This is my second Lamy...
, April 21, 2013
This is my second Lamy purchase (first being the Safari Fine). I bought this
because I got tired of taking my Safari pen back and forth from work to home.
Went with the al-star and extra fine because I didn't want to just buy the exact
same one a second time. The EF nib had a small break-in period. I even later
bought a F nib thinking the scratchyness of the EF nib couldn't be helped. Well
after a couple weeks of use that went away and it writes like a dream now. If
anything, the EF nib feathers less on cheaper paper than F nib. I mainly write
on scraps of copy paper and the cheap steno sized books that work buys. I've
had the same cartridge for a month or so and it's finally starting to get low.
While I have a convertor and use it at home the cartridges are much more
convenient at work. I would have preferred a black nib instead of the chrome
one but that's really the only issue I have with it.
