*** My Fave!! ***
I was enjoying my Lamy Joy with it's 1.1 nib so much at my desk, but I wanted a shorter body style that would be easier to carry with me. The clear Lamy Vista is so cool looking and easier to carry, but I don't want a plain fountain pen nib. So I bought this 1.1 nib, plus a new Vista- Viola! My perfect, don't-go-anywhere-without-it pen! The nib that comes on your Lamy will slide off (with some firm persuasion), and this nib will slide right up in place. I bought a 1.9 as well, for lettering some large projects. The 1.1 makes your everyday handwriting look so great, and you can write fast with it. My favorite ink is Noodlers bulletproof Polar Blue. I was just at a meeting where we all submitted short written reports. The moderator actually held up my paper and said to the group 'Look at this great handwriting!' I should have said, 'It's not me- it's the pen!' How funny, because I had just created my perfect pen with this nib! :)

I just recieved my Lamy Joy 1.1, and I've been writing with it all day! I love that it comes with a converter- I filled it with Noodlers Polar Blue and it's gliding as smooth as silk across the paper. It doesn't have a sharp calligraphy effect, maybe because of the small nib, but it makes my hand writing look fabulous. I can write fairly fast, with a nice bold line. This pen has flat edges for your thumb and forefinger, almost like a triangle, and it's really comfortable to hold. I don't like it with the cap posted because it makes it too heavy for my liking. Without the cap, it's light as a feather. Love the red clip on the black body. This is already a favorite! :)
