A simple yet classic fully adjustable penholder from the premier Penmanship/Calligraphy company, Ziller of Kansas City. The pen staff is a gray plastic one with a custom fitted brass flange that has quite a bit of adjustability. The dies used to form it are set for nibs like the 101 and 303, however we can adjust up to a Hiro 40, which is quite large, or down to an EF66, which is quite small in comparison. The pen staff is reasonably priced making it a great choice for the novice as well as the experienced pen artist.
A word about Ziller of Kansas City:
Ziller of Kansas City is an engrossing (calligraphy) art studio that was founded by Frederick W. Tamblyn in 1895. At that time Tamblyn also began the Tamblyn School of Penmanship that was a correspondence course program. Over Tamblyn's lifetime it is estimated that he worked with more than 40,000 students. In 1933, Stephen A. Ziller, a Zanerian College graduate, came to work for F. W. Tamblyn. Three years later Ziller purchased the studio and later changed the name to Ziller of Kansas City. The current proprietors, Vivian and Richard Mungall became partners with Stephen Ziller in 1985. Vivian was recently inducted as a Master Penman by IAMPETH. As the head Engrosser at Ziller of KC, she continues to create high-grade resolutions, awards, scrolls, certificates, diplomas, and other recognition awards and also offers a wide variety of business gifts and promotional merchandise. Most calligraphers already know about the wonderful Ziller Inks they produce.
