With a growing number of penholders in the market, I wanted to share some personal recommendations for either absolute beginners or those who are interested in adding another holder to your collection!
GOOD BEGINNER HOLDERS ($ - Inexpensive/Budget Friendly)
When you are just starting out, you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on a new holder. I recommend the following either the Dual Workshop Holder ($6.49) or Moblique holder ($9-$13). They are both inexpensive, have metal flange, and ability to use for either oblique or straight holder. To use as a straight holder, you simply take out the flange and insert the nib into the inner circle. The Moblique holder comes in beautiful colors and has an inner nib compartment that may come in handy when you are on the go!
Here are other budget friendly holders that are offered under $20:
WOODEN HOLDERS ($-$$ - Reasonably Priced)
If you are willing to spend more (up to $75), here are some other options:
HANDCRAFTED PENS ($$-$$$ Investment to your Collection)
The following pens are handcrafted by talented calligraphers/craftsmen. I own some of the below and am happy to share in order to support small businesses! These holders/pens can range from $75-$300+
Here is a video to share differences of some of the holders you may see in the market!
