I'm quite pleased with this pen. I lost my well loved Sharbo X and wanted a good but not too fancy replacement. This is a budget fountain pen, and it writes like one. But it's reliable, easy to use, extremely portable, and I'm quite happy that Kaweco has finally decided that the gold accents on the standard sport aren't everyone's cup of tea. The medium nib is great. All in all, a solid purchase.

I had my Pen Type-A for a few months and then sold it on eBay. I have to say, it's a lovely pen, but not terribly practical. The edges of the case are so sharp that they can damage the point of a hi-tec c if you use it as a ruler. It's quite heavy. Certainly can only live on a desk. No chance that this can be carried or live in a bag. It must be reinserted into the case every time you put it down (as it will roll off your desk, likely breaking the tip). Overall, it's definitely a worthwhile piece if you are willing to live with the limitations. And it would certainly be fair to say that there's no such thing as a practical $150 pen anyway. But for the money, I think there's better options.

I simply had no idea how outstanding this pen would be. I have a sport, which I like, but this is just absolutely amazing.

Well, other than the retracting mechanism, which is cool, I like this much less than the 600 which is half the price. Pen feels cheaper in the hand. The gold hard wear is a bit much. I'm returning this one for sure. Also, the description is incorrect. There is no lead hardness indicator on this pencil. Stick with the 600. You'll be happier.

I gave this 2 stars because its cheap. But it really is terrible lead. Breaks if you exhale hard. Illegible otherwise. Pretty much a waste.

Well, my initial enthusiasm for this pencil has been tempered a bit by use. It's still a good instrument that goes into my pocket daily, but its got some issues. First, the clip is ridiculously flimsy. It might work if you are clipping it into a shirt pocket, but any other pocket, just forget it. Mine died long ago. Second, the eraser cap is very loose. It fell off in the pocket any number of times until I finally lost it for good. Third, you cant replace these parts through Lamy (as far as I can tell). With a bit more attention to detail, this could be the ultimate EDC pencil, but particularly considering the price, its not there yet.

Yes, this is exactly what I wanted. Short enough and safe enough (with the retracting lead sleeve) for daily carry. Comfortable. Durable. Awesome!

I like this pencil quite a bit. It's perfect for carrying around and jotting notes. It's sharp looking and clips into my pocket nicely. It does give my hand a cramp if I write with it too long and I find myself using other pencils or pens when at my desk. Overall, though its perfect for what I use it for.
Field Notes are great!...

Field Notes are great! This special edition is lovely. I've written on it with pencil, gel pen, fountain pen. No problems. A perfect memo book. Major issue with these is remembering to take them out of your pocket so you don't send them through the laundry...

This is a nice little case. It holds three pens/pencils perfectly. In addition to the pen I always cary in my pocket, this pretty much round out any possible need I can think of.
