Fountain pens are a joy to write with and I am happy that I was re-introduced to them. The pens themselves do not differentiate or tend to favor righties or lefties. Bear in mind that the difference that can affect a lefty’s ability to write is where the pen meets the paper - the nib. Select your nib carefully. I suggest choosing from the basic “ball” nibs in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, or double broad. If you feel adventurous, try a 1.1mm or 1.5mm stub nib. The nib is ground flat with the corners slightly rounded. Other exotic nibs, such as italic, music, architect, or oblique require the pen to be held at a particular angle to the paper in order to produce the desired lines. Lefties, especially over-writers may find it difficult to have any success with these nibs.
Searching the web for “Best Fountain Pens for Lefties” will often show results for starter, or beginner pens which are priced at the low end of the spectrum and look the part. You need not feel restricted by the pens in these collections. You can have elegance and luxury with your fountain pen that enhances any shirt pocket or draw notice when you take it out, un-cap it and begin to write. Just be careful of your nib selection when purchasing a fine writing instrument.
