Do you mean the Spencerian script, isn't it gorgeous. I do copperplate, but not Spencerian, but you could use the same nibs and holders, http://www.johnnealbooks.com/ sells them. I prefer the Brause EF66, and a newer one the N69. Brause Rose Nib.

Great website here:

I havn't done any calligraphy in a long time as I got caught up with watercolour, I am definitely going to have to get my nibs out and start practicing.
