“The biggest single improvement you can make to your handwriting- for ease of writing, reading, and enjoyment- is to write with a better pen.” – Margaret Shepherd from The Art of The Personal Letter.
Since your pen is the tool which commits your thoughts to paper, having one that feels comfortable in your hand is essential. “A pen is a very personal item,” Jan- Patrick Schmitz, CEO from Monte Blanc. Choosing a pen is a “hands-on” event. Mr. Schmitz mentions several points to consider: the balance and weight in the hand, the hold angle, the pressure on the page, and the speed you write with. It is all about how the pen feels in your hand. One can easily develop an emotional attachment to a favorite pen.
