    What makes the nibs different for being left-handed?

    A left-handed nib in calligraphy is a nib that is designed to be used by left-handed calligraphers. It is typically angled slightly to the right, so that the ink flows smoothly and does not smudge when the calligrapher writes from left to right. Left-handed nibs are available in a variety of materials, including steel, gold, and platinum. They can be purchased from a variety of online and brick-and-mortar retailers.

    Here are some of the benefits of using a left-handed nib in calligraphy:

    • Reduced smudging: When a left-handed calligrapher uses a regular nib, the ink can easily smudge on the paper as they write from left to right. This can be frustrating and can make it difficult to create clean, crisp lines. A left-handed nib is designed to reduce smudging, so that calligraphers can create beautiful, legible work.
    • Improved comfort: A left-handed nib is designed to be held in a comfortable position for left-handed calligraphers. This can help to reduce fatigue and pain in the hand and wrist.
    • Increased accuracy: A left-handed nib can help calligraphers to write more accurately. This is because the nib is angled to the right, so that it is easier to control the flow of ink.

    If you are a left-handed calligrapher, I encourage you to try using a left-handed nib. You may be surprised at how much easier it makes it to create beautiful, legible work.
