For the price, it's amazing. While it is a little weird that they made it so
much longer than a Safari, much of the basic layout is pure
Safari/All-Star/Vista. In fact, everything from the barrel threads forward is
basically Safari. Balance is good, nib is SMOOTH. This is my first italic nib,
so I was seeing occasionally some skipping when I first started a letter. Then
I realized that I wasn't holding it square to the paper (and the nib wasn't
centered on the feed).
This pen's nib really made my writing much more legible when I write cursive.
I have terrible writing and every bit helps. Feed/Flow is excellent with J.
Herbin Perle Noire ink. I tried this nib on my Safari loaded with Bay State
Blue, and it was awesome on that, too. I want to get all the Lamy nibs now!
This pen is a killer, killer bargain at the JetPens price. Converter included!!

I have been a fan of Lamy pens every since I discovered fountain pens, and this
flat nib gives your handwriting a touch of elegance. The package comes with the
pen and a converter, and a great plus about the pen is that it has a clip on the
pen cap that anchors well against a lab coat.
I write a lot of handwritten letters, and my friends love the letters I write
with this pen :).
Baystate Blue forever,

i wonder if you could put a regular fountain pen nib on it. Anyway, this pen is
pretty nice for the price. I use for formal cards and projects. Aesthetically
pleasing, good flow, cheap price... what more could you ask for?

I bought this pen for myself last year for my birthday. I am very happy with the
purchase and the quick delivery of JetPens. I was hesitant at first on buying
such an expensive pen, because I wasn't use to paying so much for a pen.
However, I now see it as an investment. In the throw-away society we live in
today and the amount of writing I do, I use to go through one disposable pen a
week. What a waste! I'm glad I switched to fountain pens because I am making a
better change for the environment and my wallet! I use this pen often when I am
writing cards or letters, but for note taking and daily writing I would suggest
a smaller nib. I am very satisfied with JetPen customer service and with my Lamy
Joy pen. I would definitely recommend this site and calligraphy pen to friends.

This review is from Lamy Joy Calligraphy Fountain Pen - 1.1 mm Nib Width
, August 11, 2010
I just recieved my Lamy Joy 1.1, and I've been writing with it all day! I love
that it comes with a converter- I filled it with Noodlers Polar Blue and it's
gliding as smooth as silk across the paper. It doesn't have a sharp calligraphy
effect, maybe because of the small nib, but it makes my hand writing look
fabulous. I can write fairly fast, with a nice bold line. This pen has flat
edges for your thumb and forefinger, almost like a triangle, and it's really
comfortable to hold. I don't like it with the cap posted because it makes it too
heavy for my liking. Without the cap, it's light as a feather. Love the red clip
on the black body. This is already a favorite! :)
