Stylish, comfortable - a great writing experience!
on 9 April 2016
As an Open University Classical Studies student I can often hand write many pages of notes in a single day. Whilst I’ve tried typing notes directly into my MacBook, I’ve found that I can retain much more if I hand write my study notes, so of course it is very important to use a comfortable writing implement.
About 3 years ago I decided to try a fountain pen in the hope of it alleviating the pain that I have in my arm, wrist and hand when I’m writing for a long while. After much research I purchased a LAMY, and have certainly had no cause to regret this decision. I find that the ink flows very well through the nib, which means I apply less pressure to the page, so the writing experience is far more comfortable.
In addition to this more comfortable writing experience, I also find the LAMY to be quite a stylish fountain pen, the striking colour and design seem to convey a modern perspective on this more traditional writing apparatus.
There are a range of different inks available for the LAMY, which includes erasable (very useful when note taking), and also non-erasable. I usually buy both, and use non-erasable in exams, where my LAMY pen has proved invaluable in terms of increasing the comfort of this already fraught writing experience.
I would make only one improvement to my fountain pen, and this is to include a softer grip, as LAMY do with some of their other products.
Overall though, I think the LAMY fountain pens are stylish, well made, and very comfortable to use. I would certainly recommend them.
