Hey guys, here's a written review of the Lamy Joy with a 1.5mm Italic Stub nib. I haven't seen any reviews for this pen/nib combination, so here goes nothing! Sorry for any seemingly confusing information, this is my first review. Sorry if my handwriting isn't all that good, it never has been.

 

I really cannot figure out why the pictures are uploading sideways, so my advance apologies.

 

Let me know what you think, and enjoy!

Uh, could you rotate the pics so the text can be read comfortably?

 

Thank you

Seth,

How are you holding the pen relative to the paper?

From the line variation, it looks like your pen and hand is almost due right of the letters, rather than below the letters.

 

* * * *

 

I just received the same pen (Lamy Joy) with a 1.1 nib.

And it has just been adopted as one of my favorite pens to write with, because of the ease of making the line variations when I write.

Plus the fact that I like desk pens, and the Joy looks and feel just like a desk pen.

I chose the narrower 1.1 nib because I wanted to use it for general writing, and did not want a wide line difference.  IOW, just enough to make the writing look interesting.

 

BTW, here is Seth's review rotated right side up for easier reading.
