I bought this in a 1.1 mm italic nib and absolutely love the appearance of the text it produced. Like all Lamy's this a comfortable, well-balanced, well-priced pen. If I was going to gift a fountain pen to a first time user it would absolutely be a Lamy. The shiny black with the silver clip is an understated look but this pen is a keeper.
Will come and get another. Need to try a fine nib
Recommend pen to friends and strangers.
