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 love my extra fine nib Lamy Fountain Pen. It writes smoothly with no skipping. I love the way it looks, I bought the clear body. It looks better in person than on line. I've shown it to my daughter and she wants one. I will gift her one cause this one is mine.

To hartzog2000:

Your latest "frustrated" post indicates that you're not familiar with the fact, that there's a difference in "nib size interpritation/understanding" between East and West (Pilot vs. Lamy).
In most cases, an F German nib would correspond to the M one of Pilot. Western EF = Eastern F nib. So, the EF on Lamy would correspond to Pilot's F nib, more or less. If you do some research, even briefly, you'll find all kinds of comparison charts and diagrams.
Lamy and their nibs are of extremely good quality and Lamy is the best pen you can get for the price.

I've had mine for about...
May 4, 2011
I've had mine for about eight months now, and it seems to have settled for a consistently fat line, no matter what ink I have in it (using the converter. All parts seem well made, and the pen is comfortable to hold, though with the cap posted it seems rather ludicrously long, and even a bit top-heavy. I usually just clip the cap to my pocket or onto the rings of my sketchbook. Filling and cleaning are easy and uneventful. I honestly have no idea where they get off calling this "extra fine", because it would be at least a medium, or even broad, for my purposes. Others have had different experiences, though, so perhaps there is some inconsistency.

Just got mine delivered to me.
The pen write smoothly.
One thing bothers me though, the ink seep into the front part of the pen.
Although it is not leaking out, it stay there on the clear casing and I do not know how to clean it.
Is this a sign of defect?
Any suggestion to clean it?
