Giveaway: Jaay Pens


Enter to win this beautiful oblique holder by Jake Minnema of Jaay Pens! This is a custom, hand-turned and finished, oblique pen holder made from black palm wood. It was crafted entirely by hand in a simple but elegant "teardrop" shape, highlighting black palm's naturally beautiful patterning.

The flange is handmade from brass and custom fit for a Leonardt Principal nib (not included, but you can get one here) which perfectly aligns to center when fully in the flange. The flange is set at a slightly upward angle to help with ease of writing.

We highly recommend that you browse Jake's other creations at the Jaay Pens shop.
