  variable success  I have bought this pen on various occasions to replace Osmiroid pens which I have been using for many years. However, the quality has varied, with some pens working very well and others dying when in use - one would not work with my preferred grip. They are not as comfortable as Osmiroids.   Ruth Johnson

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
