- Nah, yair... Review by Mark
Yair, it's a kid's pen, its a bit small and the wood will be stained by ink if you're not careful, but I like it anyway. It's a chuck-in-your-bag, hey-where-did-you-get-that, no-worries-about-scratches kind of pen. I use it to play with different nibs - Lamy nibs are really easy to swap.
Cons: No clip, a bit light, grip is rubbery and a bit small for adults. Odd knobby thing on the end prevents posting the cap. Main negative is that it takes only the giant cartridges (one is included) or a special converter (not included). However, I play with ink colours and use a syringe to refill cartidges, so it's not a problem for me.
Pros: no clip - it's a muck around pen, so it doesn't need one. The rubbery grip is comfortable. Push-on cap fits securely. Odd knobby thing on the end prevents pen from rolling off desk.
Bottom line: It is designed to be a kid's pen, but it takes all Lamy's grown-up nibs, so it writes well. It might even be a good pen for those who like drawing with fountain pens - it certainly wouldn't look out of place in an artist's box.
