Bortoletti wood oblique calligraphy pen with bronze nib holder. This set comes with three nibs and a 30ml bottle of ink. The oblique pens are an essential tool for people who want to achieve extreme angles as in Copperplate and Spencerian calligraphy.
We have teamed up with Bortoletti to bring their handmade Italian pens to the United States. These dip pens are some of the finest available and will provide you with all the tools you need to make you calligraphy / writing masterpieces. The combination of the bronze nib holder with the actual pen body gives every writing instrument a certain beauty.
The oblique Penholder is an ideal tool for the calligrapher who wants to move to a higher level. Using an oblique pen is much more comfortable than using a straight one. The pen has been designed and tested with the assistance of the calligraphers who collaborate with the Bortoletti artistic foundry.
The lateral screw assists with the adjustment of the nib that must be aligned with the center of the pen laterally. It is inclined slightly upwards to assist with the opening of the nib teeth; by increasing the pressure, they will widen, leaving more ink to create the shadow part of chiaroscuro. In addition, the nib glides on the paper without difficulty and both teeth will be in contact with the paper.
The oblique calligraphy pen has been made entirely by hand by our craftsmen. The care dedicated to each pen is truly unique: bronze and wood worked in the exquisite style of Venetian craftsmanship. The finishes of the materials and the refined details of the bronze decorations are the result of our quest to achieve balance between traditional craftsmanship and innovation. The Venier calligraphy pen is sold in an elegant quality dusty pink cardboard box with a gold logo.
The glass bottle with the screw cap has an excellent seal. The mouth is wide and makes it possible for you to dip the oblique pen without getting it dirty. Hamburg inks are high quality calligraphy inks; the color remains very intense even when the ink has dried.
Bortoletti Artistic Foundry was established in 1980 by four brothers, driven by a passion for bronze casting and sculpture which they inherited from their father.
The story begins in Venice, and it’s a tale of love, passion for tradition and the need to preserve the beauty of this culture, handed down from father to son.
Many years of experience led to great strides forward in the quality of our creations, which had an effect on our entire production process. At the same time, the foundry began collaborating with two great artists: Elio Martella and Agostino Venturini.
The artistic creativity flowing from the pencils of these two masters gave birth to new product designs, and they have been the lifeblood of the whole creative process. Our products are very aesthetically pleasing because they bring to mind the past using the language of the present.
This product will be shipped via the USPS priority due to the shipping weight.
