Fantastic pen. This is the model used by the Systems Architect in The Matrix movie. Love it.
This is my second Lamy Swift. They look great, feel great and the retractable clip is a touch of cool. The cartridge dispenses the ink evenly and smoothly. The tip glides over the writing surface. My only regret is not getting the racing green when I had the chance. However the Palladium and the Blue are beautiful in their own right.
The LAMY Swift had been on my wishlist for quite some time, and I'm glad that I took a chance to buy it. It writes smooth, has a high quality construction, and the color (Imperial Blue) is pleasing to the eye. I'm thankful to have it in my collection!
