Thank you, Dr. Manfred Lamy
Posted 21 January 2010 - 16:13
For me, Lamy stands for simple, elegant, innovative and functional designs.
Lamy has not forgotten the middle range price segment, offers exceptional value for money and does not get carried away chasing a "lifestyle" or "luxury brand" image.
Lamy customer service is responsive, fast, efficient and extremely helpful
Lamy has developed a knack for coming out with fresh new ideas, has managed to involve some of the best European designers, but has also continued to follow the maxim that "form follows function."
For a long time now Lamy has become one of my favourite brands.

I really like Lamys for their clean designs - not a lot of ornamentation to clutter up the pen visually, plus the fact that they just plain work well.
A few months ago, I inadvertently stabbed myself with my Safari. Two minutes later, I was signing my name (literally in blood, as it turned out) - but the nib never skipped a beat. It still writes beautifully.
Yup, Lamy's are built like tanks

Yes, please do!
Lamy 27 & Parker 51 comparison
Greetings! I really have enjoyed this post.
Please note that Lamy models 27, 99 and 2000 are related in their modular design, nib shape and feed design. Also, the Lamy Ratio has the same inner-workings and the nibs are inter-changeable with 27 and 99 nibs. One can easily cannibalize parts from less-expensive Ratios to fix 27s. The 2000, and other Lamys, can be easily dismantled by hand (no tools are, generally, required). The ability to service these fountain pens with such facility is also a credit to Dr. Lamy's original design concept.
The Studio series and Safari/AL-Star series have a similar modular, interchangeable parts aspect although the design is not the same as the original 27/2000 concept. The nibs of Studios & Safaris are exactly the same shape and easily slide off the feed. Personally, I think the steel Studio nibs--robotically produced--are better than the 14K "hand-finished" nibs.
