I love this pen!

This was my first Lamy and I fell in love with it. I used to have a very expensive fountain pen that got stolen. I always wanted another but decided to buy an economical one to start. Boy, am I glad I did! I've bought several more fountain pens since this one and its still my everyday go to pen. (even over my Lamy Al-star!)

The shape of the pen was odd but once I held it and started writing, it fit like a glove. Its very comfortable to hold for a long period of time without my hand hurting, which happens quite a bit with smaller or too large pens.

Flow is even and doesn't skip. Everything from handmade Italian papers to regular printing papers, it wrote like a dream. There is one cheap post it I have that it doesn't agree with but it's most likely the ink, not the pen. Pen writes beautifully without skips but ink on that post it is blotchy. Otherwise, its a thing of beauty.

I bought the fine nib and am perfectly happy with it but I need to purchase an extra fine nib. I prefer my nibs small. If you're used to Asian pens, mainly Japanese, this fine feels more like a medium.
