Don't know if this will help Shawn; it's dip style pen tips from a right handed writer.

Oh shoot, I didn't even know about that. I should have at least spread my toast using my left hand!

Happy International Left-Hander's Day 2014 everyone! I hope no one was injured using their right(wrong)-handed appliances or tools! Here's to the 10%!!!

Man I wish I would have paid attention and known that Aug. 13 was international sinister's (left handed in Latin) day. But anyway being left handed I have been trying hard to write with the dip style fountain pen but can not get it. I write just fine with the cartridge styles but can not get the dip style. Does any of my fellow left handers have any suggestions?

A bit late on the draw here, but still some time for us West Coast Left Handers to celebrate. Today (August 13th) is International Left-Handers day.

So I'm right handed, but 2 of my 3 sons are lefties...I desire to understand what it will be like for them! Thanks for having me!

Anyone else think it's funny that our day fell on Friday the 13th?
