Handwriting is an essential skill in itself and also helps children learn their letters, to read and to spell. Teaching good skills begins with a good functional grip. The thumb should be neither over, or tucked under, the other fingers.

PELIKANO Fountain Pens ensure the correct tripod grip and encourage the hand to relax. The nib glides effortlessly across the page and the writing will look beautiful. You too can encourage practice by giving reasons to write - name on things, invitations, cards, recipes, competition entries.
