Q: My Lamy fountain came with ink in the nib. Did I receive a used pen?
Lamy dip tests its fountain pens at the factory, and it is not uncommon for new Lamy fountain pens to have some ink residue in the nib. As with all new fountain pens, we recommend giving your new Lamy a good cleaning before you use it. For more info, read How to Clean a Fountain Pen.

i'm really torn. i LOVE this pen. and doggone it, with the converter, i paid a solid $50 for this pen.

but out of NOWHERE, it's leaking. it's been a little over a year of regular use (not abuse! it sits in my planner in a loop!) and it's started leaking profusely. the same thing happened to my Lamy Safari - but b/c that was a $20 pen, i just chalked it up to cheap construction. or something.

but when my $50 pen starts leaking for no apparent reason (and i'm not talking nib-creep, but full-on LEAKING from the cartridge/converter), there's something desperately wrong.

so i still love this pen - but i'm frustrated. if you buy it, you'll enjoy it - for at least a year. but beware after the one-year mark. i might try to have this repaired, but in the meantime, i'm back to trying to find a good, fine-nibbed fountain pen that's worthy of my hard-earned cash AND doesn't leak. gah.

Very nice pen. It writes the same at the Al-stars, Vistas, and safari's. Different body same pen. I must say that the pen is not as weighty as I thought it might be and that is a plus in my opinion. So if you want a pen with a more classy look this might be one to consider.

Bought this to pair with a Lamy multipen in the same style. I'm using a Lamy blue black ink with it, and it writes very thick, but I'm assuming that the ink is to blame. A bit tiring to write with it for a while. Nib doesn't scratch the paper and is soft on the paper.

Great for hands who find the Al Star too chunky.
