Although I think this pen is very good to excellent, I purchased not too long ago the CP-1, which I use for black ink, and then I purchased this model now for red ink, but, I more like the CP-1, it being a little better pen, as the feel with this one is a little bit slippery for the way I hold and write with a fountain pen. I would definitely recommend this pen, and the converter which I find also excellent, but, if I were to order today I would have purchased another CP-1.

This is actually my least favorite fountain pen that I currently own (out of 8). It's not a terrible pen, but it's just not as comfortable or as smooth as I came to expect with Lamy's products. When I purchased the pen, I was looking for a fountain pen with a sleeker body because I honestly thought the Lamy Safari had a barrel that was just a little too wide compared to my usual ballpoint pens, gel ink pens, etc. (My opinion for barrel size has reversed now that I'm several months into using fountain pens.) I chose the brushed aluminum because I thought the chrome would get too many fingerprints or be too slippery.

I was not as impressed with feel of this pen as I was with the Safari. It's just not as comfortable in my hand. It's a bit too end-heavy when the cap is posted, and it doesn't have the girth to really grip the pen well with that weight. Without the cap posted though, it feels a bit short and trivial. I also strangely found this nib a bit scratchy at first, but after a bit more ink and breaking in, it now writes as well as the Safaris.

The advantage of this pen is that it doesn't scream fountain pen when on my desk. It looks like a nice pen, but it's not as unusual or different as the Safari to draw attention in a meeting. That is until you uncap it and start writing. I've learned to use this pen in the right circumstances, but I don't it enjoy it as much as my Safaris, Kawecos, or Twsbis.
