Very nice ink for my Lamy AL pen, no skipping, flows nicely. I have no issue with the ink. I find that for my writing I prefer Lamy blue and blue-black inks, but that's just me.

Excellent fountain pen (my first). First of all it is beautifully designed, engineered, and a well-made writing instrument. I find this pen very easy to fill, I've been using Lamy inks. It is comfortably balanced in my hand. Just enough weight with or without posting the cap. And the grip is easy to hold without slipping.

But the best feature is how silky smooth it lays ink down on paper, especially with Rhodia web-notebooks. I'm a professional songwriter and for me there's nothing better than 'old school' pen and paper to take a song from concept to completion. Before the Lamy, I used many different types of pens. Since, it has become my favorite writing tool. As this is my first fountain pen I am extremely surprised to find how the ink simply flows, easily gliding across the page. And because it flows so nicely, I honestly feel my creativity flows as well.

JetPens.com service is excellent. Everything I order is exactly as described and arrives on time. JetPens is now my go-to source for writing equipment.

I love these Field Note Memo Books. First, they easily fit in my shirt pockets, pants pockets etc. I carry two with me at all times: one for songwriting ideas, as inspiration can come at any time and anyplace (hate to think of how many ideas I thought I'd remember); the second for general note taking. These books are stapled, no more looking for scraps of paper. Second, they work beautifully with my favorite Signo 0.38 pens. These aren't meant for fountain pen use, but who cares. I have journal books for that. These are Field Notes, perfect with fine line pens and pencils.

Best journal I've tried to date. I am in the quest for writing instruments, pens & papers, as part of a self-imposed long-term songwriting project - going "old school". I turned to JetPens to find, and experiment with, tools for handwriting. Writing with pen and paper helps to start and maintain the creative process in a way that computers cannot.

So far the Exacompta Journal is about as close to perfection as I could hope for. The size is a great compromise between too small and too large. The paper is a pleasure to write on and the refillable cover holds the refill securely (and looks beautiful). The lined refill has room at the top of each page for date and notes. The pages are permanently bound, they are not removable nor can extra pages be inserted. This is very important for my work, especially when it comes to proof of copyright.

I love writing with this system. I plan to order a bundle of refills to keep a consistent set of records of my handwritten songs. I also ordered another Exacompta Journal in a different color to jot down ideas (e.g. TItles, themes, storylines).

Love this pen, it is...
Verified Purchase
Love this pen, it is quickly becoming my favorite. Writes rather fluidly for a 0.38 mm point. In fact, I am extremely impressed with how small I am able to write, without skipping or any problem whatsoever. It reminds me of fine writing instruments I used as a draftsperson many years ago. The green-black ink is a wonderful color, more of a pine green. I love writing with it so much that I plan to order more in different colors to use for both writing & drawing. At this price I can afford to indulge. Thanks JetPens.
