*** 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!

It is a pretty good nib. For me, it was slow to get to working condition. Ink flow was very weak (fine with other nib) and had more of a crisp graze than I was expecting. I enjoy the 1.1 italics nib, but am hoping these hindrances will rectify themselves as time progresses. Also, I would reccomend a larger sized nib if you plan a more noticeable calligraphic effect.

My favorite calligraphy nib. Fine enough to use as a daily writer, very comfortable for lots of writing even tho the 1.1mm width seems like it ought to be wet enough to smear for a lefty with any ink. It does smear with some wetter inks if you're writing quite fast, but it does ok with all the Herbin and Lamy inks I've tried in it.
