  1. I am about to make my first gold nib purchase and I'm unsure about which nib I should get. I am a lefty, over writer without a hook. I turn my paper/journal at a 45 degree counter clockwise angle when I write, so I write away from my body. I will be purchasing a Santini pen, I enjoy using the Pilot Metropolitan Cursive Medium and would like a similar, if not more refined writing experience. My choices are Italic, Left Oblique or Reverse Oblique. They also offer a 0.9mm Italic nib as an option to their 1.1 Italic. Any insight would be appreciated, I've had a recent bad experience w

    Can You Recommend A Blue Ink?

    A colleague showed me his Twsbi Eco and I was so impressed by the piston-filler concept, it re-kindled my love of fountain pens after a 4-year hiatus. Now I need a nice blue ink to go with it . I've been using Parker Quink permanent blue for most of my life and I love it. My other favourite ink is Waterman Florida blue (last bottle I purchased was in 2009 so I still use the old name in my head ). Looking for an ink that's slightly less "purple" and more "blue" than these, with the following qualities: Quick-drying (I'm left-handed) Wet/smooth feel of nib on paper (I currently use a Lamy
  4. I am 20 years old, a left handed writer, and new to the world of fountain pens. I taught myself cursive when I was in the 7th grade, because before then my penmanship was absolutely terrible, and schools in the U.S. do not teach it past the 2nd grade. For a very long time I have admired the beauty of Spencerian script, yet I am very apprehensive to even attempt to learn it because of my handedness. Normally I am a hooker, like most left handers, but I do not view that as practical for a script that emphasizes whole arm movement. I am trying to become a sort of underhanded writer, and am doing
  5. I confess not only to being left-handed having illegible handwriting and horrible printing for the last 70 years, since kindergarten, but also to using mild dyslexia and lack of coordination as an excusefor using typewriters and computers in the intervening years. Now in impecunious retirement, I have decided it is time to learn calligraphy. Note, I do not say "try to learn" -- I say learn. My first foray has been into using Pilot Parallel pens and basic and supposedly easy unembellished Gothic as seen on You-Tube. I also have discovered that I use over, under and side writing as a mat

  7. Folks, 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 writi
  8. Hello, I´ve been using fountain pens daily for a couple of years. First I had a Montblanc 592. A flea market find that wrote like a dream and got me into FP´s. Later I found an ST Dupont, gilt sterling silver one (I don´t know the model name) that also worked very well. The first pen I bought new was a Lamy 2000. I´ve used it daily for 2-3 years and it is a great pen for me. It has never ever failed to put ink on a paper when I want it to. Not once. Being a left handed overwriter, I use a lot of push writing and I´ve found that some nibs work better than others for me. For instance I owned a
  9. I have a friend at work that is struggling with an italic pen. He is left handed and having trouble finding a comfortable writing position or font to use. I am right handed so I don't know where to start to help him. I am looking for any advice, links or examples that could help him. He has not asked me to ask, but I know that he is really interested in italic calligraphic handwriting and is having trouble finding a way to make it work. Thank you in advance all for your help.
  10. http://www.lefthandersday.com/wp-content/uploads/lh-zone-200.gif It's almost that time again! Left Handers Day is on Wednesday, August 13. There are a lot of fun resources at the Left Handers Club website. They have posters you can print off, and these graphics. See last year's thread here (with even more fun images). These images are from the Left Handers Club: http://www.lefthandersday.com/wp-content/uploads/left-handers-day-150x150.png http://www.lefthandersday.com/wp-content/uploads/keep-left-200.gif http://www.lefthandersday.com/wp-content/uploads/lh-and-proud-200.gif
  11. Left Handers Club has some fun posters (.pdf) you can print off free here to help celebrate the day. They are located in the U.K. They are affiliated with Anything Lefthanded, a mail order company that specializes in left-handed pens and left-handed-friendly gadgets of all kinds. I'm not affiliated with them, though I have bought a few products to help teach my left-handed daughter how to write (I'm left-handed as well). Thought other lefties might enjoy a day just for them! http://www.lefthandersday.com/posters/leftyzone200.jpg
  12. So today I got my first chance to really practice writing with a flexible nib dip pen, I have a tiny bit of experience with flat-tipped nibs doing Uncial, but this Copperplate stuff is completely new to me. From reading on these forums I've decided not to use an oblique holder (being left handed and all), also as you can see in the video, my nib catches CONSTANTLY and its really frustrating, apparently I need to change my nib angle, but it always seems to catch (hence why I made a video). I am open to critiques on everything I am doing wrong (and considering I am a total beginner, I'm sure the
  13. Hello All, I've been trying to work on my handwriting and though not going for a particular, style I'm trying to achieve something that looks confident yet considered and doesn't look like it's written by a 10 year old. I'm finding it difficult to get a look of confidence in my writing and it looks tentative to me. I'm also having difficulty with the slope, I'm a left handed underwriter and the page is almost 90 to my body and so cannot use the right handed technique of angling the paper and then writing vertically to get a consistent slope. The attached is an example of my everyday slig
  14. I just got my first fountain pen (Visionnaire Noir [yes, I am aware of the controversy]) which I wanted because I had taken to hand writing letters. Having the pen, I want to tackle my handwriting. My current is an abysmal print (chicken scratch), and I would like to develop a respectable cursive. I currently I do not even know how to produce all of the cursive capitals. My goal from this endeavor is to be able to pick up "any old pen" (ballpoint, gel, standard-nib fountain) and be able to write a nice cursive for "everyday" writing. I intend all my practicing to be with a fountain pen.
