My friend Peter (who is left-handed) and I have recorded a video for you on fountain pen use for left-handed people. Can left-handers use fountain pens? What should they take into account? What can they expect? What nibs, inks and paper might work well for them?

In this new series of videos, I chat about my pens. There will be no writing samples here: if you’re interested in that, please check out my reviews of the individual pens or see my Personal Pens videos.
In this first installment, I talk about my Visconti pens.
Maxpedition allowed me to purchase this pack for review purposes at a discount – thank you kindly!
Let’s chat about reviewers being enthusiastic about expensive pens, the cognitive dissonance phenomenon, and how to deal with that phenomenon. And, as a free bonus: let’s chat about objectivity in reviews again.
Mr Peter Ford of MrPen very kindly sent me the complete lineup of 10 nibs he sells for the Churchman’s Prescriptor model. A very exciting opportunity to demonstrate how each of these nibs write.
Let’s talk about why anyone would want to use fountain pens in an increasingly digital age.
Let’s take a scientific approach to keeping our hobby interesting!
