My Lamy cp1 arrived just as pictured in the ad. I especially like the larger Z26 converter that comes with this pen and wish that Lamy would use it exclusively. The titanium pen itself is very sleek and contemporary looking and if you enjoy a smaller diameter fountain pen, this is definitely the pen for you. When it's closed, the pen is almost identical in size to the Pilot V7 rollerball pens that I use; posted it's slightly longer than the V7. The balance is perfect - would you expect anything less from a Lamy? It lays down a nice amount of ink and is very pleasant to use - definitely a "wet" pen. I agree with some of the other reviews that I might be buying an EF nib in the future but that's no problem since it's easy to trade nibs between my other Lamy pens. Personally, I have larger size hands and find this pen takes a little getting used to, but because the pen is so different from any others that I own, I'm going to keep trying to get used to it.

This is a beautiful medium green with blue undertones. It has beautiful shading even when I use it with my medium nib pen. On my computer, it resembles the Herbin swatch at this web site exactly. While I'd never write a business letter with this color, I never get tired using lierre sauvage to grade student papers or write in my planner.

I keep this ink in my pink Lamy Safari at all times because the ink matches the barrel color so well. I find the ink very saturated with not much shading but then I use a fine nib so how much shading are you going to get? This pink definitely has some blue undertones and is very striking when I use it on my calendar - a great shocking pink color.

This ink is very saturated in my broad nib pen. It is a strong red orange color and definitely resembles the photo of the inside of the cap. I swiped an orange Expo dry erase marker underneath a line of writing and it was exactly the same color. I like this ink but then I don't like "washed out" colors. This will be a fun ink to use this fall!

Lamy violet is a medium to deep purple color with blue undertones. I find it very similar to Diamine violet but slightly more saturated. This is one of the colors that I keep in a pen at all times because it's a great purple that stands out but doesn't scream "look at me."

This is an ink that I keep in one of my fountain pens at all times. It is a rich, saturated turquoise that looks great when I've used it with various fine, medium, or broad nibs. I use Lamy turquoise to grade student papers (they love the color), to write notes to friends, and to make events stand out in my planner. I never get tired of this color.

Verified Purchase
I love red ink and use it frequently. However, I've tried this ink in 3 different pens and with none of them coes the ink look red to me - it seems more brown than anything. I like J. Herbin inks but I don't see me using this ink much at all.
