To my eye it appears to be fatter, in it is a nail, that means you are really, really pressing too hard.
Nails are too stiff to give 'line variation'. I would guess you have a stub nib which does....I have a 1.5 in my Joy. I gave my Safari round tip M away to get someone hooked into fountain pens.........then she moved, so I don't know if she's gotten more pens or not.
What width is your stub?
and as said, Lamy nibs are cheap, @$7-8.00, and easy to remove and replace.
You should hold a fountain pen like a baby featherless bird.
You are I think, making baby bird paste.

Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.
