Why only a broad nib for right hand users? Limits sales I'd guess.

Schneider only makes this pen in a broad nib for righthanded users. There are other styles which Massdrop has offered in the past that are a M nib, such as Schenider Base Ftn Pen.
It writes smooth, but is a little overpriced, cost me 26 dollars where i could buy locally for twelve euros. Well okay, Massdrop is not really meant for Europeans...
I received my pen. I expressly asked for a left handed nib, but instead received a right handed nib. This stinks, but I gave it to my wife.
Can anyone who owns the left-handed version tell me if the "specially designed nib" works for overwriters? (Also sometimes referred to as hookers!)

The left handed nibs were designed to allow ink to flow in a "pushing the nib across the paper" as opposed to the "pulling" action a righty would do. I'm a lefty but not an overwriter, if I understand your meaning. My left hand sits below the writing line as I write. I hope this helps and would like to hear from other lefties who have used this or another Schneider Left handed fountain pen nib.

Thanks! I suspect the nib is meant for under-writers, like you. You push on an upstroke and on a horizontal (left to right) and pull on a downstroke, correct? I pull on an upstroke and push on a downstroke, just because I am holding the pen with the nib pointed more or less toward me! I probably won't know for sure unless I join the drop and try the pen. I have set a reminder so I can think about it.
Ok, got the replacement Nib... how do I replace it?

I second this. I think it would have been easier to send the whole plastic piece screw in piece vs just the nib.

OK so I found this and used this method and it worked.. https://www.jetpens.com/blog/how-to-change-a-lamy-fountain-pen-nib/pt/270 just make sure that you press it all the way in and its aligned or it will be scratchy.
Are the add on mechanical pencils ambidextrous because their doesn't seem to be an option to choose whic doesn't seem to be an option to choose which hand?
AAHHHHH
Yes! The fountain pen has a contoured rubber grip designed for either a right handed or left handed grip dependent on the version you purchase. The mechanical pencil and ballpoint do not have a contoured grip and can be used by either a lefty or a righty.
Hi all,
More right-handed nibs have been added! Get them while you can. :)

Got mine too - thank you.

Got one, Thanks. Also got the ballpoint.
Disappointed. No more righties. Well maybe next time. I bought one on a previous drop. Excellent pen and value.

We just added more!
I picked up a lefty because I am one, but i guess Massdrop forgot that righties vastly outnumber lefties in this world and should have stocked accordingly.
Any chance there will be more right handed options on this drop?
Penlady19
Yep, they're available now in checkout.
WOW, seven days to go and only Lefties left.

Just added more!
I would love to get another one of these Schneider fountain pens, but all that is left are left-handed versions. Any chance of getting more right-handed models? Hopefully, in more nib options than just medium or broad.
sallen
Yep, we just added more.
Why does this drop mention left-handed version of the pen? Is there a right-handed version? I joined this drop but I write with my right hand. Will i have difficulty writing with this pen? Can someone please help me understand. Thanks.

Ginger grip? Did you mean finger grip? If there is a ginger grip option that I missed I am going to be mad.
sallen
Thank for the responses. I see it now.
Why don't fountain pens come with a converter by default? At the rate that I go through ink I couldn't imagine buying cartridges for my Pilot MET. Think I'm going to have to get one of these anyways though cause I like writing with both hands and I've never tried a pen designed for left handers.
Looks like these guys got some nib inspiration from Lamy. While not identical, they certainly look similar.
a quick google search reveals some comparison reviews that highlight some differences, but I wonder if they have a supplier for these nibs or make them in-house.

Lamy makes their nibs all in-house
This is my first drop! Finally I got to try out the pens. I ordered both the FP and ballpoint in black. Like everyone's comments, the ergonomic grip is extremely satisfying. I have used many other ergonomic designs, and this one is the best fitting so far. I think MD should modify the description a bit: If you are left-handed, you MUST order the left option, because the ergonomic features are handed and it will be unusable if you use one for the wrong hand. The nib writes very smoothly, not quite there as my Lamy 2000, but nevertheless I feel I can write with more power because of the ergonomic grip. So when you want to write that passionate prose, use this pen! The ballpoint design is beautiful; I bought it because of that, and the Parker type refill is superior. Due to the girth of the ballpoint, although comfortable it takes a bit of getting used to. Lastly the clip's design. I stared at it for a while because it reminds me of ... the face of a droid from the Clone Wars.
P.S. The end cap on both pens in the pictures are black, but mine are in chrome which I prefer.
I got mine in the mail today. I love the way this pen feels in my hand! I am hoping there is another drop because I would definitely order at least one, maybe 2 more of the left handed versions. Great pen!!!

Finally got it to work, make sure that you fill in all of the selection boxes. For some reason my computer hates Massdrop in any browser but MS, it hates Chrome which is my preferred browser.

I've a Samsung tablet. It's an entirely different language.
Anyone else having problems with this fountain pen leaking? Is the barrel of the fountain transparent enough to be able to see ink levels? What refills does the ball point pen accept? Are there any hacks for the ball point pen? A Google search failed to reveal any hacks for the ball point pen. I would love it if the ball point pen accepted Pilot G2 gel ink refills.
Mine is quite leaky--anyone else have this issue?
Why don't you do a drop on the matching ballpoint?
ProxyGirl
Good News ProxyGirl, you can get the ballpoint on this drop and a mechanical pencil.
I love this pen! It's fun and the nib is really smooth, writes like a dream.
