Regarding the Lamy CP1...
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!
