Q: My Lamy fountain came with ink in the nib. Did I receive a used pen?
Lamy dip tests its fountain pens at the factory, and it is not uncommon for new Lamy fountain pens to have some ink residue in the nib. As with all new fountain pens, we recommend giving your new Lamy a good cleaning before you use it. For more info, read How to Clean a Fountain Pen.
I actually learned how to write with this pen about 16 years ago, since it was
the standard pen used at our primary school. It's a very comfortable pen and is
smooth to write with. Definitely a pen I can recommend to someone who wants to
start with a fountain pen.
