Stabilo Singapore has provided me for a review their EASYbirdy fountain pen, one of their first fountain pens which they have launched this year. It is an interesting pen with a feature that I haven’t seen before in other fountain pens – the nib angle can be adjusted using the red tool in the picture. The red tool is actually a device where you can plug into the cartridge area and unscrew the nib part of the pen, after which you can adjust the nib angle in 3 different places to find your preferred one, and then tighten it again.
To explain the mechanism better, I have made a video introducing the pen and its special nib adjusting mechanism, as well as a brief review of the writing experience. Oh, and I should mention that this particular version that I received is a left-handed version, which means that the ergonomic grip on the pen section is shaped nicely for a leftie to use. That’s kind of them! Although, to be honest, I am so lazy that I don’t actually bother to change the writing posture of my hand. 🙁 If you’re looking to give a fountain pen to a child as a gift, the Stabilo EASYbirdy can be a good choice.
Disclaimer: While Stabilo Singapore has provided me this pen for review purposes, all opinions are my own and not influenced by the sponsor in any way. I only met up with their representative to learn how to use the tool for the nib adjustments. 🙂

I write with my left hand, but can also do the same with my right hand – it just won’t look very pretty.
Glad to see my southpaw friends finally getting some love. 🙂
May I know where I can get one?
Thanks for the review. Do You now if the rigth handed version also has de rotating nib?
Yes, the right handed version has the rotating nib too.
Thanks for the excellent video review and instructions. Without them, I’d have no idea how that adjustment was supposed to work. I haven’t seen this in the US yet.
Glad you liked it! It might come to the US soon, watch out for it. ^^
