That’s because there are two main challenges that make left-handed writing especially difficult:
A left hand immediately obscures the letters and words just written – making it hard for the writer to keep track, especially when it’s a child learning to write.
A left-handed writer can easily smudge ballpoint, roller ball, felt tip and other inks – making a mess of school work, letters and other important documents.
‘The Underwriter Style’ – tilts the paper to the left, adopting a downward sloping writing line. Letters
and words then tend to lean annoyingly forward.
Swanneck Pens represent a revolution in left-handed ballpoint pen design that’s not only ergonomic, it looks great too.
Extensive trials show that our easy-to-hold Swanneck profile generates nothing but a positive response, both from children and older writers who’ve long been frustrated by conventional right-handed pens.
It’s great for right-handers too!
Swanneck Pens are also ideal for right handers needing to write ‘right to left’ – for example in Arabic or Asian languages. Our simple but intelligent design solves ‘cover up’, speed, smudging and posture problems for ‘right to left’ writers just as effectively.
