Larger than most fountain pens, the Schneider ID features an ergonomic, award-winning design that includes an elastomer grip molded to make the “proper” writing position feel more natural. The pen accepts both standard converters and standard international cartridges, and is appointed with a slightly flexible, chrome-plated, stainless steel nib that glides on paper offering smooth writing. The hefty cap, fixed with a wide and sturdy clip, offers a satisfying click when closed, and snug, suction-cup like fit onto the end when posted.
Note: At checkout, choose the right-handed version with the broad nib or the left-handed version with the medium nib. Both are available with your choice of accent color: chrome, lemon, or purple. You can also add a matching ballpoint pen (+ $12), a 0.9mm mechanical pencil with lemon accents (+ $12), and a 6-pack of cartridge refills (+ $3.50). These add-ons are considered "vintage" Schneider, and are discontinued with limited availability.
A reverse version of the ID is made available especially for left-handed writers. The “L” model features a leftie nib and a grip adjustment that feels great in the left hand.
