I've spent the past several years buying packs of uni-ball black pens because the ink's thickness was just right. And I never had to shake them in order to make them work. They're solid pens. But as I thought about the number of pens I went through - and their cost - I thought it might make more sense to go the fountain pen route. So I hit up the old Google and - after perusing a few fountain pen-aficionado sites - finally decided on this pen to begin my fountain pen journey.
And all I can say is "Wow! What a difference a fountain pen makes!" This is a solidly built pen that writes beautifully. The nib isn't too big so the line it draws is about the same as that of my uni-ball fine pens. I wouldn't mind eventually venturing out and trying some different nibs but as an every day nib, this one is perfect. Likewise, the aluminum casing gives it a modern finish and leaves it feeling light in the hand.
Likewise, the inside of the pen is well made and feels solid. Some people might not like the angled grip but I happen to like the fact that it directs your fingers exactly where to go. It's also so easy to fill/re-fill that anyone can learn how in a few minutes. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't include any instructions. I got on YouTube to make sure I was getting it set up correctly.
As you can see from the images there is a little window in the sides that allow you to see how much ink you have left. This is a nice feature though ultimately unnecessary. I'll know I need ink when my pen quits writing.
There's not really anything I would change about it.
This may be my first fountain pen but it won't be my last.
I bought the fine nib version, which lays down a surprisingly thick, wet line. This may surprise you - some say German nibs are wider than their Japanese counterparts - but it's actually the perfect line weight for me. If you're looking for something that writes more like a gel pen, maybe give the extra fine nib a try.
I bought a Lamy Z24 Converter to use with liquid inks, which I highly recommend as a strategy. Take a look at Noodler's excellent inks (the black-as-night Bulletproof Black is a winner) and you'll be writing for pennies per refill.
My one quibble with the pen is that the clip's bottom end juts out a bit. If you clip it on a notebook, the curled end prevents it from lying flat.
I highly recommend these pens. They look fantastic and are such a pleasure to use.
*As a side note, the pen is made of aluminum. If dropped on a hard surface, the pen will most likely dent. If you know your pen will be knocked around and dropped often, you might want to consider consider the Lamy Safari. I have never dented it, but many have.*
In summary, this is a higher-end Lamy Safari. Compared to the Safari, this pen is 1mm thicker and weighs 5 grams more, being made out of metal. The pen also looks very sleek and subtle in the graphite color.
Hopefully they can get this issue addressed, as I hate saying anything negative - love writing with my LAMY's so much!!
