Fountain pens, to me, are the ultimate writing instrument and a great pleasure to use. Lefties, however, often face numerous challenges and questions when it comes to fountain pen usage. I am a lefty myself, and part of my “mission” and “giving back to the community” is to help in tearing down the (often not very high) walls that prevent left-handers from using fountain pens. That is what The Lefty-Fountain Pen Guide is meant for.
I hope you enjoy the ride and that these guides are helpful to you. Feel free to also check out my ink-reviews that also place special emphasis on lefties. Note that there is also The Essential Fountain Pen Guide to check out.
What I talk about in this video:
- A sneak-peak on the upcoming Fountain Pen Guide for Lefties-series and on what I believe to be the Magic Triangle of Lefty-Fountain Pen Usage (paying attention to nib, ink, and paper) – I will talk about that more in-depth in an upcoming post
- What a lefty-nib is and why these are made
- Different lefty-writing styles (side-writing, underwriting, overwriting)
- Why it is no problem at all for a lefty to write with (almost) any fountain pen in the world – and which few fountain pen-types to avoid (and why)
