I really went back and forth on this. At first, I wanted to rate the pen a 3.
However, I decided on 4 because of the build quality of the pen and the fact
that they make an adapter for the ink. Really the review needs two parts.
1. The Pen - This is an awesome pen. The weight is perfect, the hand feel is
great. The nib writes smoothly and evenly. It feels good against the paper
with just enough tactile feedback.
2. The ink - The ink is horrible. I got the blue ink and it is the worst ink I
have ever written with. The blue color is weak and looks like someone took REAL
ink and watered it down. It doesn't last. The color fades quickly. I have
been using the pen for about 3 months and the stuff I wrote when I first got it
looks worse than it did when I first wrote it.
My suggestion, buy the pen and the ink adapter. Never even put in the lamy ink
cartridge. Buy some really good ink and enjoy a great pen that writes perfectly
and evenly. The pen is great, the ink is not.
