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?

Yep, they're available now in checkout.
WOW, seven days to go and only Lefties left.
