This beautiful, sturdy fountain pen from Lamy is the classic for writing beginners at Waldorf schools. The child-friendly and pedagogically meaningful design of the fountain pen is made of light maple wood and with red or blue plastic, which makes it easy to start writing with ink. The non-slip, rubberised grip with age-appropriate ergonomics gives a secure hold and prevents fingers from cramping. The elastically swinging, medium-strong steel nib helps children to achieve a harmonious writing style. The fountain pen can be filled with Lamy T 10 ink cartridges. A name sticker enables children to quickly recognise their Lamy fountain pen. The fountain pen is suitable for both right- and left-handed children. Made in Germany. Learning to write begins in the Waldorf School on the very first day of school with the drawing of straight lines and crooked lines. In the process of learning to write, the children follow a path from painting to drawing to writing. Writing is quasi emphasized out of drawing. In this way the children do not get to know the letters in an abstract and analytical way, but the teacher develops them lively from a picture or lets the children experience the letter form in movement. In the first two years at a Waldorf School the children use almost exclusively wax crayons and wax colouring blocks for writing, drawing and painting. In the third class, writing with a fountain pen is introduced. Lamy's beginner's fountain pen is ideal as a first-time fountain pen. Material: maple wood, plastic, steel nib. Dimensions: Length 125 mm ø 13.5 mm on the grip. Lamy is a market leader in the manufacture and sale of writing instruments. The company offers high quality "Made in Germany".
