Interesting. That's a good tip for left-hand dominant ones using fountain pens. I am ambidextrous but use my right hand for writing.I have a few fountain pens which I've smuggled from that parallel world, nothing too fancy but I'm partial to Kaweco's Sport model. I need fine or extra fine nibs because I'm left handed and laying down a minimal amount of ink is the only way I can avoid smudging.
Totally. Rhodia, Tomoe and Clairfontaine are all good and available but they come at a price for such satisfaction. I found out, after browsing around a Japanese store, that their regular stationery products handle different inks pretty well. I write without lines and use A5, generally. After our major COVID lockdown, their stocks are low so I had to buy in bulk overseas from Muji to continue feeding my aggressive writing behaviour.But it is oh so satisfying to write with such a pen, and on nice paper.
The site is useful for quick references but we still get equivalence people once in a while. Most of them are collectors though and spend time priming, maintaining and restoring their pens.For an interesting wonderland, pen-wise, in this universe, you might want to have a look here:
My daily is a Pilot MR3 with a Japanese medium nib and is made in Japan. Many consider this the Toyota Corolla of pens. I think so too. I think its a good pen both for hardcore users and those who are willing to enter into the fountain pen world without breaking the bank.Me I'm happy with my old Sheaffer school pen, a fountain pen.
Indeed, it is. My grandma had one and it's up for restoration now. It's amazing how a well-restored one costs today.oooo a 61, nice pen
Back when I was a blogger, I wrote a post about trying out some budget fountain pens, which I just remembered. Here it is, with photos taken with my Olympus "gateway drug", the little XZ-1 compact.
