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 purchased this nib to replace my Lamy extra fine silver colored steel nib for
my Safari, and I was not impressed with the quality of this nib. I experienced a
lot of skipping and general poor ink flow with this compared to my old nib, and
I eventually gave up and moved back to my old nib.
