I got one of these about a year ago. It's a fine pen. I really like the look and feel of it. The ink cartridge is pretty okay, as well. I'm not a massive fan of rollerballs, but this one is perfectly serviceable. The problem with the pen is that the knock is tricky. If you don't press it just right it won't stay down. There's a little hole in the barrel that the end of the clip has to set in to, and it won't do that unless you press it just right. It's not hard to learn, but if you hand it to someone who doesn't know the trick they will be frustrated by it. Problem, or fun party-trick.

The box that the pen comes in is pretty awesome. I keep it on my desk to display the pen. It kinda looks like a rocketship.

This is a pen I enjoy a good deal, it writes nice and black, looks interesting, feels good in-hand. I have had a few of these over the years, and the only slight flaw is the unique knock system does not always click into place, so that instead of just pushing on the back of the knock, you kind of have to slide your thumb down the side of the clip/knock and push it into position so that it stays "knocked," extended. Besides THAT, it writes smoothly, I really love the ink and the body.

Love this pen, even though...
May 2, 2016
Love this pen, even though it has a few flaws. First let's talk about the design the pen is very modern and minimalist. The most prominent feature is the clip, which adds a lot of the personality to the pen, in fact this pen would be bland without it. the clip defiantly isn't practical but it has never annoyed me in my two years of use. the body is very solid and vibrant and colorful. but the pictures say all that without me writing a paragraph, but when I buy a pen like this I am always worried if it looks as good in person, which it does. the grip feels good in my hand but I have pretty large hands, so if you don't like wide pens then your opinion will vary. so now I will get to the refill, which is half of the price of the pen. I really love the refill when it works, yes the refill can be a little unreliable. this pen uses the m66 refill which is for cap less roller balls. the m66 skips, for the first month it was fine, then it started to happen every so often, by a year it couldn't right a minute without skipping violently. when it was not skipping it applied very thick ink so that combined with the fact I only used it for sketching and math for reasons I will discuss later led me to assume I was not out of ink. so me being stubborn I continued fighting the pen for ink by shaking it, which usually fixed it for a minute or two. in retrospective this was not a good idea, but my stubborn urge to make the most of my refill drove me forwards till the refill exploded. the reason I am mentioning this is that it is definitive proof that pen had ink because it was all over my white shirt. to farther clarify I don't blame lamy because any pen would explode if shaken this much. I have also heard of stories of the refill skipping with in the first couple days so I am just putting that out there. other than "le morte de v neck " the refill is pretty solid, it puts out ludicrous amounts of ink into really clean line. writing with this pen isn't the best though because the lines are really thick and pitch black. I have no problem writing with this the experience is very smooth but due to eligibility I prefer my parker jotter. this pens strength is sketching. it can create lines of all types of thickness and as I have said the ink is pitch black and stands out on paper.

-sturdy construction(outlived my parker jotter by three times)
-good grip if you have big hands
-great looking
-best for sketching and jotting down equations
-passable for writing

-too thick and bold to be easily readable

It writes very well, I like the look and design. Unfortunately aside from it being a bit pricey, it easily unscrews when its carried in the pocket. Other then that, I would recommend this. I will be checking out Lamy's other pens as well.

I got this pen a few days ago. I haven't spend a lot of time with it. But what ive seen so far, is that this is not your average pre pack roller pen. This is a pen that has a unique feel to it. Im not sure what makes it feel so different.i guess its a combination of the body feel, and refill glide..but whatever it is, this pen is a looker. Everyone who seen it, asked me about it. I tell them jetpens.com. And only $10.50 not bad for a Lamy. If u buy this pen, you will love it.

(Note: I did not purchase this pen from JetPens.com, but from a bookstore. I very much like JetPens and their customer service, and want to point out that this review does not reflect on them in any way, just the Lamy product itself.)

I really liked the design of this pen as soon as I saw it, especially it's minimalist clip/button, and I liked how smoothly it wrote when I tested it in the store I bought it in. I bought all six colors, including the one with an aluminum body, for myself and for the office I work in. Unfortunately, after using them for a couple of weeks, I realized that their high price ($12+ each where I bought them) does not reflect the quality of the pens. I noticed several flaws that were hard to ignore:

- The pen is larger in diameter than I'd prefer, about the same width as a Crayola marker. This makes it feel a bit awkward in your hand.
- The pen is also heavier than you'd expect. The aluminum body pen is slightly heavier, but not by much. (The aluminum was the only one I liked)
- The ink is very smooth and consistent, but takes a long time to dry and is VERY easily smudged by anything damp, even when fully dried. I have to be careful to not let my arm and hand touch the paper when I write with it, which is really annoying.
- The cool clip-plus-button "bar" is badly designed. Even though this was what sold me on the pen's looks, I later realized that you can't clip it onto anything that moves (like a pocket on your clothes), because the bar slides around, extending and retracting the pen tip and getting ink onto anything it touches. The plastic that the bar is made from is also made from what feels like very cheap plastic, and is too flexible to be used as a tension clip or pen button. In fact, because the bar extends past the tail-end of the pen, I often worry that something will catch on it and snap the bar off completely.
Worst of all though, is that the little "hook" on the end of the bar that catches onto the hole in the body doesn't catch well at all. Just to click the pen "open" so the tip is extended for writing usually takes several tries, because the smooth hook won't catch on the smooth hole in the pen body. Then when it finally does catch and stays there, it sometimes pops out and retracts the pen tip while you're writing with it.

It's a real shame, because I've gotten lots of compliments on my "beautiful pen", but I rarely use it because it's such a pain to write with. If Lamy had made the clip-bars out of metal or a better grade of plastic, this would probably be a pretty decent pen. Not excellent, but alright. Sadly though, the flimsy plastic the bar is currently made of ruins what good qualities this pen does have.
