*** My Fave!! ***
I was enjoying my Lamy Joy with it's 1.1 nib so much at my desk, but I wanted a shorter body style that would be easier to carry with me. The clear Lamy Vista is so cool looking and easier to carry, but I don't want a plain fountain pen nib. So I bought this 1.1 nib, plus a new Vista- Viola! My perfect, don't-go-anywhere-without-it pen! The nib that comes on your Lamy will slide off (with some firm persuasion), and this nib will slide right up in place. I bought a 1.9 as well, for lettering some large projects. The 1.1 makes your everyday handwriting look so great, and you can write fast with it. My favorite ink is Noodlers bulletproof Polar Blue. I was just at a meeting where we all submitted short written reports. The moderator actually held up my paper and said to the group 'Look at this great handwriting!' I should have said, 'It's not me- it's the pen!' How funny, because I had just created my perfect pen with this nib! :)

Wow! I never thought calligraphy nib could be this fun! I put it on Lamy vista and it writes fantastically! I always thought I will not like think lined nibs but I am really enjoying it..thanks to this cheaper way to improve my handwriting. Highly recommended!!

I even use it on Moleskine, which I never thought could take anything other than extra fine nib! My secret is however Lamy blue ink, which never bleeds or feathers on moleskine pages even with this stub nib! I have tried so many inks with so many pens all bleed etc...this combination, however, works well.

The lines aren't as sharp as I thought they would be, as the nib's edge is slightly more rounded. More like a cursive italic nib than a true calligraphy nib. Still, with the right paper, you can see the variation, and it looks good. Cheaper papers will just feather and make it look like a regular ol' broad nib. I found that drawing (not sketch) paper has the right levels of thickness and absorbency.

It writes buttery smooth, and you can really showcase some of your better inks with this nib without it being too wide. Lovely!

Wonderful! I didn't expect this to be so smooth right off the bat, but I was pleasantly surprised. Immediately lays down a consistent and slightly wet line of ink (as most Lamy nibs do) and adds interesting line variation to your writing and drawing. I think I may have to get the 1.5mm after trying this one!

The line variation on the paper alone automatically replaces my F and EF nibs for my pen!

This nib is nice and comfortable to use. To get 5 stars, it would have been a bit thinner and able to produce finer lines more easily.

Love my Lamys. I have undertaken a personal project that seems to require that I clean up my handwriting and leave something behind that is permanent. I have, therefore, begun to accumulate several stub or flexible nib pens. I wanted my old friends, my Safaris and Al-Stars, to be able to participate, and since some of this writing is undertaken not just away from home, but in places where I choose not to travel with more expensive pens, I purchased two Lamy 1.1mm Stub nibs.

Nothing special. If you generally like your Lamy pens, these will behave just as do your other Lamy nibs. The line variation is about the same as you get with a TWSBI Vac 700 or maybe the Pilot Prera with the Medium Calligraphy nib.

I bought this to replace a scratchy fine-point nib on a Lamy Safari. The old nib just resisted all my efforts to fine tune it. This little stub is an awesome nib! It was extremely easy to switch out nibs on the Lamy, much easier than I thought it would be. The nibs just slide right on and off. Also, when I first put the 1.1 mm stub nib on my Lamy, it was a tiny bit scratchy, so I ran it for a few strokes on some Micro Mesh to fine tune it, and now it works like a charm. That took the rough edges off and now it writes smoothly, but with that beautiful italic look. It makes my normally loopy handwriting look very pretty and formal. Yet it's as easy to write with as any other nib out there.

Bottom line, this nib transformed an unusable pen into a daily writer, and I plan to replace a couple more nibs with the stub. Well worth it.
