Did anybody experience that ?
I don't know if I spent "too much time" writing with regular nibs, or if LH nibs are just a placebo effect.
The main problem is, I see absolutely no difference between the two nibs (sorry I don't have a camera good enough to take a pic), and I feel absolutely no difference neither. The only varying thing would be the sweet spot on the M nib, bigger than the one on the LH nib.

I've found the same with Lamy's LH nib. I like a good reverse oblique and other custom variations along the same direction, but I don't get the LH nib. It seems that M nibs that fail quality control are just labeled LH.

im thinking of buying an extra fine nibbed lamy safari. my writing is quite small, and so is unclear sometimes with medium nibs. just as a general overview of the pen, for a begginer enthusiast would you recomment it?
all feed back is appreciated thanks :lol:
