How triangular barrels are left-handed
Although not specifically left-handed, our triangular shaped pens and pencils encourage a good "tripod" grip for all ages. The ones with over-sized triangular shaped barrels are easier for little hands to manoeuvre and grip. They are suitable for all ages, but are particularly useful for encouraging little left-handers to hold the pencil correctly - between the first two fingers and resting on the third - which they often find difficult to do.
