If you are a lefty, you know the quality of your pens matter. I never learned to write the way the nuns wanted me to in catholic school - without dragging the ink all over the page, my hand, and my desk. Those that did, I tip my hat to you. This pen writes so smoothly that you expect to turn your hand over and see ink smeared from here to Oklahoma. But not the case!! You will see perfectly unmarred letters. Although the pen cannot correct poor handwriting, it does pretty much everything else.
