Shkhakir Armenian Script Writing

Sła’gir (Շխագիր) cursive script is rarely seen in manuscripts and was used mainly for notes. Executed with reed pens, its main characteristic was that it possessed an equal width of all elements. In general, the shape of the letters recalls that of an irregular Bolor’gir, although some elements of Straight Erkata’gir are in evidence as well. This became the basis for contemporary hand-written scripts in Armenia.
