I love this stuff. It writes smooth without effort.
Best part is you can just twist it to get the nib in or out. No fuss.
And until it is completely twisted closed, it wont clip on your pocket either, just another ingenious way to make sure it is really closed so no accidental leaks.
One important thing, it does weigh heavy for a fountain, so if you have small hands or if you are not used to it, it might take you time to get used to it.
If you like using fountain, you will love this one.
Unfortunately, I've had to send the pen in 3 times for repair. The first because the palladium finish started to peel off, the 2nd and 3rd times because the twist to open mechanism failed. I think they replaced the entire pen the first time because the mechanism felt different after I received it.
I treat all my possessions, including my writing instruments with care - no dropping, no forcing, and I routinely clean the nib. I waited a long time for this pen to be released and I'm disappointed in the quality of the instrument. When it works properly it is a pleasure to use, but it's frustrating to need to keep sending it in for repair. In the great scheme of things a $300 fountain pen isn't all that expensive. Still and all, for that kind of money it should work properly.
I will say that the folks at Lamy have been easy to deal with - I think this is a QC or engineering issue.
Update - 12/26/2014. Since I got the pen back the 3rd time 11 months ago, it's worked properly. I don't do anything out of the ordinary, just clean the nib in vinegar every month or so. increasing rating to 4 stars. Will update again if issues arise.
First the considerations. It is large. Both the length and the diameter. It is also a heavy pen. Both of which work well if you have issues with your hands. The weight coupled with the larger diameter make for effortless writing.
The other consideration is the form factor.. it is round and straight, so it is like a large piece of chalk.
Issues. I have had issues with the internal mechnical twisting action. Also the issue with it drying out and inkflow, so much for airtight. I have never had issues with other Lamy pens, so this was a bit of a disappointment for me.
I do love the pen, but the issues I have had with it really made me knock down 2 stars. Others might even knock it down a bit more.

Nice weight and feel.
Nib is almost the size of a regular pen. This means it will hold up to lots of use.
Writes smoothly and doesn't skip. Read more
Fantastic pen. It is a little fatter than most fountain pen sections but I like the fat size since I can hold it light and not get fatigue while writing a lot. Read morePublished 18 months ago by john john
