Lamy Reviews

2000
I got my Lammy 2000 fountain pen M nib today, very fast delivery and customer service was great, I requested that Pen Chalet test the nib and I guess they did provide that service given the fp writes smoothly with no skipping. Very happy. Thanks.

AL-Star
The Al STar is a bit thicker than the Safari. The grip is as well. I love this pen and it really looks nice, something really worth showing in public when having to sign things.

My cursive writing leaves a lot to be desired, so, like a freshly sharpened pencil, I need the thinness of line. This nib was smooth and writes excellently, fresh from the package to my Al Star. It's a great nib.

Safari Petrol
This review is for the newly released Lamy Safari Petrol fountain pen with a medium nib: This special edition pen is a delightful addition to a long line of Safari pens displaying its new pleasant body color of bluish green (petrol) and textured surface along with unique longstanding traditional physiognomies. My favorite features of Safari pen lines are its smooth writing capability and reliability plus easy interchangeability of nibs and carefree handling. I like the body color of this particular edition and its matte surface combined with a black clip on the snap cap and a black coated steel nib to write with, hence this pen is going to be one of my EDC fountain pens. It looks quite classy.

Safari Petrol
The Safari is always a good pen, durable and dependable. This Petrol version is no different, just in a new attractive color. As I've noticed before, it seems that the black nibs don't glide as smoothly as the silver version. For some reason the black coating gives it a feel similar to a graphite pencil on paper, at least to me. Unfortunately the new Petrol ink isn't available yet, so I just used the included blue cartridge for now. I don't understand why Lamy doesn't include a Petrol ink cartridge, but they did the same thing last year with the Dark Lilac edition and put in a blue cartridge. It's a nice ink but this seems like an illogical policy. I'm glad I was able to pre-order here at Pen Chalet since these special editions don't last very long.

Safari Petrol
This is my second Safari pen. The look a feel are great. I love color. It looks so much better in person. I really like the feel of the extra fine nib. It is the first extra fine nib I have used. It flows well and puts down nice line.

The order process went well. This pen was a pre-order and the folks at Pen Chalet kept me informed of the status throughout the process. I am very happy with my purchase and would gladly buy again from the Pen Chalet. The added bonus is the sponsor my favorite Podcast!

Safari Petrol
The Safari Petrol differs from other Safaris only in color. I really like the dark teal color even though it seems a bit darker "in person" than it appears in the photos. In terms of the pen's performance, value, etc., I have always believed that the Lamy Safari is a great value with great versatility (cartridge or converter filling, multiple nib options at a very reasonable price). People seem to love or hate the Safari, primarily because of the molded grip section and the design of the pocket clip. I fall firmly in the "love it" camp.

I love the way this pen feels in my hand! I love how seemless the piston knob and nib attachment are... if you don't know where to look you may be hard pressed to locate it... I so wanted to love the way this pen writes, but as a lefty I just couldn't find the sweet spot.

Vista
This review is for the Lamy Vista fountain pen with a medium nib: Although I have enjoyed using a Lamy Safari fountain pen, I bought this demonstrator version of it to see through the interior of the inked-up pen including the grip section and the feeder. This will help me to negotiate how much flushing or cleaning of the pen I need to do when I want to try different color ink in the same pen and to avoid undesirable mixing of the color. The unnecessary existence of the ink window on this clear body pen perhaps means that it is from the same Safari pen production mold. Since all parts of Lamy Safari and Vista pens are interchangeable, it is fun to use the clear barrel on other colored body Safari pens to see the whole ink reservoir status when desired.

LZ24
This review is for the Lamy LZ24 Fountain Pen Converter: Although this converter is a proprietary one for the pen, I see couple of positive features that I can enjoy. (1) Two small peg protrusions on the converter to be engaged with two narrower slots on the grip section allow a visual confirmation of secure and stable compression-fitted converter position after it is connected with the grip section. (2) When the converter plunger is completely drawn back into the red twisting knob after the ink-filling is done, it stops there rather than further turning the whole converter body itself thereby possibly loosening the connection with the grip section or causing ink leakage situation.

Light but don't be fooled, very sturdy. The xf is perfect on the cheap paper we all get at work. Great writer from the first letter. Also Pen Chalet is there to back the products with honest service. 6 stars.

Bottled Ink(50ml)
I use cheap paper a lot. I do a tremendous amount of writing and I see no need in going to great expense for paper. For me, this was way too dim. It was difficult to see and it was used in a Lamy Al Star EF nib.

Replacement
Purchased the Lamy Pur with steel med nib. I enjoy it, love the weight (very light) and the easy grip b/c of the barrel's grooves. However, I wanted a thinner line option and was guided by friendly staff to purchase a nib separately. Who knew! Replacement was easy and now enjoying both nibs. Don't hesitate to purchase the pen or ask staff questions. Really quick turnaround for answers and delivery.

AL-Star Pacific Blue
I'm still pretty new to fountain pens. My daily pen is a Lamy Safari, and I've wanted one of the AL-Stars after falling in love with the Safari. As soon as I saw this lovely blue pen, I had to get it, along with the Pacific Blue ink. It has not disappointed.

Pacific Blue Bottled Ink(50ml)
This my first ever ink purchase, selected to go with my brand new (first ever) turquoise Retro Pop Pilot Metropolitan pen. I have nothing to compare it to, so this review probably isn't very helpful. All I can say is that it is so pretty and I love writing with it.

Pur
Purchased the silver guilloche-medium nib and am pleasantly surprised by the quality and lightness of it. Will not fatigue my hand because it is very light. Those that like hefty pens may wish to look elsewhere. I don't post my pens, but that may add some heft to it. Medium nib lays down a line a bit on the thick size. Perhaps a fine nib would do for everyday writing. Service and shipping always prompt. Enjoy purchasing from Pen Chalet.

AL-Star Pacific Blue
Beautiful pen but it is a VERY vibrant blue! I ordered a fine point, and would probably order a medium if I order another. It writes fine but provides a little more feedback than I would like, but that's just "me!"

AL-Star Pacific Blue
I have used a LAMY Safari for about a year. I bought this because I wanted an aluminum bodied pen and I dig the color. As far as the pen goes, it works exactly as my Safari does. It's a smooth writer and feels great in the hand. The Aluminum is not much heavier than the Safari. I am using up the Lamy Blue cartridge that came with the pen and I don't really care for it. I have an LZ24 convertor on the way and I'll be using my favorite inks soon enough. This pen is easily worth every penny I paid and It's the one I'll carry and use every day.
