      I named this holder Tamaraw as a tribute to this rare and critically-endangered species that is only found in the Philippines. Also known as a dwarf buffalo, the Tamaraw is recognizable by  its short and V-shaped horns and often mistaken for a carabao because of their similarities.  Numerous government and non-government programs have been launched to ensure the survival  of the Tamaraws for future generations and preserve the biological heritage for all Filipinos.

      This ergonomic holder allows the writer to gain full control of the pen by assisting your fingers to the points where it can gain control at the same time comfort - side of the middle finger resting comfortably on the right corner, thumb on the left curve and forefinger on top, close to the flange and the tip of the point.   It literally feels like an extension of your hand.
