Lamy pens are known for their modern functional designs, and this Nexx fountain pen is no exception. Its triangular aluminum body with a bright, contrasting plastic cap is sure to catch your eye, while the ergonomic rubber grip and stainless steel nib make writing enjoyable. When not in use, hang your pen anywhere by stringing a lanyard through the clip hole.
The pen is compatible with ink cartridges or a Lamy converter. Installing an ink cartridge is easy—simply insert the cartridge into the pen nib section (no need to push completely), then twist the barrel onto the nib section. Attaching the barrel automatically punctures and installs the ink cartridge. Watch a demonstration in the video below.
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 instructions, see our blog article How to Clean a Fountain Pen.
Not as sleek as the Safari, but it's the same feed and nib. Writing is
characteristic of -and identical to- all other Lamy fountain pens. They are
utilitarian pens meant for everyday and student use, and they fill that need
well. The Nexx is great step up from plastic fountain pens like the Preppy pens
while having a more fun aesthetic than the Safari.
