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.

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.

This product helped me avoid paying to replace my Lamy Safari, so that's why I'm reading this so high. The price point could be lower, but hey it saved me an extra 7-9 bucks so I won't complain.

A fantastic nib. Writes a fine line, but not too dry.

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.

hi just nw recieved the lamy extrafine black finish nib.
1) the packaging, the delivery, service by jet pens is excellent.
2) nw the nib. the nib is good. writes pretty well, no skipping issues, but it is scratchy. it is not smooth. though i have heard that lamy fp nibs get smooth by use. lets see this one. i have a lamy safari fine nib, shifted to ef nib. both were scratchy. the fine nib is nw a little smooth. overall i dont think its that a great issue. i am satisfied.
