  Awesome! I have a decent..., March 18, 2011
Awesome! I have a decent amount of FPs and always seem to use Lamy Al the most. This is likely due to its consistent line in all Lamys I bought so far (F si always F, Medium is always medium etc) and is the most comfortable pen ever for holding and writing for many hours. I write and draw with Lamy Al Star the most. Have few of them with different ink colors also and often give them for presents to friends, family etc.

I would love to have the same pen in piston filled style so do not have to deal with cartriges and converters (such as famous Pelikan pens) and a twist in cap as I do not trust click caps when placing in pants or shirts (had no problems yet with leaks though).

5/5

The fountain pen is classy and beautiful to behold. It comes with a blue ink cartridge. I inserted the cartridge and wrote. Very smooth, although occasionally scratching -- probably because of the extra fine nib. A wonderful pen for the price!

This is a smooth-writing pen in a beautiful color. You do have to be careful with it not to scratch the metal (I have a little scratch in mine). It's nice to hold. The pen is a little heavy with the cap posted. I generally like to write with the cap posted, but I will sacrifice it for the comfort of this pen. My next purchase will probably be a Lamy Joy calligraphy.

I keep wanting to like the Lamy pens, but the way the pen is shaped is uncomfortable for me. I am left-handed, but I hold the pen the usual way, not curling my hand over. The bumps on the pen which are very comfortable when I hold the pen right-handed are awful for left-handed writing, so I end up holding the pen on the bumps, not the indentations. If I could rotate the nib a millimeter or two, I could hold the pen as designed and it would be wonderful. As it is, I continue to use the Lamy pens I have because they are a pleasure to write with.

I've found that Lamy pens have a "wet" nib with a generous ink flow. The extra-fine nib is best for me on the kinds of paper I use.

Not so good. I'm not happy. I have bought 3 of them and non of them satisfied me.
