 Post subject: Left-handed writing pens
PostPosted: Sun Mar 08, 2009 6:14 pm 
Does anyone know where I can buy left-handed writing pens on the high street? I can buy some online but I need one for Tuesday so need to get hold of one tomorrow, whether it be in a specialist shop in London or a well-known store. Thanks!

Ther are some very good ones made by stabilo I think. I'll google and find out.

You can get left handed nobs for fountain pens , my friend had one at school.

Thanks yoyo and Susan. I found the stabilo online and they look good. I'll check the sainsbury website but if anyone knows of any shops....

Do you think John Lewis sells them or even Harrods? :shock: I NEVER shop in Harrods but am in the area tomorrow.

WHSmiths and Tescos sell the Stabilo.

Do check that you are getting the left-handed one - the display tray in our local stationers always has both L & R in it!

Thanks for this. They aren't advertised online in the stores you've all mentioned but I will have a wander round each one tomorrow in the hope I can get one. :)

Apparently (no experience of them myself) the LAMY fountain pens that are definitely for sale in WHSmith are supposed to be perfect for left-handers.

My husband and both children are all left-handed but manage well with normal pens, however, I once got into a conversation with a mother of three left-handed children who swore by this make of pen.

I agree LAMY's are great for left handers, it revolutionised my daughters handwriting.
