Five good reasons...

...for writing with the fountain pen

1. Write without getting tired

Ergonomic writing instruments have a positive influence on the development of fine motor skills and legible handwriting.

All Lamy learn-to-write devices have handles with age-appropriate ergonomics. They provide a secure grip when writing and prevent your fingers from cramping. In this way, they promote a fatigue-free writing posture and accelerate the development of legible handwriting.

2.Training fine motor skills

Writing with a fountain pen particularly promotes the ability to coordinate and concentrate. A fountain pen must be gripped and guided correctly. Only then does the nib glide ideally when writing and the ink can flow evenly onto the paper. This fine motor challenge promotes the child's ability to coordinate and concentrate to a particularly high degree - not only when learning to write.

3. Stabilize movement patterns

Writing with a fountain pen requires prudence. This gives the children more time to memorize the sequence of the individual letters. When writing, the nib is naturally subjected to resistance from the paper. This resistance provides stability and additional security when guiding the fountain pen. This makes it easier to adhere to and internalize movement patterns.

4.Improved typeface

The fountain pen speeds up the writing movements considerably. As a result, children work more carefully. Smooth-running rollerball refills invite you to write faster and at the same time more carelessly. The slower writing speed with the fountain pen, on the other hand, also means greater care. The result is a clean, consistent, and legible typeface.

5. Versatile spring variants

For all writing needs – there are also special nibs for left-handers. Unlike right-handers, left-handers don't have to drag their writing implement across the paper, but push it. Lamy has developed special left-handed nibs with a slanted writing tip for this purpose. In this way, left-handed people also benefit from the advantages of the fountain pen. Only fountain pens can be individually tailored to the different needs of learning to write. Lamy fountain pens are available with up to four different nib widths. In addition to steel nibs with medium-wide and fine writing tips, there are also special nibs for beginners and left-handers.

  • A Steel nib with a ball-shaped tip – especially for beginners (LAMY abc, LAMY nexx)
  • LH steel nib with slanted tip – especially for left-handers (LAMY abc, LAMY nexx)
  • M steel nib with medium-wide tip (LAMY nexx)
  • F Steel nib with a fine tip (LAMY nexx)
