Pens For Light Handed Writers.

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! Hope all of you are doing super well.

I haven't experienced a hell lot of fountain pens but I do have a few nice vintage ones that work pretty well. I'm a very light handed writer. I don't apply pressure on the nib when writing and many times some of my pens don't start unless I apply pressure, which I find super annoying.

Since I dont apply pressure, I do appreciate a mildly heavy pen. Does anybody know a well weighted pen that has a super flowy nib that just writes perfectly under the pens weight? I'm looking for pens that aren't too expensive. Maybe upto 40$

I like M or F nibs. Just incase you might be interested.

 

Thanks a lot! :)

I am not a lefty but from what I've been learning in this thread you might enjoy a Lamy Studio, particularly a Steel model with a rubber grip or a Palladium with a Fine steel nib: their msrp seems to be about $75 but can be found at your stated budget. The other colours are beautiful but the sections are a little slippery. My one fine nib Studio is one of my smoothest pens, with Yama Guri.

 

They have the same nib as my Lamy Vistas, but for some reason all my 3 studios are smoother. Soon to be 4 Studios B) .

No pen brand or model comes with super flowy nibs. It is the individual pen that may have either a wet or a dry nib. I have mutiple pens of same brand/model and some have wet nibs and others have dry nibs. So no suggestion.

 

Also a pen's weight may not make it a wet writer. I have a big weighty (metal body) Shaeffer Grande Coonaisseur and the nib is as hard and as stiff as an iron rod.

I know a heavier pen won't be wetter. I put the weight part in there cuz I need some balance between my touch and the pens weight. A lightweight pen feels weird in my hand. Also do you think I can fix such issues myself? Thanks for the help! :)

I developed a very light hand from many years of animation...let me suggest that you can probably get a lot out of flex nibs with that level of control. A wetter ink may also be helpful.

Any properly adjusted fountain pen should flow from the instant the ink on the tip of the nib touches the paper, without any pressure. If a pen doesn't start writing, it usually means there is no ink on the tip of the nib, or that ink has dried. Often, the answer is just to dip the end of the nib in clean water for an instant at the beginning of a session, and to get in the habit of slipping the cap back over the pen when you stop writing for more than a few seconds.. If that consistently doesn't work, the pen needs more thorough cleaning or perhaps adjusting.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
