I have a family member who is learning to be a leftie, after a quarter century of right (handed) living. I have twisted her young mind into liking fountain pens, and when I asked if she would like a nice pen to practice with, she was very much on board.
I had seen, (probably on e-bay), listings that claimed to have nibs that were good for left-handed writing, and now I'm not able to find them. I thought that these were Pilot PO(Posting) nibs, but now I'm not seeing any of these claims, and/or nibs. To be clear, I see the PO nibs, but not the claims of "good for left handed writing".
I'm not looking for italics, at least at this point. The posting nib is more in line with her usage (as it is with mine) - relatively fine, easy and fun to write with, and not requiring a great deal of effort to get legible writing. These are brainstorming instruments, and no one else sees most of the scribbles of these pens, but having the writing experience pleasurable is paramount.
So, is there a nib that will tend to lower frustration, and if possible, just work? She is not easy on her devices, so I'm still thinking the posting nib would be a decent choice: a nail, but one that I believe will not tend to dig into the paper. I am not a left handed writer, so I can't actually know what will or won't work. I really want this to be a good experience, she's got enough frustration on her plate for the foreseeable future. If I need to back away from this, please let me know.
Thanks much in advance for sharing your experience and advice...
