This highly popular type of pen is relatively new in the world of Arabic calligraphy. It was introduced by Javanese pilgrims to Mecca in the beginning of 19th century and quickly gained reputation for its ability to retain sharpness even after prolonged use. It is frequently noted, that one of the great Ottoman calligraphers Hasan Riza Efendi was able to copy the entire Qur’an in on a single cut of his java Qalam.
This set contains 5 pens in sizes: 1.5, 2, 3, 4 and 4.5 mm.
Note: Some left-handed Arabic calligraphers prefer to use qalams cut for right hand. If you are left-handed but are unsure if left hand cut pen is suitable for you, get in touch with us.
