I am sad to announce the death of Blots Wooden Penholders. After a valiant struggle to keep these penholders in production I must finally accept defeat.
The penholders are made by boring a fine hole down the end of the holder. Unfortunately the last drilling bit reached the end of its life and the toolmakers, who had made several dozen previous cutters, now seem unable to make a cutter that works. They have tried, tried and failed.
Unless someone can recommend a toolmaker who can produce a short run fine cutter at an economic cost those of you who bought them previously – look after them as there will be no more.
