° bend to this layout, forming a reverse beam.

Experiment with angles, distances, hardness of the structure, nibs, inks and papers: all of these would produce a different scripting behaviour. Prepare the nib, ensuring ink holding on it well, and its edges are not too sharp as to scratch paper. Note that this holder designed to allow you to place an ink reservoir under the nib.
