This nib width is equivalent...
January 18, 2012
This nib width is equivalent to "Fine" of most other brands. Lamy makes the width a bit broader than de facto standard. Gives a great line but feels a tiny bit scratchy. Not as soft as "F" and definitely not buttery as "M", this nib is excellent for small-letter writers (like me). I regrect the fact that almost no store, on-line or birck-and-mortar, sells these in chrome finish version. I can't change my Vista nib because of this. Lamy makes EF in both chrome and black, but only 2 online stores (in Europe) sells them. Help us, JetPens!
Almost forget: this nib has a bit of difficulty in flowing the ink as fast as F or M, but a bit of "exercising" in a piece of paper makes the ink flow.

I originally bought my Lamy Al-Star with just the Fine nib. The extra fine is much closer to my writing style for everyday notes. I absolutely love how easy it is to switch out nibs on these pens.
This EF is not as fine as on the Kakuno, if you have ever tried that pen before. In other words, it doesn't go by Japanese EF standards- its slightly larger than that. Its still fine enough to work with my small handwriting.
I got the black finish so I could easy tell the difference from my silver finish F nib.

Like most Lamy nibs where I've tried several of the same marked width, there's variation. I can't find my old EF (I'm guessing it's on a pen and in hiding instead of in my bag of nibs), but I'm pretty sure the new EF I got on a charcoal grey safari is finer and smoother. The new one is really nice. EF isn't a favorite width for writing, but I've been doing pen and ink drawing and I'm liking finer options for that.

Writes very smoothly for an EF nib. However, for whatever reason, my particular nib doesn't fit very snugly onto my AL-Star, which is kind of a bummer because the alignment with the feed gets more and more off-center as I write. I could probably try to fix this very gently with pliers, but do note that there seems to be a bit of manufacturing variability (I've not had this problem with other Lamy nibs).

Not too much thinner than F, but noticeably thinner. It feels fragile, but it's actually much more durable. I also love the black finish.
