This pen features a hooked neck and off-centre tip which allows left handers to see what they are writing clearly and as the fingers are further away from the tip there is less chance of smudging. The pen has a soft-touch triangular grip area with the finger and thumb indentations positioned to encourage a correct left handed writing grip.
The fast-drying non-smudge ink gives a smooth ink flow for easy writing without any skipping when pushed across the page left-handed.

Good pen!! These pens take a while to get used to but are fantastic once you are used to it. (16/11/2012) -
Average My son tried this pen after always using the Stabilo rollerball. He says it occasionally smudges and isn't as easy and'flowing' to write with as the Stabilo- which he prefers. I guess it's good to have different left handed pens, no refil but very cheap. He was pleased to try something different. (07/06/2012) -
