My "goldilocks zone" nib for my lamy safari. Has the boldness of the medium
without leaving such a thick/wet line, and has the precision of the extra-fine
without being scratchy or too fine. Also has buttery smoothness on par with the
Highly recommended if you have pretty normal-sized hand writing. Works well for
both cursive and printed letters.
My favorite size of Lamy nib. As another reviewer said, it is my "goldilocks"
size - not too big, not too small. I find the extra fine nib to be rather
scratchy at times, and the medium can be a bit too thick for some papers (though
very buttery to write with.)
This is the perfect in-between - leaves a bold line without having to make my
letters/lines too large and is still very smooth to write with. Can also write
with this nib upside-down to make smaller margin notes if needed (without being
My lettering is average size, and I can write very quickly when taking notes -
this nib keeps up with no problem; doesn't flood the page with ink, but doesn't
leave you hanging while the feed catches up.
A really nice nib. I needed to replace an extra fine Lamy nib. I could not get
a good ink flow with the extra fine. You can with the fine nib and if you use
the back side of the fine nib you will get an extra fine stroke. So the best of
two worlds with the fine nib. I use my Lamy pens for sketching.
I think the nib writes a bit wide compared to my Sailor fine 21K gold nib but a
major difference in price between the two and seems more medium in size than
fine compared to the sailor. I don't have problems with ink flow, minor drag on
photocopy paper but the better the paper that improves. I think the pen and nib
is great value, I've had it long enough that I just refilled the pen with ink so
it's been used quite a bit. It writes really nice and looks great in my black
First off, i had bought a Lamy Safari, which had a medium nib. It was smooth and
juicy, however, a bit too wide for cheap paper that is prone to feather. This
was exactly what i had in mind: very smooth, not too wet or too dry and roughly
of the width of a medium gel pen. This is the great thing about Lamy pens, one
nib fits all.
