Oblique
An oblique tip is cut at an angle, which is usually about 15 degrees, normally from top right to lower left. This is called a left oblique, and is normally used by right-handed writers. Unfortunately some companies, including Parker Pen Co. call this a right oblique.Line-width variation is more subtle from an oblique than from an italic or stub; the broadest stroke a left oblique can produce is the upper-left-to-lower-right diagonal. If your handwriting is typical of right-handed writers, your characters will not have many of these strokes, making line width variation less immediately noticeable than with italics or stubs. It is, however, the tip favored by many for correspondence.
