Did you know that 13 August is Left-Handers Day? No one has come up with a definitive reason for why some people are left-handed, but only about 13% of the population around the world are left hand dominant. Some studies attribute it to biological and genetic causes, while one very popular theory is how “left-handed people are more inclined to be creative and visual thinkers”.
However, living in a right-hand dominant world, the small number of left-hand dominant people have to deal with a good number of downsides. Historically, the dominant hand was used to judge one’s character. The word “sinister” can be traced back to the Latin word for “left”, and “right” in English is synonymous for “correct.” Fortunately, we no longer perpetuate such nuances, but left-handers still have to deal with many inconveniences such as having to use everyday items like scissors, desks, knives and notebooks that were designed with righties in mind.
Thankfully there are more and more products designed with left-handers in mind. One such product is STABILO’s EASYbirdy pen, the first-ever ergonomic fountain pen, which makes learning to write easy.
The unique, ergonomically shaped STABILO EASYbirdy fountain pen has been specially developed for school children aged 7 and over who want to improve their writing skills with ease. This is done with their award-winning design and an adjustable nib which can be fitted at three different angles to provide children with the best individual hand posture. The special right and left-handed versions and a grip zone made from non-slip material promote a relaxed hold and prevent premature muscle fatigue.

We hope that more of such products and experiences will continue to be designed with our left-handers in mind!
