, November 8, 2012
My Lamy cp1 arrived just as pictured in the ad. I especially like the larger
Z26 converter that comes with this pen and wish that Lamy would use it
exclusively. The titanium pen itself is very sleek and contemporary looking and
if you enjoy a smaller diameter fountain pen, this is definitely the pen for
you. When it's closed, the pen is almost identical in size to the Pilot V7
rollerball pens that I use; posted it's slightly longer than the V7. The
balance is perfect - would you expect anything less from a Lamy? It lays down a
nice amount of ink and is very pleasant to use - definitely a "wet" pen. I agree
with some of the other reviews that I might be buying an EF nib in the future
but that's no problem since it's easy to trade nibs between my other Lamy pens.
Personally, I have larger size hands and find this pen takes a little getting
used to, but because the pen is so different from any others that I own, I'm
going to keep trying to get used to it.

Although I've read that this pen has too fine a nib for writing one's signature,
I found the ‘fine’ nib ultimately to be too broad, and swapped it out for an
‘extra fine’ nib. (Note that this pen takes the same nibs as the Safari,
&c.) I think that JetPens ought to offer this pen with that EF nib.
Once I'd effected the nib replacement, I had a pen with which I was and remain
quite pleased; it has become my ‘everyday’ pen, at least for the time being.
But I do sometimes find that I the flow of ink does not keep pace with my
writing; hence I am giving this pen four stars instead of five. (I have been
using Lamy ink; perhaps I shall experiment with some other brand.)
This is not a showy pen, which was part of its attraction for me. Capped, the
pen has very similar over-all dimensions to a Sanford Uniball Micro, and might
be mistaken for such. (It is, however, a heavier pen, and presumably a more
The box in which my pen came was different from that shown here. It wasn't a
worse box; possibly it is a better box; it is certainly a very nice box. But
don't have your heart set on the box shown.

The best reviews about the pen and work of store. Thank you.

Regarding the Lamy CP1 fountain pen (cylindrical pen one):
Excellent, classic, Bauhaus-inspired design.
Solid, slender, sturdy and well-balanced.
Nibs are easily interchangeable (they slide off & on--using double-sided
cellophane tape helps to grip the nib), just like nibs on the Safari, AL-Star,
Logo, and related designs.
All use the same, excellent, robotically produced and consistent nib shape.
Yes, the fine width nib is close to a medium, but it writes well, the feed has
excellent flow, and the fine nib is a good, general purpose width.
My pen came with a Z-26 converter which has an excellent fit to the feed nipple
and it works well.
The clip is solid stainless steel (a Lamy innovation), and it's articulated,
adjusting nicely to different pocket thickness.
The titanium, black matte CP1 is a terrific fountain pen!

I love this pen. I use two of them as my EDC pens. They feel great in the hand
posted and a smooth writer for a SS F nib. A perfect pen for me.
