Although I have always used a fountain pen I had just about given up. I had various pens, some expensive, but if they hadn't been used for a time they just would not work. The Lamy works every time. My only reservation is that I prefer a pen which I can fill from a bottle and this came with a cartridge. I know sometimes a seperate resevoir can be bought but I do think it should be provided with the pen to give the option.That is my only gripe and my main concern is that the pen works everytime and it does.

Excellent pen and service.

Lamy are an excellent company and this pen has a good weight to it, writes well and I would recommend to anyone needing a pen that will impress!

A beautiful looking pen with an excellent writing feel that belies it's price. Comparable in use to my TWSBI Diamond 580.

I initially liked the push to close cap as I have to cap/uncap the pen something on the order of 200-300 times in an average 8 hour work day and this Is certainly quicker than the screw closure of the TWSBI diamond.

However within a couple of days the pen developed two issues;
a) the clip wobbles from side to side and has scraped a line of coating off the cap barrel where the clip contacts the cap due to this wobble, detracting from the appearance of the pen. this issue occurred within 2-3 days of owning the pen.

b) when new the cap would click securely onto the pen and there would be no visible join between the cap and the barrel except under exceptionally close scrutiny. within 2-3 days there developed a visible gap and there was play of 1-2 mm when the cap was seated on the barrel. I discovered that within the cap there was a rubber boot affixed inside the cap by a small screw to the end of of the inside of the cap, despite re-tightening the screw with a small screwdriver (note the screw is counter-threaded so screws in an anti-clockwise direction to tighten) I was unable to satisfactorily resolve the issue.

I no longer own the pen as I have misplaced it - the pen was clipped to my thick cotton uniform and became detached at some point without me noticing, so really this is a third issue; an insecure clip - I use / have used a variety of pens in work with the same uniform and same clipping location and have never encountered this issue before, even from inexpensive bic four colour pens, with their known loose clip.

I do love the pen, despite the aforementioned issues and I would certainly purchase another, however I wouldn't recommend it for the type of use to which I put it; wherein the pen must be carried on your person, removed from your person to use several hundred times a day. If it was to be kept on say a desk, wherein the clip wouldn't see use I could see this alleviating two out of three of the issues and if one were to not need to cap/uncap it several hundred times a day I imagine the issue with the rubber boot liner would also be a non-issue.

If viewed purely from the perspective of a quality writing instrument with superb appearance and with a lovely nib (though the same nib as a Safari, which cost £20 less) then I do not hesitate to recommend it.

I have owned several fountain pens - Parker 51, Sheaffer Targa, Lamy Persona, Waterman Carene - all with gold nibs and all reckoned to be smooth writers. The Lamy Studio has a steel nib, but it is buttery smooth with a fantastic even flow of ink, so that the pen just glides over the paper, making writing effortless. Easily as good as all the gold nibs and in addition the pen is beautifully balanced.

A bit over the top? Well, there is also the design to consider. Not the most important consideration, but function and form do come together in the case of this pen. It looks beautiful; the top posts on the body but still swivels round so that the clip can be moved around; the nib unit is sleek and comfortable to hold either close to the nib or further up; the quality is evident. A joy to write with and a pleasure to look at.

Jeeves quietly ran his master's life. Well here is a fountain pen in the same vein. This is a well made, weighty pen that writes superbly well. The colour is a matt black: very chic and very discrete.

The clip is elegant and tactile: I spent part of a meeting today stroking its elegant shape. Like all Lamy pens it doesn't shout needily "here I am", it simply looks good and rewards the owner who has a moment to admire it. Even the maker's name is small, as though Lamy has no need to show off.

Should you feel the need to part with ten times the price of this pen for something a bit glossier, I suggest you try this first. It writes beautifully and will, quietly, grace any boardroom you find yourself in.

A good pen arrived. I have nothing more to say. It's perfect! I'm using it for calligraphic design and graphic design: it looks natural in any way.

Great packaging, with a converter in it. The pen writes beautifully! I would recommend it to everyone who wants a pen with decent weight.

I've quite a few fountain pens and I've actually bought four of these pens over the last three years (as presents for others) as well as for my own use. The people I've bought these for have not been regular fountain pen users but have all said they enjoy using it. It's quite a weighty pen but is reliable and no problems concerning ink flow. I tend to prefer a fine nib rather than medium nib as the line is quite think in my opinion. But you can always replace the nib to your choosing anyway.
A very good pen as a present for someone wanting to get a decent (looking) fountain pen with a weight that is (stereotypically) associated with more expensive models.
