I have to get a piece of paper to do this later.. I want to compare my 3 different Parker Jotters... I have 2 pens, and one pencil. I also have one that I need to order a refill for that I think my Dad had in college...COOL!

Please note that I was actually trying to write readable.
Normally it looks like a 3 year olds first drawings.

Well...as my parents told me...God makes all special in our OWN ways...

Just kidding! We all have different writing styles.

Sorry for the shoddy scan quality.

Solid handwriting.

I do find it weird that you adhere to the standard 3 to 1 height proportion in your capital "Q" to lowercase, but then you switch to a 2 to 1 proportion for your capital "S".

Do you perhaps grip the pen very tightly and finger write every letter, vs more "wrist / arm" motion..??

I do pinch my pen, and finger each letter. I have time to perfect it...still young.

I have a pretty wide variety of expensive cheap pens, so I figured I'd take the time to write this out with a bunch of them. Not featured are a Uniball Signo DX UM-151 in black, black blue, and green (.5mm), a red pilot G2 (0.7mm), and a dark green Uniball Signo DX UM-151 0.38mm.

I wrote most of these last Friday, but I found I very much liked the Pilot Varsity, so I spent the weekend taking notes with it. So, for contrast, I wrote out the sentence again just now. I need to get a more fine fountain pen now though.

Got a smaller board with white ALPS, Montereys, Cherry Blues, Reds, or Clears you'd like to offload?  Shoot me a PM. Looking for a grey Leopold FC700R in particular.

Wyse buy colors were GSY for the dark grey, GBA for the light grey, and BBI for the fonts.

Looks beautiful. But I favored davkol's style. Dunno why.

Davkol, your ls being 1s confuses me greatly.

Yes, Davkol's handwriting is very' unconventional.

He has extra strokes and breaks the run "counter" to the typical speed/efficiency shortcuts that "Most" other people make.

You mentioned his lower case "L", the line under the l which runs leftward past the stem, this makes no sense  :eek:, what's its purpose?

Also note the "right to left crossing of the lowercase "T" in the first line, doing this would also require either a break or near hand lift, because you can't cross the "t" a second time for the next letter.

To be clear, I don't think your handwriting is bad, I am puzzled as to how/why you've developed some of these shapes...;D
