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.

writes very smoothly and love the color of the body!
The CLIP!!! The clip...

The CLIP!!! The clip has loosened, after less than one month's use, to the extent that it falls out of my jacket pocket if I bend to tie my shoe. Disappointing. The clip for my safari has presented no such issue.

The ink flow, ergonomy, and balance of this pen is nice. I use Diamine oxblood with a bit of eclipse black to create a similar color to the barrel. Beautiful. Good fountain pens really are such a pleasure with which to write.

This pen writes great and I love the grooves on the handle that guide your fingers into the right spot.....(that's what she said?)....But honestly, it's a neat feature!

What surprised me the most is how big the pen actually is. I'm used to a Pilot Prera and the Al-Star feels like a pool cue sometimes. But the pen starts right up after being left open for a bit. (hence 4 stars vs. 5 stars)

The purple is a great color and I'll be drooling over some other colors.

Great pen!
