Pen Refills & Inks
I’ve gone through two of the M22 refills in the broad tip, and both have been excellent. It is not quite as smooth at the Monteverde “Soft Roll” refills for the M16, but still pretty close. I am pretty sure the M22 uses the same ballpoint ink as the larger Lamy M16, but for some reason the M22 seems to write a lot better.
Mr. Josef Lamy, formerly a salesperson for The Parker Pen Company in Germany, founded Lamy in 1930. To-date, Lamy maintains itself as an independent family-owned enterprise in Heidelberg, Germany.
Lamy is the market leader in the writing instrument market in Germany, with many award-winning models. The Studio fountain pen won the Good Design Award and iF Design Award in 2005. The Safari fountain pens and Scribble drafting pencils are also widely recognized for their modern and functional designs.
