Oblique pen modified for big nibs, like Nikko G.
Made it more anatomic and with universal nib holder, don't know how much it's going to last, but worked ok for a couple of nibs profiles...
Needs some supports on nib holder round end, but works good.

Edit: for the ferrogalic ink I used:
1gr tanic acid -you can try some heavy cofee or tea
3gr iron sulphate -garden stuff
300ml water -use less if you are usin cofee or tea

Also I'm 99% certain your photographs aren't of the actual printed object.

oh, so you are 1% right, lol

Yup I'm a fool. Your photos are correct. I had printed the wrong STL and spent a while forcing a rigid point to do flexy things. I'm using your holder and a more appropriate point now. It fits great in the hand, thanks for posting it.

As a lefty trying to learn caligraphy this looks like the best thing ever...

Great! Show som work! :)
BTW, I thought been left handed made copperplate easier..

I'm not even doing copperplate, just pages full of really basic cursive L's XD Feels like being in first grade again.

There's no standard pen-holding style for lefties, is the thing. The style I learned turns out to be really awkward for pointed nibs. But with this, they work great.
