This converter allows you to use bottled ink instead of cartridges in our range of left handed pens. Dip the open end into the ink and twist the top to draw up ink into the converter, then put into your pen like a normal cartridge. Save money on cartridges and get access to a much wider range of ink colours.

(image shows the converter in various filling positions - note that they are sold as singles, not sets of 3)

  Cartridge Pen Ink Converter  Having an old bottle of ink and no catridges, I was keen to be able to use this lovely, left-handed Ted Lapidus pen that my family gave me. A simple on-line order saw me wrting in free-flowing ink and I cannot recommend this product highly enough. It works and does exactly what it says on the tin!   Bill

How pens are left-handed

"How can a pen be left-handed?" is a question we hear all the time. Well, writing with a fountain pen can be a real problem for left-handers, as we are pushing the pen across the page rather than pulling it, which leads to difficulty with ink flow and the possibility of the nib digging into the paper. The problem is greatly alleviated by the use of a left-handed nib. Most of our pens have a rounded ball on the end of the nib that is machined to give smooth ink flow writing left-handed from almost any angle. Nibs are either fine or medium as stated in the product descriptions. Some people prefer a wider nib to produce italic script and will like our italic/oblique nib pens.

A lot of left-handers have a problem with smudging their work and if this is the case they may benefit from using a fine nib which puts less ink on the page, allowing it to dry faster.

Writing with a left-handed cartridge pen It is important to remember, however, that handwriting position is just as important as a well designed pen. For help with common handwriting problems, see our Handwriting Factsheet
