Chic Oblique Penholders

Edward Curran is the creator behind the beautiful Chic Oblique penholders. I contacted Edward with an idea I had for a triangular shaped pen, based on the Ransomerian but with a bit more curve to it. After sending Edward drawings and photos of paperclay model prototypes, Edward designed what I believe is the perfect pen. It is a curvilateral shape – a somewhat triangular shape but with rounded edges for better comfort, a flat top, and a shallow bottom. We call it the Curv-E pen.

It is the only pen I use now on a regular basis. See more about it in this forum post. Check out Edward’s gorgeous designs at his site: ChicOblique.

Located in England, Edward ships all over the world at a very reasonable price.
