The Fountain Pen Guide for Lefties (Pt. 2): Notepads to use & Rhodia ReverseBook-Review

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.

    • …hence, I show you some workarounds and also do….
  • a review of the Rhodia Reverse Book that can be used as a notebook or a notepad, which makes it perfect for lefties.
