So much criticism of this $59 pen in various forums on this site!
I am not a fan of bling and advertising gimmicks. Nor am I much of a Lamy fan-my preferences are vintage flex, Omas and Pelikan. I've been writing with fountain pens for 40 years.
However, I just purchased a Lamy LX in gunmetal gray and it is a wonderful pen! Far superior to my Studio.
I purchased mine from Goulet, and they included a converter at no extra cost. And of course it also comes with a great matching case. A more than reasonable package for $59.
Mine is a Broad nib and it is perfect-starts every time, smooth without being glassy-I like to feel nibs-flow is not too dry nor too wet. Weight is just right for posting. I don't find the appearance flashy at all, and I like both the appearance and feel of the tinted grip section. I can write and draw comfortably for hours and it never misses a beat.
The black nib is beautiful and not *at all* scratchy-quite the contrary- I recommend this pen!
